Grrrr arrrrghhhh! I wish I could be one of those reviewers that has lots of insight. Or at least someone who can recap an episode of Dollhouse and make it exciting. I don’t want to just keep saying rah, rah, rah, sis boom bam, we love Joss, he’s our man. I just can’t seem to help myself.
Part of the reason that I wish I could make my reviews more exciting is because more people should be watching this show. The ratings should be double what they are, and not just because last night’s episode, “Stage Fright,” was written by Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen of Dr. Horrible fame. You know I’m not going to spoil you, cause people don’t always like that, but I think this was the best episode yet.
First of all, we found out a couple of things we didn’t know before that are very interesting and make me want to know what else we haven’t been told. We also got to hear Eliza sing and she was pretty good. I’m not saying she’s Whitney or Aretha (and as any good American Idol fan knows, you shouldn’t try to sing like them anyway), but her voice was clear and strong and pleasant. And she can carry a tune.
Other encouraging news from a recent Eliza Dushku interview for “The Onion” is that the network backs off soon and give Joss the freedom he needs to really be himself. This is how Eliza puts it: ” . . . Joss’ first script that he did after the pilot is number six … and it is just unbelievable. From that point on, the world unfolds in Joss’ way, with Joss’ speed, and it’s really remarkable.” That’s what I’m waiting for, I want to see where Joss is going and what he’s doing. Because that’s all part of the process. I’m starting to fall in love and this courtship phase is really the best part.
We’re just getting to know each other, Dollhouse and I, but I truly believe that this is the start of a beautiful relationship.
