Dollhouse: This Is Starting to Be a Problem

by on Oct.03, 2009, under television

Two episodes now with no mention at all of the future world of Epitaph One. It’s almost as if Whedon & Co. no longer have any intention of going there in what is looking more and more like the last 13 episodes this show will ever have. That’s a problem mainly because the weekly standalone episodes don’t work and have never really worked—and what’s more, we’re seeing almost no Enver Gjokaj and precious little Dichen Lachman. I don’t want to watch this show, and I don’t care about Alexis Denisof’s marginal Senator. I want to watch the better show promised by the second half of last season and especially the unaired final episode. What gives here?

    Joss has something up his sleeve. From this interview:

    Alyssa: Will we see an expansion of the world that Dollhouse is set in, beyond the house itself? I know you’ve been asked how viewers are supposed to get attached to Echo when she’s a different person every episode, but what role does setting play in grounding the show?

    Whedon: The world will expand. Oh holy boy will the world expand. And then, unless our ratings tick up a bit, it will very suddenly contract.
