Dollhouse is one of those shows that throws you directly into the action and you’re not quite sure what’s going on for a few minutes. And even after you think you’ve figured out what’s going on, something else is introduced that makes you rethink everything. It’s a very mystery-orientated show. The summary from IMDb says it better than I can;
The show follows an organization that employs mind-wiped humans known as Dolls who are implanted with false memories and skills for various missions and tasks. When they are not 'at work' they are living in a real life Dollhouse which gives the show the name. One of those mind-wiped humans, a young woman named Echo, is slowly starting to become aware of herself and what's going on - all the while somebody on the outside is trying to bring the Dollhouse down while getting closer to Echo - possibly not aware that she is one of the Dolls he is after.
Even after reading the summary, let me tell you that there is so much more to the show than that.
If you’re into sci-fi and you like to have shows where you need to keep track of details, this might be one that you would enjoy. It’s one of the shows that I’m incredibly happy I have on DVD (at least, I have season one)so that I can watch over again since I don’t believe that it’s playing in re-runs. I give it a 9/10. If you have a weekend to spare especially now that the weather isn’t all that nice, watching this entire series would be a great way to spend it if you so desired.
