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…

Week 3 of Dollhouse season 2 and… jackpot! I don’t know if it was the fact that Eliza Dushku was prancing around like some 18 year old university freshman, flouncing and giggling and and and… *takes a breath* Or maybe it was the deliciously creepy sociopath and his great pre-intro sequence. But still no sign of Dr Saunders. I did a quick Google search and turned up nothing. Is Amy Acker pregnant or something? I can see she’s in another…

Dollhouse had its season 2 premiere last night in the US. If you didn’t watch it… for shame! It was really quite good. Surprisingly so.

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…

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…

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:…
