Storyline

In the year 2019, a small group of survivors stumble upon the underground complex of the disused Los Angeles Dollhouse. The group, Mag, Zone, Griff, Lynn, along with a little girl named Iris and her mind-wiped father are "actuals," actual-minded people struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic society where a tech mind wipe has turned most of Earth's population into "scavengers" or "butchers." Mag and her team struggle to unlock the secrets of what brought on this disaster where the Dollhouse's mind imprinting technology was discovered and abused by the world in which the answer lies within the active Whiskey, who still resides there and who may know where the former active Echo/Caroline is and whom may lead the group to a place called "Safe Haven," while a mysterious and lethal evil lurks among them. Periodic flashbacks show how Paul Ballard became Echo's handler, and how DeWitt realized that Rossum used the imprint technology in their capacity to bring on the end of the world ...

Its feels good to have your faith rewarded
28 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dollhouse, the latest brainchild from Joss Whedon, was in danger of joining his other masterpiece, Firefly, among the ranks of shows that were never allowed to reach their full potential. Admitedly, Dollhouse didn't have a strong start. It was clear that the writers were trying to find its footing and establish what the show was, and thus the Suits at the network were considering axing the show and giving its timeslot to their next piece of "reality" drivel. Buffy, one of the most creative and critically acclaimed shows of my generation, started out exactly the same way in its first season. Like the loyal Whedonite that I am I trusted that given the chance Dollhouse would emerge equally well.

Today my faith was rewarded with the season finale "Epitaph One". Fear not, I'm not going to spoil it for you. Straying completely from the "who is Echo this week" formula, it fast forwards to the not-so-distant future and we are left chomping at the bit to know how things got to this point. I can't wait for season 2. Dollhouse is no longer a show I like to see, its one that I need.
