OK OK! I admit, the double-barrel Dollhouse episodes in the past three weeks have totally thrown me off-guard. They’ve been pretty damn awesome (with a few iffy bits), and I’ve been trying to take screenshots, but I just haven’t had time to collate them all into a blog post. If you haven’t been watching Dollhouse — due to mixed reviews, or lack of time, or whatever — it’s probably worth watching for what promises to be a pretty spectacular finale…

I assume it was written by Joss Whedon himself, which would probably explain the pithiness — and the sexuality! He sure seems to like sexiness, eh? Amy Acker and Eliza Dushku were both stunning this week. I don’t know if Dushku has put on a little weight or something but she looked positively glowing last…

… it’s because I’m busy playing video games. If, for some Godforsaken reason, you still don’t play video games, let me tell you something: Winter is gaming season. The summer blockbusters have been and gone. The warm, hazy friend-filled nights spent outdoors have dissipated with the first chills of September. Slowly but surely we retreat to our warm, cosy caves, fall to our sofas, plump our pillows and… turn on the TV! Autumn is when most big games and TV…
