Fox Hypes Up Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse
Feeling quite guilty that I haven’t come across the Dollhouse trailer until now, I felt like I should make up for it by doing Fox a favor and spreading the love!
The trailer for this fall’s sci-fi drama (which you can check out after the jump) has been out and about on YouTube and select TV spots, getting many pretty excited about its premiere. After all, it is Joss Whedon’s first series since Firefly, which went off the air back in 2003 (surprisingly with the same network his new show is on).
Dollhouse, starring former Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS) favorite Eliza Dushku, focuses on a clandestine, illegal operation carried out by agents who have their memories and personalities completely erased after each mission. Dushku plays Echo, one operative who slowly starts to learn more and more about where she works over time—she becomes a known flaw in the system, if you will.
The series premieres in January on Fox, right before 24 in the Monday 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT spot.
As a hardcore BTVS fan, I will be flat-out honest about the trailer: it didn’t impress me. Perhaps it was Eliza’s lack of acting. Perhaps it was just the trailer’s horrible graphics (as a graphic designer, I get picky with those things!). To me, I didn’t find the concept as promising as Firefly, but Joss Whedon is more than likely to prove me wrong. Hey, it’s happened before.
