Take Your Dolls and Go Home

I'm finished with Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse".

Friday's episode was like a bad combination of a mediocre installment of "Quantum Leap" and "The Bodyguard" (a lame offering from Costner). Not only was it boring and uninspired, it was downright annoying. Nothing could make me want to turn the channel faster than a couple of 20-something characters strutting around congratulating themselves on how cool they are and letting their egos explode during their argument near the end.

The one scene in the episode that had the potential to redeem it was the confrontation between the security chief and the lead programmer of the Dollhouse (whatever the company is called, I can't be bothered to remember or even check) about Echo going off-track, but it felt forced and ultimately fell flat.

"Dollhouse" is now 0-for-3, and I've got better things to do on a Friday night than sit around hoping it'll get better and be consistently disappointed.
