I think they had way too much going on at once.

Good to have the show back though.

barely 3 million viewers...

i love the fact that they have streamlined the show more but the pacing was weird...there was A LOT going on and it came off like a grey's anatomy episode with like 5-6 storylines and all of them miraculously being resolved in the last two minutes of the show...

im rooting for the show to stay on the air...but if the pacing continues like this..i don't know.

but i am liking where the characters are going...glad Dr. Saunders (Amy Acker) sought "freedom" in a sense...loving the potential love story between her and Agent Boyd (Harry Lennix)

Adele (Olivia Williams), as always, is killer...

...it's too everywhere, and the sexualized parts of it basically make me me feel like i'm watching brainwashed slaves or something...i really wish they'd leave that part OUT....i like the show, but they've gotta get more focus and stop trying to throw everything at the audience hoping something will stick and make you wanna come back

...i'll enjoy it while it's on, but i don't expect it to be on long....

Cause I'm constantly saying "Come on, DOLLHOUSE. You're better than that."

After the great finale and the great "Epitaph One," I thought this show finally had stable legs and was gonna hit the ground running. But no...

The only thing I liked (and I mean, liked A LOT) was the scene between Topher and Whiskey/Saunders. Other than that, I wasn't really feeling it. I feel like it was just an episode to set up Ballard being Echo's handler... which could've been done last season in the finale.

although you're right. seems like there are a bunch of random, unrelated storylines going on. They need to go ahead and tie them together if they hope to attract more casual viewers.

Nice 'Super High Me' reference!

I really enjoyed the second episode.
Seems to be back on track after a somewhat mediocre season opener.
Weird to see "Wesley" speak in his normal American accent.

Anyway, I liked it.
Interesting to see the plan evolve on taking down the Dollhouse.

October 12, 2009
Fox: We will air all 13 'Dollhouse' episodes

"Dollhouse" fans can breathe easier: Fox will air all 13 episodes.

On the heels of impressive DVR data for last month's "Dollhouse" premiere, network executives say they will run each produced hour of the show's current order despite the Friday drama's modest overall ratings.

"We're going to run all the episodes," Fox scheduling chief Preston Beckman said. "We're not saying we're happy with those numbers, or accept them, but we don't have to overreact. During sweeps we might have to jack up the numbers a little , but we plan on completing the order for this show."

As for ordering additional episodes, or a third season, Fox says they will make that decision after the current run.

The news represents a relief to "Dollhouse" fans that the current season won't be cut short, yet also suggests a full-season order is unlikely. Waiting until all 13 episodes have aired before making a decision generally means allowing production on the show to shut down for the season.

Reached by phone, Joss Whedon (who has a terrible-sounding cold -- feel better!) said he's writing the 13th hour to give fans a degree of closure.

"We'll definitely have closure, but will leave some doors open," said Whedon, who's currently shooting the eighth episode. "When we got our first numbers, which were bad, the first thing Kevin Reilly said was, 'You'll have all 13,' which was great. They're not going to pull the rug out from under us."

Beckman said DVR results have played a role in the show's fate, though wasn't surprised by today's results.

"It's one of the reasons that we brought it back; we knew it was DVR friendly," Beckman said. "We expected to see this, and hopefully we'll see increase from week to week ... with some shows, you have to look at the bigger picture."

Beckman also humorously characterized deciding the show's fate as a bit of no-win situation when it comes to dealing with Whedon's passionate fans.

"If you cancel it, you're an asshole; if you renew it and then don't put it back on, you're an asshole," he said. "I'm still paying for 'Terminator.' 'Dollhouse' has a small rabid fan base that in the world of social media seems bigger than it is. We gave them another season knowing full well we were going to burn in hell if we pulled it."

the main plot was messed up but i understood why they would go there...adding in the college prof and the twist was extra and it bothers me cause i know there were folks watching who thought it was sexy.

this week was a better example for me, because though it stayed creepy, it stayed focused. and it had more topher + better actress than dookie.

well not the creep but the idea that the company was okay with sending her away was just wrong.

when the fight started i just knew she was going to come back with something but nope. i guess he just wanted her to be herself without anything in her head.

feel bad that topher and other dude have to live with killing dude and she gets to forget about it

Summer did that geek shit perfectly too. Although, I didn't really get what her beef with Caroline was. They explained it too quickly.

....the creepyness was sorta gone, altho i didn't get why dewitt and crew were actinag AGAINST Rossum

....Caroline left ole girl for dead when they raided that lab (they hinted in a previous ep that Caroline did somethin on the campus she was on and it all went wrong) ....that's why she hates her, but we just really saw how ole girl remembers it, not how it really happens....she seemed to have a truly warped sense of reality anyway.....

he had really great characters as leads and if you have that you can build slow...BUT, here he has Dusku who while attractive, hasn't really been interesting on screen since she was Faith...i get that he wanted to build, but to wait a season and a half later to really get the ball rolling is idiocy...

Two episodes left. And one of them is "Epitaph Two," another future episode. So like... the penultimate next week is kinda the end of the line. I want at least 5 more episodes of the high quality caliber the post-sweeps episodes have been to make up for making me watch Doll of the Week bullshit.

In response to Reply # 42


  

          

Slow build would be getting to the point by last years finale. He fucked around.... got cut... and then made a show out of it. Joss fucked up. This would be like two seasons of Buffy before realizing she's the slayer. Or two seasons of Angel without getting into Wolfram-Hart. Or two seasons of Firefly without the Alliance. He fucked up. Plain and simple.

In response to Reply # 45


          

procedurals are all the rage, the show probably would have been a huge hit if they focused it on Topher and called it 'The Dollmaker'

Anyway, I think you're right, Fox (as usual) is to blame. It isn't any coincidence that once Fox stopped caring, the show got better. Epitaph One would not have happened if cancellation hadn't been looming last year.

47. "That's actually not the case this time."
In response to Reply # 46


  

          

Joss was more into doing those awful Doll of the Week storylines. Here's part of an interview swiped where he talks about it.

Whedon: "midway through Season 1 "OK, here is the show." We got the espionage that the network wants, but its the questions about identity that we want. There are other things about the show that never came back and I didnt really realize it until the second season, things that we were ultimately sort of dancing around.

The idea of sexuality was a big part of the show when it started and when that fell out, when the show turned into a thriller every week, it took something out of it that was kind of basic to what we were trying to do. And then also the fact that it was a thriller every week meant that we couldnt go from genre to genre, which is really what I wanted to do. But we did manage to keep the questions about who we are and the interpersonal stuff and the amazing ensemble and everybody shining and doing cool stuff.

But there was We always found ourselves sort of moving away from what had been part of the original spark of the show and that ultimately just makes it really hard to write these stories. It makes it twice as hard as usual. you have that sort of kernel that youre building on thats completely solid. You know, "She is a little girl with super powers." "He is a cranky doctor who always gets it right." Whatever it is you sort of can build off that. When youre trying to back away from your central premise at the same time as youre making that it gets complicated."

I hope Joss learns that he needs to cut to the chase from now on.
This was a failed experiment in the slow build trend.
Joss needs to just do Joss.

Man.

I hope he comes out with a new show fast.

TV needs this.

the boyd flip makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

the only thing going for it is that despite two seasons of constantly being onscreen, boyd has never made sense anyway, so why should he start now?

In response to Reply # 53


  

          

There could have been a Real Boyd and Founder Boyd. They could have written it so that Founder Boyd has inhabited Real Boyd's body at strategic times during the series.

That way they can write around all the awkwardness.

... from the Season 1 DVD.

They rushed through a lot.
Would have been interesting to have seen it if they had just one more season to wrap it up and it wouldn't have been so crammed towards the very end.


Ok, Joss.
What's next?
