Its gotten so good in the past few episodes, I know a lot of the first season wasn't great, infact I was surprised it was renewed, but still... the second season has really picked up... its disappointing.....

I think I will too, there's some good humour in it at times.

Me too, even more so we saw some of the big picture that Joss thought of.

Especially after tonight, I'm really going to miss Dollhouse.

Joss made us question identity, the nature of the soul, and asked what is a person? It's the ultimate separation of mind and body and asks if you are who you are without one or the other. And what are the rights of the two halves, as it were? How do we treat the helpless? So many moral questions, it's incredible.

I wish his dream could have been realized the way he had intended and played out as he envisioned.

again, they bungled it by dragging out the first season.. no one could see what was coming.. the sex slave trade just killed the show... once they got into the depth of the show, it was too late..
I liked it after they put it into 3rd geAR..

Okay, I really don't get this. What would your Dollhouse show have been about? The one without the "slave trade", without the rich clients with their strange needs to fund the "public" aspect of the Dollhouse?

They're something about Joss' shows that make them so compelling. It's not just entertainment, it really makes you think, and wonder what would have happened next.

It will be sorely missed, just like Firefly, Angel, Buffy...

I am just glad that the show way able to wrap up the way it did. It sucked that we were robbed of so many episodes. I wanted to see how Alpha became one of the good guys, I would have loved to see the battle of the guys in a world that was falling apart, how Tony chose to be Victor and left Prya behind out of love...also what happened to Mr. Dominic? :sigh: Yeah Dollhouse you will be missed... :(

So far it isn't that great of a show. I keep watching because I like Joss Whedon's other stuff (especially Firefly) but this show is nothing special. Just finished watching episode 2.06 and the whole thing is just way too jumbled. I do like Olivia Williams though, and its nice to see Summer Glau for a few episodes.

I thought I would miss this show a lot more than I do.

I still get miffed whenever I think about Firefly, but Dollhouse? I just don't really care.

I watched 2.07 Meet Jane Doe the other day, that was some great acting by Olivia Williams. The rest of the episode was pretty average, but I can see how things are building up to the events in Epitaph 1.

the same with me. I really think Firefly could have at least four seasons, but dollhouse ... was a few episodes awesome but lot more episodes were meh...

Just finished watching the second season yesterday. I liked the build up to the conclusion but I thought the final 2 episodes could have been better.

A few things that bothered me:

1) Alpha is all of a sudden the good guy and no one has any problem with it? I feel like this requires at least some explanation

2) Topher is a genius and he can't figure out how to put a timer on the device so it won't have to be done manually. I understand sentimentally its because he felt responsible for everything and felt that it was the only way to go, but logically it doesn't make any sense.

3) What happened to those tech heads?

So many unanswered questions with the plot.

I liked Dollhouse alot, not Joss's best show by any means but I thought it was great and a lot better than most of the stuff that exists out there today.

Dollhouse was awesome because I wished it to be awesome. I think if I didn't already love most of the actors, and didn't know it was Whedon, I never would have stuck with it. Glad I did though, because season 2 progressively got better, and I felt like it ended with a bang.

This was a really good show. Very unfortunate that it was given the boot, however in saying that I thought they completed their storyline in a pretty complete way. Thankfully after watching the final ep I was able to get some closure in what I found to be an entertaining show. Its always nice when that happens.

Now just don't get me started on Las Vegas....

Dollhouse surprised me, it's a show that didn't showcase it's potential till later in the first season, the immortal life , rich society, multiple versions of people is just incredibly complex and season 2's driving force was interesting to see unfold.

While it may not have thoroughly been the best show around, some of the episodes were amazing, generally those ones involving Alpha or Bennet. I think the epitaph was a little unnecessary, it could have just been left at the end of season two possibly with some threads unfinished but the whole 3rd season (practically) crammed into one episode was a bit irking.

Huh? Epitaph Two was a direct sequel to Epitaph One, the last episode of season 1.

Indeed, Epitaph One was never aired (at least in the US) but was included on the Season One DVD.

It was sort of like SGU in a way it started out slow. So most casual viewers and ones that were not invested in Joss Whedon shows. Didn't stick with it. So when it really became great in the second season. Half it's fan base was already gone.

I believe there are going to be comics coming out that chronicle the survivors?
