Dollhouse : Finished Season 1 on DVD
Sunday, March 21, 2010

It's all been said, I suppose. Nothing really new here from me.

Just new to me, is all.

Yeah, I know.... a bit late to the party. I'd always planned to go back and catch up on EVERY ep, on DVD, as is my fav way to watch really good shows.

Looking back, I can see why this show never really grabbed me from the start. It has classic 'Joss' elements, clever twists and such, but it was missing that binding piece which draws one into a show and has 'em coming back for more.

The show was kinda like taffy. Nice, but doesn't really do much for me.

( no idea where that analogy came form. It's been years since I even HAD taffy. )

I am looking forward to seeing how the series wraps up, but more out of respect to those involved ( writers, actors, etc.. ) than the story as a whole. If that makes any sense.

It's sorta weird, because there were elements of Joss which have become all too familiar, along w/ some new things tossed in..... That is, I enjoyed and recognized a lot of what was going on, but didn't really FEEL it.

Well, I don't wanna get all wrapped up in trodding over what's been trampled down already. Nice way to end the series(?) no, season 1, though. Looking forward to season 2. I REALLY have no clue on these eps, as I avoided them completely the first go around.

Oh, same, mostly because by the second episode I figured out that Topher was one of the few characters who was unmistakably on a redemption character arc path. Echo and Ballard didn't interest me much at all. :x

I agree, there was no one to draw the "GO YOU!!!" cheering section. Which some shows can do that, some can't. One where there are very dastardly forces at work, you need something to pivot on.

I personally always cheered for Topher, but that may have something to do with myself being a computer science major. lol

The problem was you had all these well developed characters with interesting stories (except the two main characters), but no real reason to care about or cheer for those characters. IMO.

But it actually is a decent story.
