Positively Positive Review – Dollhouse: The Hollow Men

I often tell people that one of my biggest pet peeves is being able to predict what is going to happen next when watching tv or movies. It’s one of the reasons I’m a huge spoiler-phobe. I mean if I already know what’s going to happen, what is the point in watching, right?

When I watched this week’s episode of Dollhouse, I was so confused I barely knew what the heck was going on for most of it. Rather than being upset by this, I loved it. I just had to trust in Joss Whedon and let myself be taken along for the ride, and what a ride it was. Throughout the episode I had no idea who was in which body, who was pretending to be someone else and who was going to die.

Now THAT is some great television… least for me.

It breaks my heart to know that this show is coming to an end though I do feel a little responsible. After all, I didn’t immediately warm to the show and even missed some episodes from season 1. A problem I am remedying this week by renting it so that I can see them all before the finale. I almost didn’t even bother to write this review but after finishing the episode, I just had to sit down and talk about it. There is something about Joss’s shows that do that to me. From Buffy to Angel to Firefly, all of them made me think. Dollhouse is no different.

The other thing I just had to say after watching last night’s episode is that Enver Gjokaj is a freaking amazing, mind-blowingly awesome, acting genius. While all of the actors of this show have been fantastic, especially those playing dolls snapping in and out of different characters, Enver takes my breath away. Watching him become Topher again and nailing everything about the man, from his mannerisms to his absolute spot-on voice, I could barely tell his performance apart from Fran Kranz’ original.

Overall another episode that makes me nearly weep with the idea that this show is ending much too soon.

    the next/last ep is a sequel of a season 1 ep (that’s only on the DVD), Epitaph One. it has Felicia Day from Dr. Horrible… ^_^

    Yeah I heard about that. I’m excited because I did actually get to see Epitaph One at a friend’s party last year. So it looks like it will be great.
