Dollhouse is (or rather was) a Joss Whedon science fiction show, starring some of his usual actors and a few others, such as: Eliza Dushku, Tahmoh Penikett, Fran Kranz, Reed Diamond, Amy Acker and Olivia Williams. It only aired from early 2009 to January 2010 and therefore got cancelled after only 2 seasons. Having been one of my most beloved shows of all time; I was devastated that they got rid of it so fast, even though they made the effort to give it some sort of resolution.
If you haven’t seen it while it was on, here a short summary of what the show is about: The show revolves around an underground organisation called “Dollhouse”. They operate all around the globe and have the technology to program people with temporary skills, personality traits and memories. These people are called Actives or Dolls and can be rented by certain powerful and rich individuals. As the storyline continues it particularly follows one of the Dolls named Echo, played by Eliza Dushku. Everything changes when you notice how Echo gets more and more self aware and how she remembers things she shouldn’t.
Even though the second season certainly wasn’t as spectacular as the first one, it is still a fun and cool show to watch. I can really recommend this show a lot and hope that I have convinced you to at least try to watch it.
I am still mad that this one got cancelled! The show was a romanitc/comedy/drama cw show, starring: Jaime Murray, Kristoffer Polaha, Autumn Reeser, Christine Lakin and Robert Baker. They only showed 8 episodes and left me desperate to know what was about to happen next, by ending it with a cliff hanger.
I thought this show was brilliant, because it was about the Valentines – a family that lived among humans, but that actually was a bunch of Greek gods and godesses (e.g. Aphrodite, Eros, Ares, Hercules, etc.). Of course they must keep their true identities hidden, yet they still have to try and bring lovers and desperate soulmates together. In modern times their matchmaking skills are a bit rusty, but if they can’t fulfill their purpose they will become mortal. So, what do they do? They seek help from the cheesy, romantic novelist Kate Providence.
The show is extremly hilarious, but somehow sweet and smart at the same time. I thought is was a great new take on the whole Greek mythology thing and I even brushed up on some of the Greek myths I read in school because of it. Again, I would really recommend this show, if it wasn’t for the big cliff hanger at the end. I am furious! They should have at least shown a proper ending for it!
Have you watched these shows? Would you like to see more of them as well or are you glad they got cancelled?
