I see dead chicks
Watched Dollhouse this morning. In fact, just finished it a few minutes ago. (I would’ve watched last night, but I had a prior engagement with Skype and my writing group. Skype was being a complete asshole last night, too.) So, unfortunately I didn’t get to see the preview for next week’s episode. I hear there was Alan Tudyk present, so I’m super bummed about that.
Oh well, on to the episode. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but full, straight up recaps are getting fewer and farther between. Does anyone really mind that? At least I’m still writing about it, right? I don’t know, I just seem to suck at recaps as much as I suck at book reviews! Awesome.
Adele’s old friend had arranged prior to her death to have herself turned into an imprint. So she could come back after her death to solve her own murder. I don’t get why Adele didn’t already know that. How did she go about serving Margaret’s extreme paranoia without realizing the woman thought she would be murdered?
And how did Margaret think that she’d be offed by one of the help? Generally, the butler did not do it. Murder is too messy and personal, and the servants are kept at too far a distance, for the most part.
Topher kinda bugs me. I think they’re trying a little too hard to make him a little too sociopathic. (But in the genius way, not in the serial killer way. Although, if you want to think about it this way, he does kill people at the end of every engagement.) But then again, when he was goofing off with Sierra during his “diagnostic test”, he was incredibly sweet. I suppose we were supposed to take that juxtaposition to mean that he’s human after all? I don’t know, I still get shades of Warren, Andrew and Jonathan from him. Mostly Warren, actually.
Is there anyone in the employ of the Dollhouse that doesn’t occasionally partake of the services of the dolls? I suspect Boyd is the only one.
The mystery within the episode was fairly simple. Margaret goes to her own funeral, hangs out at her own house with her family, and realizes that she wasn’t as well-loved as she thought she was. This is the problem with going to your own funeral. You find out that no one sees you quite the same way you see yourself. You say you have a soft side, but that doesn’t mean anyone’s ever seen it.
The horses were pretty! Right? Anyone?
That dude who played Nicholas? Where have I seen him before?
I got not much else here. It was mostly filler, wasn’t it? What do y’all think?
