New Dollhouse Trailer
Joss Whedon’s new show, Dollhouse, has been having a few small issues recently, namely reshooting the pilot and rearranging the air dates of episodes, but that hasn’t stopped them from releasing a new trailer for the show:
I wonder how much the show will focus on the ‘personality of the week’ aspect versus the ‘soul underlying it all’ aspect they touch on here. I like the premise here, sort of a Kiln People vibe, although with one ‘blank’ being overwritten continuously instead of a bunch of copies being made. Delving into the lives of the people who would make the conscious choice to become a ‘rewritable’ personality holds some interesting promise, but even more interesting, and what the show may be going as hinted in the trailer, is what happens if part of the personality makes through each wipe? What type of person would they become? How would they cope? Which actually sounds like My Own Worst Enemy, but probably written better. And I hope the SF elements are there from the start, and played up, so all the SF haters can see just how good SF can be (I’m looking at you, ‘SF in LOST?!’ haters).
I can’t say that I am psyched up for the show, but I am intrigued. And since it’s Fox pairing with Whedon again, who knows how much jerking around the show will have to endure. But set your DVRs for January when the show debuts.
