A shadowy organization uses mind-wiped humans known technically as "actives" and colloquially as "dolls" who are imprinted with false memories and specialized skills for various tasks on behalf of paying clients. When they are not on assignments, they live in an underground "Dollhouse", a facility that protects and provides for their needs, including food, exercise and sleeping pods little bigger than coffins. One of the dolls, a young woman called Echo by her handlers, is slowly becoming aware of herself and what is going on. Meanwhile, at least two different people on the outside are trying to bring down the Dollhouse, one by finding Echo and the other by using her.Written by
See it all the Way Through To The End. Many judgements were made after only a few episodes before the plot arc was revealed. Brings both hope and terror for the future. Genius. Reminds me of the creativity of the best of Twilight Zone and Outer Limits, with a bit of Phillip K. Dick thrown in.
Invest. An easy 8 out of 10 even if sci-fi is not your thing.
