I so want to support Joss Whedon and his projects, but after last week's episode...lame. It was such a cool concept - people, mainly women, get their memories wiped and then are programmed and re-programmed to fit certain profiles for the Dollhouse clientele. Its turned into soft porn. And my hubby can't stand looking at Eliza Dushku (the lead) "close your mouth!".

Bummed.

I've watched a couple and truthfully I dont get what the deal is with the chicks, are they like the chick in Fox's Terminator

No, the chick in Terminator is, well, a Terminator - skin on metal like Schwarzenegger.

Dollhouse - they are humans who have their memories wiped and then personalities shaped by different profiles and downloaded into their brains...kinda like the Matrix when they download the Kung-fu or how-to-fly a helicopter program? I was hoping that these women would be more like spies (aka Alias) then a glorified dating service.

I share your disappointment as do most of my friends. Not quite ready to completely give up on it yet... loyalty to Joss Whedon runs deep here.

I haven't watch last Friday's ep yet - the last one I saw was the back up singer ep. Which annoyed the crap out of me.

AND.... those girls were all so skinny I've developed a complex!! That new "doll" - Sierra or whatever her name is - her arms are gross skinny. I'm supposed to believe she can kick some ass? She'll snap in half!

I watched about 20 minutes and then realized it was a teenage boy fantasy. Programmable blow-up dolls. Not interested.

Right .. a dating service with chicks that get into weekly situations where they have to kick ass.
Well, I didn't know it was going to be a dating service!!

Though I did kinda like the one where she was the "dream date" for the guy who likes to take girls camping in the woods and then hunt them down with his compound bow. :rolleyes:
