It's a good basic idea, though. The lead character should have been some big, beefy guy who volunteers for the Dollhouse because he's a vicious psychotic killer and the Dollhouse beats lethal injection. That way we aren't subject to Whedon's female-victim fetishizing because nobody's going to get weepy about a psychotic killer who looks more like Vin Diesel than Eliza Dushku.
Well, that plotline is in there, although so far we haven't seen enough of Alpha to really judge how interesting he is.
