Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Add Dollhouse to the list of excellent TV shows cancelled far too soon. Of course, it's miraculous that Dollhouse made it to a second season at all. Television isn't generally receptive to complicated stories or moral ambiguity--and how else can you describe a series about people called "actives," whose minds are wiped clean so they can be imprinted with other personalities and rented out to the wealthy? As season 2 begins, former FBI agent Paul Ballard (Tahmoh Penikett, Battlestar Galactica) has joined the Dollhouse and become the handler for Echo (Eliza Dushku, Bring It On), the most popular active. But Ballard still hopes to bring the Dollhouse down, and when he discovers that Echo's mind is starting to accumulate a new, coherent personality, he keeps her secret and promises to help her.

Echo's developing self began as the season's dominant story, but halfway through the season creator Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) learned the show had been cancelled--so he decided to cram the events he'd planned for multiple seasons into the remaining episodes. The result is more like a zippy science-fiction novel than typical serial television. Some plot developments feel rushed, but overall the headlong pace revs up the excitement as the Dollhouse fights against its parent corporation and instigates what may be the end of civilization. The regular characters all develop in juicy ways and some actors from other Whedon series (like Firefly's Summer Glau and Angel's Alexis Denisof) get plum guest roles. The series has its weaknesses--some ideas seem clumsily grafted on from other science-fiction franchises--but the second season vastly improved upon the first, and Whedon's vivid characters and superb storytelling make Dollhouse a pleasure to watch. The DVD extras are substantive, particularly some deleted scenes that give additional heft to the season's developments. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

From creative mastermind Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) comes the stunning final season of this sexy thriller that that will reveal all the secrets and complete your collection! As Dollhouse continues to provide its elite clientele with "actives"--human beings imprinted with the personas of whomever the client wants them to be--its mind-altering technology spins dangerously out of control. Now, an unlikely alliance must attempt to destroy the sinister corporation behind the facade. And, as the lovely, lethal active Echo (Eliza Dushku) struggles with the memories of her past, she must unlock the deadly secret that will ultimately determine the fate of all mankind.

What is "Dollhouse?" It's a question that, at first, was not easy to answer. "Dollhouse" deals with an underground organization that wipes away someone's personality, leaving them in a mindless, childlike state - a doll. Then, whenever a client with enough money summons the Dollhouse's services, an Active is imprinted with a new personality, becoming whatever person the client desires. At the end of the engagement, the Active is wiped back into a doll, remembering nothing that's transpired.

At once a dark and disturbing show, "Dollhouse" was a difficult television show to watch because it challenged its viewers, it questioned its viewers: is it possible to erase someone's soul? Is it morally right to have such technology? Is it human nature to abuse this technology? If the dolls are all ostensibly volunteers, is there such a thing as voluntary servitude or are the engagements prostitution of a most profoundly perverted nature? In a world of mindless reality shows, it's easy to see why "Dollhouse" never garnered a large viewing audience.

The first season of "Dollhouse" led the viewer on a fascinating journey as Echo (Eliza Dushku), one of the most popular Actives, began to wake up within her doll state, developing a personality immune to the mental tampering of the Dollhouse, creating herself as a person. After the climactic season finale, "Omega," FOX surprisingly renewed "Dollhouse" for a second season. It was in this second and ultimately final season that "Dollhouse" truly became one of creator Joss Whedon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel," "Firefly/Serenity")'s finest works.

Plunging back into Echo's world, we learn that Echo is no longer quiet and quiescent. She knows who she is. She is a person.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Most Underrated Series of All Time January 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can sit here and sing praises about this show but in the end it still won't matter, it won't bring the show back. Bottom-line is that this show accomplished more than any other shows will in five seasons and they did it with only 26 episodes.

Season 2 is one of the finest, best written and planned out seasons seen on television in a long time. The main plot sees Echo (Eliza Dushku) with the ability to maintain her various imprints (personas) after the events of season one, and that further developed into her being able to access those imprints at will turning her into nothing short of a super hero with advanced skills as she plots to take down the dollhouse as well as it's evil founder - Rossam corporation.

As the season progresses, we learn not only of how Echo/ Caroline come to be in the dollhouse but were presented with back stories of Victor and Sierra. Each was given an entire episode where they took the lead away from Echo as the writers tied up loose ends and allowed for further character developments.

Characters like boss lady Adelle Dewitt as well as in-house genius programmer Topher Brink were given opportunities to develop as well in the midst of the massive main plot, as the earlier struggles between good and evil while the latter found love in another evil genius.

One important thing to know for casual viewers is that season 2 does take into account, in fact to a large extend the events that happened in the unaired 13th episode of season 1 "Epitaph One". It is evident that you watch that episode first before starting season 2, especially true for the series finale.

Flash forward scenes of the future in "Epitaph One" comes to play here in season 2, it is extremely interesting and intriguing to watch how those events come to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another outstanding sci-fi series sent to an early death February 11, 2010
Format:DVD
Much like Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles earlier in the year, 2009 sees another outstanding television series put to an untimely death. And both were on Fox. First, I have to admit I was not much of fan of Joss Whedon's other series (Buffy, Angel, and Firefly), but Dollhouse was nothing short of spectacular. It was a brilliant concept with intense, efficient writing and great character development. Another reviewer hit it on the head saying this show packed more in 26 total episodes than most series do over their lifetimes. Dollhouse is one of the great sci-fi shows of all time. It amazes me how much action, plot, intensity, and growth were packed into such a short series. It's one of the greatest shows that nobody watched. What a shame. And thus as usual we are left with plenty of vanilla shows about doctors, cops, and lawyers. If's a show is intelligent, creative, and original, it doesn't stand a chance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Season 2 wraps up loose ends February 10, 2010
By Lola
Format:DVD
While the final episode in the series, "Epitaph 2", addresses the events and issues raised in the final DVD episode of Season 1 ("Epitaph One"), many sacrifices to the show's artistic integrity had to (unfortunately) be made. This was the right choice for the show: to end with a plot that makes sense. But, it's likely that more seasons would have been required to flesh out this plot outline with a style, finesse, emotional impact, and insight that simply couldn't be done on this short timeline, certainly not with an eye toward care for the characters or themes we'd seen in the first season. For those who loved season 1, this season was certainly entertaining, but the visions for potential greatness you may have had for season 2 are unlikely to be borne out. (That being said, there were small moments that were incredible - anything involving Amy Acker in the beginning of the season, for example!) The pacing of this season was reminiscent of the final season of ALIAS - hurried and plot-driven. I'm glad that the season was made to wrap up loose ends, but the heart of this series will always remain with the second half of Season 1.

Note: this review is for the show itself, will update review to include product specifics once it is released.

Series Finale Was Awesome!
Oh, it was very rushed, but when you consider the series finales of other shows -- particularly any as challenging or, well, odd, as Dollhouse -- "Epitaph Two" was a very generous finale in that it wrapped everything up, provided closure for all the characters, and yet still left the... Read More

Still no release date?
Not only is there still no release date... but now Amazon requires that I "confirm" that I still want it (even though I already pre-ordered it)... and by confirming, it updates the pre-order price to a few $$ more than what the original pre-order was. This is the third time I've... Read More

Is there closure?
There is actually two closing points... one closing Season 1's timeline and one closing the timeline followed in the bonus episode from the season 1 set. Paired with the bonus episode, the whole storyline gets enough closure.

Both Seasons are region free and have French subtitles, and yes I do own both seasons.
