Did you love Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Maybe you prefered Firefly, but wished it didn't get damned by Fox executives? Do you just think Eliza Dushku is hot? All are valid reasons to watch Dollhouse.
Premiering tonight on Fox at 9/8C, Dollhouse is the story of a young woman named Echo (Eliza Dushku). She's essentially a human wiped of personality, exploited for missions by an underground agency. So each week, her mind is remapped with a new personality and set of skills. Meanwhile, the FBI isn't too happy about it all, which is where Paul Ballard (Tahmoh Penikett, who you may know from Battlestar Galactica) comes in.
Given that our brain is literally shaped by our thoughts and experiences, the idea is only moderately far-fetched. In other words, it should make for great sci-fi.
Fox has only signed for 13 episodes so far, but series creator Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefly/Serenity) has leaked that he has a five-season plot arc in mind. Let's hope Dollhouse is as great as we expect and its complete story comes to fruition. [Dollhouse]
