We finally enter the mysterious Attic - the secret vault where the Dollhouse keeps damaged actives and problematic employees unconscious and in a perpetual state of terror. Adelle has had Echo sent ...
Set after the events in Terminator 2 (1991), Sarah Connor and her son, John, try to stay under-the-radar from the government, as they plot to destroy the computer network, Skynet, in hopes of preventing Armageddon.
Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
Stem cells, gene therapy, transplants, and cloning have changed the definition of "humanity" in the modern world, but the darker side contains monsters that only few are brave enough to face, because the future lies in their hands.
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
Joss Whedon had a five year plan for the series and had already worked out how the characters will evolve over time but the show only ran for two seasons. With this in mind, you can see how the plots of season 2 could have been spaced out to four seasons. See more »
One of the BEST hours of TV I've Seen In A Long Time!
I've been waiting for this show for a long time, and I've been thrilled so far!
Granted, the synopsis of the show that I had read didn't sound like something I would be greatly interested in, I thought I'd give it a chance. And, I'm VERY happy that I did. The pilot left me looking forward to Friday all week long. And when the second episode did arrive, I'm not sure I took more than 5 breaths all hour. I was too busy taking in every little bit I could. And when it was over, I watched it again.
It does make me wonder why Fox would put it in a slot where it might get as many viewers as it could. But, I have no faith that if people just turn on their TV's they'll be hooked. I can't seem to turn it off.
My only complaint? It's not on 5 nights a week!
