recap the second… kinda
Ok, guys and dolls, this one is going to be more of a reaction than a true recap. because at this point, i know y’all have seen it, and quite frankly i don’t feel like watching it a second time to do the recap.
that’s basically what it boils down to for me. it was a weird episode.
i kinda feel like they’re trying to do way much more than they should be at this point in the series. i mean, i’m thoroughly convinced that, at the very least Echo will recover her full memory at some point, through some other glitch, but i kinda feel like this has hamstrung them at least a little bit. i imagine that this is being saved for the series season finale when Alpha shows up. Because that much is clear. (And check out these pics from io9 and rejoice. REJOICE i say, for Alan Tudyk is indeed Alpha!)
and Caroline? yeah…. i don’t like her. she has that hero complex that i generally find incredibly grating and not at all realistic in a tv character. i think i am more of an anti-hero kind of girl. i do, however, find myself intrigued by the other characters. much more so than Echo herself, I think. Whether this is a testament to Eliza’s actressin’ or to my own predilections for secondary characters, I couldn’t tell you. but i heart Victor, for sure. I’m liking Sierra more and more as we go along. And i just want to give Mellie/November a hug and a cupcake.
let’s see… i did take a few notes as I was watching the ep. First off, yay more half nakey Helo Ballard. he has a weird dream life, but i really don’t think we had to see him dream about sexing up Caroline while Mellie cries at him in the background. because yeah, duh, we all already knew that he wants to save Caroline and fuck her, but he digs Mellie too, because she’s sweet and obviously completely programmed to be in love with him and needs to be taken care of. so, really? what point did that serve?
have i mentioned i heart Victor? oh, ok. moving on then.
i don’t think i really understand what the point of this episode was. there doesn’t seem to be any kind of canon established here, or forward momentum as far as characters go. yeah, Sierra and Victor got to snog, everyone got their closure, i got to see Darian Fawkes, and all was right in the Dollhouse… but… I don’t know. I’m just meh about the whole thing. i’m no more interested than i was after the last couple of episodes. i’m not really any less interested either, but still.
i dunno. what do you guys think?
