Well now. That was friggin' fantastic! (And I guess that Snark shark
and I disagree? Heh.
Much, much better opening graphics. Tells the story of 'Dollhouse' without any guesswork.
Oh, how much did I squeee seeing Alexis Denisof in the opening credits? Enough to out-geek my BSG/Jamie Bamber loving. That's how much! And, nice suit ;)
Whiskey starts off trying to out to get Topher in so many ways, starts off with lame tricks and develops into nasty evil creepy shit, and then we see just how self-aware she has become I love it. Amy Acker is deliscious, and owned this episode. I hope that her new show dies a quick death so we can have her all the time. She was starting to get really creepy there with Echo too. You start to see where 'Epitaph One' Whiskey comes from. Awesome! I love how Topher evolves too through his scenes with her. "I was designing a person, not a Roomba", and "I didn't make you hate me. You chose to" Wow! He is not clueless after all.
I don't understand why they don't rewipe her though. If she is causing problems, then make her a new doctor, or if her blank slate is evolving, then send her to the attic and program another worn out doll as the new doctor. Isn't that the whole point of their technology?
Sadly, the first half of the Echo assignment lost a lot from the strong Whiskey scenes. I found myself left cold by that storyline a little, but I was still pulling a lot for Echo as she became more aware of her extra personalities during her fight with Jamie Bamber, and she is believable (ED acts?!) as she shows her enragement with her "husband", and then, as she loses the plot a little. But once she started to regain all of her memories and went from confusion to confusion to strangth, damn! Eliza is bringing it this season!
And the Dolls are all starting to wake up...
This is a damned great start to the season, but I still don't think that we'll get many new viewers, but they should still do better than Jay Leno ;)
