Epitaph One: Dollhouse Review (spoilers)

I don’t understand my blogging habits anymore. I have thoughts, and half composed posts. Big events, blog-storms, and repulsive media trials come and go, but I just don’t prioritise writing them. But then comes a new episode of a Joss … Continue reading

Omega: the semi-finale – Dollhouse review

While I was watching Omega I enjoyed it quite a lot. The pacing was good, and the dialogue was great – at times it was fantastic. But at the end, with the montage and music, I felt nothing. And when … Continue reading

Briar Rose: Dollhouse Review

I don’t like the first part of two-part episodes. It’s fine when you’re watching them on DVD (unless it’s late and you know you shouldn’t watch another one, but you do it anyway and then it turns out to be … Continue reading

Go watch, if you’re inclined, but be aware that it could be triggery. C&I mentioned in her post that the vid author warned [...] Continue reading

Dollhouse Review: A Spy in the House of Love (now with added stop-watch action)

That was Nifty. So nifty that, for the first time, my review involved a stop watch. Be warned, I’m getting even geekier as time progresses. It’s so frustrating that just as the show is getting even more mindblowingly awesome Fox … Continue reading

Needs: Dollhouse review episode 8

I’ve been meaning to thank everyone for the nice comments on my Dollhouse reviews. Particularly thanks to Felicity, who said: For some reason I can barely fathom, Alas’s is the only Dollhouse response I like reading. Perhaps it has the … Continue reading

Dollhouse Review: Episode 7 'Echoes'

When I watched the preview for ‘Echoes’ the first thing I said was “Oh God, I hope they don’t turn Caroline into an animal rights activist. I liked Caroline.” This clearly says more about my issues than it does about … Continue reading
