Well, last night's episode of Dollhouse entitled "Briar Rose" was obviously outstanding. Poor Victor! That was hard core. Enver Gjokaj as Victor is super-duper talented (Ryan calls him fake Delouise..ha!) His acting in the "Victor's been imprinted with Dominic" scene was fantastic. But it was Alan Tudyk that stole the gorram show and having been spoiled that he was Alpha really didn't ruin it at all. This Mickey and Mallory thing they have cooked up for next week looks intriguing. If we could just get that last episode....
Which brings me to: I guess Fox has decided that next week's up is truly the finale, no changing their minds. In saying that, the jig is definitely up when it comes to "Finale Gate". I didn't realize the Minear wrote/directed ep 12 and the Whedon clan wrote 13 w Joss directing. I'm sorry but that is super telling. That mixed with the Felicia Day announcement at the Apple store has completely closed this case for me.
Last night's ratings? They were a little better and a little worse at the same time. Probably anything other than "amazingly better" won't help at this point. Hitfix.com says:
"While the Joss Whedon's drama's overall viewership was up slightly to an estimated 3.09 million (it fell just below 3 million last week), the rating in the 18-49 demo was down to a 1.1 and other young demos were also down. "Dollhouse," which has its season finale next Friday, at least beat The CW's "America's Next Top Model" repeat."
So, moving on to the Death Watch. 1 week to go but I guess we really won't have an answer to this until May 18th, when Fox will make announcements. So we'll keep the Death Watch open, but what in the shire is up with that poll on the right? Why has someone not died on Dollhouse yet? Perhaps Whedon feels he's becoming predictable after Penny's death in Dr. H, so maybe he feels a bigger shocker would be not to kill anyone at all!
