and when he was bad
I do not know what to think of Dollhouse. I do think after this last episode, Joss needs to stick to plot constructing and not actual dialogue writing. We didn't pay attention to the credits, so during the awful post-sex banter, D said, "Ugh, who wrote this?" And I said, "I know! It's like Joss at his worst."

And sure enough. I mean, it was "A Hole in the World" bad.

The "man on the street" segments were also terrible, I think a combination of writing/acting/directing. They didn't feel authentic at all. It was totally actors reading lines. Not for a second did I believe these were real reactions of real people. I know, it's a show and of course it's actors reading lines, but I shouldn't be taken out of the show by that. Not one of them felt like a real person. They were just all so stagey.

I did love "Porn!" but that was all in Eliza's delivery.

Are they making things too convoluted, though, so it's all just going to be a big contradictory mess at some point?

I've never had a liking for Eliza Dushku (which from what I can see is the reason why some people tune into the show) especially after witnessing the crapfest that was 'Tru Calling', so I have no desire to see Dollhouse even though I want to know what the crappy dialogue was, if only because I am prejudiced. Ugh.

Not even the dolls?

Well knowing it's Joss, it will probably be a mess in the long run. That is if the show even makes it to 13 episodes.
And I laughed seeing your post title, seriously I love these little references to the show.

There has never been a more apt verse to describe Joss: when he was good, he was very very good, and when he was bad he was horrid.

I love Eliza. I don't know why. I'll watch Bring It On every time it comes on TV. I'll even watch Tru Calling reruns. I know it's crappy, but I love her. In a total hetero girlcrush way. I just think she's gorgeous and fun.

It is going to be a mess. I'll stick with it, but... yeah. We'll see.
