There's A Clip From Joss Whedon's DOLLHOUSE Online...

Merrick here...
Entertainment Weekly's posted a clip from Joss Whedon's DOLLHOUSE.
In Dollhouse, Eliza Dushku plays a young woman named Echo, a member of a group of people known as "Actives" or "Dolls." The Dolls have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas, including memory, muscle memory, skills, and language, for different assignments. They're then hired out for particular jobs, crimes, fantasies, and occasional good deeds.
...explains THIS Wiki entry.


Hate me if you must, but this clip's dialogue feels really stilted to me & its pacing totally off. This production of DOLLHOUSE has been a bit beleaguered to date. A new first episode was shot for thw series (reportedly Whedon's idea) - with the original first episode being repurposed as episode 2. The original late-Summer/early Fall launch of the show was pushed to mid-season (details HERE), and the production shut down for two weeks in September to allow Whedon time to regroup/rework the scripting of episodes. To make matters worse, it's slated to premiere in a much-dreaded Friday night time slot, usually seen as something of a killing ground for television series. From what I'm seeing here, maybe they still haven't shaken out all the kinks? What do you think?
