I’ve just watched episode 12 of Dollhouse, the finale — well, the season one finale, let’s keep our fingers crossed that it’s not the finale — and I thought it was a little sad that throughout the main thing on my mind was Eliza Dushku’s cleavage. Eliza’s not a big girl. She’s short, petite, and certainly not that well endowed in the boob department, but due to the wonders of modern technology — tit-tape and carbon-fibre push-up bras (do they…

I’m going out in a moment, so I didn’t have time to creatively title this entry. Sorry. How about, ‘Dushku and Dichen get it on!’ or ‘Oh, so he’s not actually a stoner?’ (disregard both of those, please, they’re both potential spoilers…) There’s a word that describes this episode: Finally. Finally, so many bits of the story slot into place. Plot strings are tied off. AND it’s to be continued; all proper TV watchers love a good TBC! The 40-minutes-out-of-an-hour…

Episode 10 of Dollhouse saw a very interesting ‘mechanic’ examined (one almost identical to Caprica, incidentally, if you’ve seen the leaked pilot): If you can be uploaded into one of the Dolls, can life continue after death? At what level of complexity/accuracy does the the copy become more than just a copy and gain sentience? That’s a complex, existential dilemma which I certainly won’t argue about on a sunny Saturday afternoon, but no doubt a topic being discussed on geekier…

A small review to justify this blog post: Episode 9 of Dollhouse. Quite strong. Dushku, somehow, is actually becoming quite a strong actor. Was good to see more of the British girl (shows how much I value journalistic integrity). They finally gave the Australian girl, Dichen Lachman, an almost-mute part to hide her truly atrocious acting. It’s looking more and more like a mini-series, though I guess with the whole ‘The Dollhouse Is Global’ thing, they could stretch it out…

To the boys: I’m afraid Dushku wasn’t all that hot this week. Even in the opening scene, where she was wearing a rather fine bustier/corset/something juicy, she had incredibly deep-red lipstick which made her look a bit like a courtesan (though, I guess that’s what she ultimately is — a high-value hooker). To the girls: Tahmoh Penikett, topless. Muscles rippling, and lip quivvering with rage. Don’t say I don’t spoil you. For those of you that want an episode review:…

I’ve decided, as Saturday is the day when almost no one surfs the internet that I would dedicate it to whoever happens to be the focus of my beady, male eye. This week, and for the next few weeks no doubt, it will be Eliza Dushku. If you’re a girl, or you simply have no interest in looking at a cute girl in a very short skirt, you can stop reading now. Alternatively, because let’s face it: you have nothing…
