General Review 'Dollhouse'

Dollhouse is a very ambitious show. It has two facts on its side; it is new and very unique. Dollhouse is not a typical show you would get on television, which means its original and gives its viewers something new to look at. The only thing it lacks is development. We are introduced to Echo; a walking emptiness, which the writers give us no time to appreciate.

I like the idea of the secret organization, however warped, creates the perfect person. Wiping memories with the use of technology.
Overtime the liner "Did I fall asleep?" would become a bit redundant and aggravating. Each episode is supposed to reveal a new element to the story, but I do not really find myself relating to anyone in the show, maybe it is because I don't really know who they are.

Dollhouse shows great potential for a good series, but the writers need to smooth out some rough edges. I need to know more about Echo or that person before Echo, more about how this Dollhouse operation is so secretive and how they get their clients. The Officer that keeps poking around seems to be more on the outskirts of the show. I need to know why is he so committed to finding Dollhouse. I feel that the script needs someone to be poking around, like a for and against, rather than this Cop actually having some compassion for the manipulation of people by the Dollhouse. Why did they use the name Dollhouse to begin with; walking dolls in one location. Too many unanswered questions.

There are many pieces which do not fit together. Still in a show the early in the developing stage I wouldn't really grade it as yet, because there is always room for improvement.


Requests are being taken so patients is a virtue.
