After weeks of sticking with DOLLHOUSE as a penance for missing out on the entire BUFFY/ANGEL phenomena, not to mention only discovering the brilliance that was FIREFLY long after FOX sent it to join a long list of shows in their brilliant-but-cancelled graveyard, this TV Addict is happy to report that tonight, unlike the previous six weeks, we’re actually looking forward to the show for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with our guilt-ridden conscious.
What’s changed? Well it’s simple. After five weeks of watching a combination of unsympathetic dolls act like glorified escorts and their even less-likable handlers pimp them out to anyone for the right price, there is finally someone to root for. Someone on the inside that is willing to help Agent Paul Ballard bring the Dollhouse down. And frankly, it’s about time. Because television already has more than its fair share of shows that feature beautiful people doing questionable things: It’s called reality television and we’re sick of it.
