Dollhouse is an intriguing, messed up, quirky, thought-provoking, series that's full of twists, mind benders, and a lot of creepy storylines. Yet it's funny and light-hearted most times. I did not really "enjoy" watching Dollhouse, but I was so fascinated and so taken by it that I had to watch it all. And I loved it, in an awkward way.


This show is what started my series-binche-watching-addiction. It's also the only series I ever watched more then once. Dollhouse is the best show ever, with the coolest ending to a series ever!


Episode 3 of season one had to be the worst TV show I've ever seen in my life! Devoid of any logic, bad acting and completely uninteresting, it must have been written by a 2 year-old. Stopped watching at this point. May return if nothing else to watch.


Joss Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jane Espenson, and Tim Minear is a great combination. If you like the past work of Joss Whedon and company then check this out. Just like Firefly, you might require about four episodes before you really know if this is for you. Understand the full potential wasn't achieved in the shy two seasons it was given.


Great show, It's nice it does not 'just stop' after two seasons; the story is rather complete. :)


The show is good, with a nice idea. We may say that Westworld is an upgrade to this show. I meanly watch the show because of Eliza Dushku too.


the end it's just not fair .. she should find her happy end with him great show :)


there are some really cool high concept stuff in the show but there is this overall lameness and predictability to it


I enjoyed the series. The writing was great, disappointed it was cancelled.


The concept of Dollhouse is incredibly offensive. People are programmed to act without their consent. Prior consent is completely irrelevant due to the fact that the person that gave consent no longer exists. Dolls are modern slaves and prostitutes. Disgusting.
