So I'm just gonna get it off my chest.

I like Eliza Dushku. I like Joss Whedon.

I really don't like Dollhouse. I don't think they hit what they were trying for, and I find the power dynamics at best annoying, and at worst really, really disturbing. I don't enjoy it when even the "good guys" are domineering daddy's who want to save the innocent little girl, and I'm just supposed to sit there week after week and watch most of the main characters smile eerily before getting programmed to go get abused again.

I'm disappointed by it, and I went from wanting to know how it was going to be resolved in a manner that would make me feel at ALL like we hadn't just watched two seasons worth of rape fantasies, to not being comfortable watching it anymore at all.

No offense is meant to those who do enjoy it, this is just my opinion. I'm definitely not wasting more of my time on a show that makes me cringe, though.
