Dollhouse Improves

I was pretty hard on Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse initially. Some readers said I needed to give it a chance, and, even if they hadn’t, I was going to anyway. One story I heard from several sources was that the suits at Fox insisted on imposing their vision for the first few episodes because they didn’t think viewers would get it. Well, one can only assume these were the same suits whose criminal idiocy caused the cancellation of Firefly. Anyway, now the apparent reign of the suits is over, it’s worth noting that the most recent episode of Dollhouse — “Man in the Street” — was actually, you know, good. Not great. But legitimately entertaining. Let’s hope the trend line continues.
