Dollhouse  
Okay, all showered, got some cheeseburgers cooking, and Dollhouse starts in 15 minutes :)

... make that zero minutes :)

Hmmm, not only have i not watched the DVD only final episode, i don't remember what exactly was going on at the end of last season =P (Other than the obvious Alpha and Omega bit)

I can't remember if the cute science assistant was an Active or not. Was the doctor the only surprise one?

Is it just me or is the doctor acting more flighty now? Seems a somewhat strange reaction to finding out your whole life is a lie. Come to think of it, when does her contract expire? Doesn't she now know what he maximum lifespan is?

I'm trying to think of what could be kinkier about this situation other than the whole wedding being a fake, because that really doesn't seem that bad. Very sad in a psychological sense, but not that kinky.

Okay, she hasn't been turned off yet, so it's definitely more complicated than that... hmmm, so er... Ballard is running a sting? How long must this have been going on to convince a criminal to get married to an Active?

Number one? As in the first Active created? Or just in some kind of ranking?

"I know why I'm here." "I'm here for the booze" :)

Okay, i'm still confused on how he got conned into marrying her in the first place. How long has this op been going on?

Oh hey, we just learned on Mythbusters that holding on to a car like that is impossible :)

So a couple hints of things, but it doesn't seem like any major new developments so far.

Apparently the doctor won't be around much this season. The actress got another job on another tv show or movie (i think) and therefore, she is going to be busy (At least, i'm almost positive it was the doctor (i'm like 98% sure it's the actress who used to play Fred from Angel)). I only know this because I read an interview with Joss Whedon and one of the questions was about any of his past crew showing up this season (besides Fred). Apparently, River is making an appearance, I do believe (i think he even wrote the part with her in mind).

Just my two cents. I'll know more about what you are talking about once I get to see it via Hulu.

Um, if you haven't seen it yet then why are you reading the spoilery bits silly? :)

Kind of unrelated--did you and shelleycat watch Grey's Anatomy this week?
DonAithnendonaithnen on September 26th, 2009 08:14 pm (UTC)
Yup, we did. Well, shelleycat did and i was kind of half-watching, half-playing DS and half-tipsy :)

I don't believe Ivy (?) is an Active, at least that we know about. I suppose stranger things have happened, but it would be a bit odd this early in the game to have an Active "officially" generating imprints (or even helping with it).

Is it just me or is the doctor acting more flighty now? Seems a somewhat strange reaction to finding out your whole life is a lie. Come to think of it, when does her contract expire? Doesn't she now know what he maximum lifespan is?

It's not clear that she'd be privy to details like when contracts are up. Even if she was so privileged in general, she obviously didn't have access to her own file.

Number one? As in the first Active created? Or just in some kind of ranking?

From earlier dialogue in the episode (and at the end of last season, IIRC), this refers to either attractiveness or revenue generation, or both.

It seemed to me odd that they'd start off the season with such a rough episode (as you say, the premises of the Echo portion seemed forced), unless the network laid down a demand that "this is Dollhouse; Echo must have sex or people will forget what the show is about". Maybe it'll look better in retrospect; at least the dialogue was plenty sharp.

At least they got settled what Ballard's "official" role is to be. The other choice would've been to make Echo's handler more developed than "random asshole in a suit". Maybe introducing two characters in an episode is a no-no, though :-)

For what it's worth, episode 13 isn't going to contain any relevant material for a little while, and any of it that is relevant will have some context in this season to stand on, so you're not really lacking information in that respect.
