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.
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

Dollhouse is deliciously screwed up. After learning the plot, I was hesitant -- it took me over a year to start watching it. However, I was hooked immediately. Read morePublished 1 day ago by E. E. Rock
Really wish that this TV series would have continued for more seasons. Liked Eliza in this series more than in Buffy.Published 1 day ago by music buff
Season 2 sort of lost it's way, and I was lost much of the time. Liked Season 1 a lot better. Olivia Williams was outstanding in both seasons.Published 2 days ago by Pat Houston
Good concept and storyline. Little extended in areas and slightly far fetched at times. Good acting and nice amount of twists in plot.Published 2 days ago by Megan Owen

|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.

|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

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

Hope this is of any help to you.
