5.0 out of 5 stars Another outstanding sci-fi series sent to an early death, February 11, 2010
This review is from: Dollhouse: Season 2 (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.

I agree with what you said, except for one thing- I truly don't think they count viewers who watch online, or DVR to watch later. Dollhouse (and Firefly) had HUGE followings, but let's face it- either you were young enough to be going OUT on Friday night or you were parents getting your kids in bed. It's a terribly biased way of counting viewership.

I believe that the second season of Dollhouse (especially "The Attic") was the best of the best. EVER.

Fox has done its viewers a disservice, yet again- that's a shock.

I have not bought the DVD so cannot comment on that but did watch the series while it aired.
Dollhouse was disturbing at times with its core concept but the characters kept growing and the show evolved into something special.
I was happy that the show had a heads up about cancellation and had the time to bring some closure.
Agree that The Sarah Connor Chronicles cancellation was a huge disappointment. Too bad it didn't have the chance to bring closure.
