Ok, so the series starts off with Joss Whedon, celebrated writer-director-composer, except no-one wants to work with him, then he has a hit web show, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and he catches the attention of the dark and shadowy Fox Corporation. Fox wipe Joss's brain to make him forget that he worked for them before when they became mortal enemies.

So now Fox can make Joss do whatever they want, everyday they activate Joss and set him to work making a television series for them called Dollhouse. Everything works out fine for them. The show is flashy, cool, sexy, confusing, humourless, disconnected and unengaging. Without the real Joss to complain Fox don't even have to spend much cash on it. But can the technology Fox has used really remove all of a person's memories, their sense of self, their soul?

As he works from episode to episode it becomes apparent that Joss starts to remember who he is, but knowing he shouldn't draw attention to this fact he keeps it to himself and works slowly to improve Dollhouse from within. From episode 6 `Man on the Street' flashes of brilliance begin to save the show, culminating in the superb episode 9 `A Spy in the House of Love', by now Dollhouse has become gripping, funny, dark and touching with an intelligent and complex storyline that has people thinking. Joss is even able to help other people taken over by Fox and makes Eliza Dushku realise that she is an actress.

By the end of the series we have been taken to a place we little imagined in the beginning. I won't give any spoilers but Dollhouse does end with Joss improbably winning renewal for a second series, this time will he be out to revenge himself on the people who did this to him and turn out a flawless piece of work from the start?

Ok, so the first five episodes are rather slow, but that is not down to Joss Whedon (creator), its down to the fact the network (FOX) kept sticking there noses in and changing the scripts so the first 5 episodes could be "stand alone" and act as five pilot episodes so people could tune in and understand the show. Episode Six is really when the show hits its stride and the episodes following on get even better (Episode 8 is by far the best episode) all leading up to the finale which was a great ending to the season.

Please DO NOT just watch the first 5 episodes and stop watching, i PROMISE it gets better by episode 6. And by the looks of things this show is going to rock in its 2nd season :D

You can really tell Joss is spending time on this show, there isn't alot of TV series out there were it gets better every episode. Most of the time they start off good and begin to go down hill.

Here's a tip for anyone who hasn't seen this show yet. Buy the DVD and watch the "Original Unaired Pilot Echo" first. This pilot is included on Disc 4 under "Special Features". It is is mind blowing and sets the scene perfectly for what follows in the early episodes, which are not slow as some reviewers have said, but are superb flashback driven action packed episodes making perfect sense having seen the pilot. Why the network never aired this pilot is beyond me - it adds immensely to the enjoyment of this brilliant original sci-fi drama. Lastly I must say Eliza Dushku is just superb in the role of Echo with a winning combination of action, beauty and naivete. This is unmissable sci-fi drama - just follow my tip and you won't be disappointed.

This show is a bit of a departure from Whedon's normal writing style. Witty banter is seldom seen here. Instead what we have is a crazy concept for a show, essentially due to the fact that the main character has no character . . .. yet.

The show is about a girl who has been plucked from her normal life by a corporation and had her persoanlity wiped. She can then be hired by people for a great deal of money to perform almost any function they wish such as girlfriend, FBI agent, scientist etc. The employees of the corporation merely implant a new personality into her now blank slate of a brain. She then returns to the dollhouse to be brain wiped again at the end of the assignment. Weird huh?!

The show seems to take on a "character of the week" format for Elisa Dushku, but with a thread running through the whole series of "Can you ever truly wipe a human being's personality?", "Is she retaining some sense of self?". This is without a doubt the more interesting underpinning of the show. Joss seems to sneak in a hint about the answers to these questions with each new episode.

There are a great deal of other aspects to the show, but I think I've covered the most important one.

There are a couple of negatives though. The main one is that the first few episodes are a bit of a "lets see how many sexy costumes we can put on Elisa and let her pose around in them?", kinda deal. I don't mind them dressing her up to look hot but it can get a little soft porny occasionally which cheapens the show. Then there is, as previously mentioned, the lack of humour in the first half of the first season.
