Movie Mondays: Dollhouse

Today's movie isn't actually a movie, it's a tv show. A brilliant and captivating tv show that sadly only ran for two seasons. This show is called Dollhouse. It stars Eliza Dushku and is written by Joss Whedon, the creator of Firefly, Serenity, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I can't fathom why the show only got two seasons, because in my opinion it's way more interesting than most of the hour long dramas out there right now. The show explores an underground business called "The Dollhouse", which rents out "actives" (people who have been stripped of their original personality and can be imprinted with others) for a high price. In particular, an active named Echo (Eliza Dushku) is followed on her numerous engagements- which range from romantic encounters to top secret museum robberies. Echo is different from the other actives though- after a while, she starts to have memories of her engagements, even after she has been stripped of the different personalities.

This show is just amazing. Eliza Dushku is an amazing actress, the characters are so well-developed and interesting... and the overall concept behind the show is so interesting. The first season is available to stream on netflix, but the second season is not. You will want to watch them both though, believe me. It's worth renting. Here's a trailer:

seriously, watch this! It is soooooo, sooo good! enjoy :)

happy monday!
