Dollhouse: ep 2x9/2x10-Stop Loss&The Attic Grading,Comments SPOILERS!



This is the last two-parter of Dollhouse for December. Fox hasn't as of yet said when the last three episodes will air but have promised to air them. I will post when I know unless someone beats me to that.

"Stop-Loss/The Attic" Season 2 Episode 9 and 10 - As his contract with the Dollhouse expires, Victor is released back into the world, where his military past threatens his future with Sierra. Meanwhile, Echo is deemed too dangerous and is sent into her worst nightmare in the all-new "Stop-Loss/The Attic" episode of DOLLHOUSE airing Friday, Dec. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Cast:
Eliza Dushku as Echo
Tahmoh Penikett as Paul Ballard
Olivia Williams as Adelle DeWitt
Harry Lennix as Boyd Langton
Fran Kranz as Topher Brink
Enver Gjokaj as Victor
Dichen Lachman as Sierra

Guest Cast:
Liza Lapira as Ivy
Michael Kin as Hagan
Reed Diamond as Laurence Dominic
Vincent Ventresca as Nolan Kinnard
Adam Godley as Clyde Randolph
Tzi Ma as Matsu
Keir Thirus as Myers









Victor's contract is up?! I'd wager originally this would go another way. Although maybe not. The plan could've been to release a doll every season. November in S1, Victor in S2 and so forth. Now though this is more timely knowing we only have 3 episodes to go.

Check back later for comments from our 'active' participants!

Three more after tonight? That's good to know. I was going to ask if anyone knew, and clearly, you did.

This was A+ Joss Whedon material. Might've known that Dollhouse would be "at it's best" now that it's almost over.

From what I understand, it's supposed to be the nights of January 8th, 15th and the 22nd, which would mean the remaining episodes would begin precisely one night after the college football postseason has come to a close.

This is correct from the last known dates, the series will resume in January. As for tonight's episodes, I thought they were fantastic, an love the mini arcs they made and looking forward to the rest. I wish they were a little more clear on the dates of things (I'm trying to work on something for the Dollhouse Wiki), but overall it's good. Also about time we got the name of Victor's original personality.

For me, "The Attic" felt way too much like a a ripoff of Buffy's "Restless". Hell, I kept waiting for the cheese man to show up somewhere after a while.

Yeah, definitely A+ material. I thought that the first ten minutes of Stop Loss were particularly great, with Adelle's final tryst with Viktor and then Viktor being set free from the DH and not knowing what to do. Adelle was definitely rocking the Darth Vader vibe during her entrence into the last scene.

Loved the look inside the attic and the return of Mr. Dominec. Really wish we'd have more episodes to explore this war on Rossum.

Speaking of Darth Vader, loved Topher's joke to his assistant (still can't remember her name) that Vader only killed lieutenants and not stormtroopers.

Topher's assistant (or gofer' as he treats her) is named Ivy.

Christmas Jewel (love the name, btw), I agree with your post, especially considering a semi related moment in "The Attic" with Echo.

Yep. "The Attic" was way too derivative of several other TV series and movies, which handled the same concepts much better. Not only did it pale in comparison as a 'dream' episode to "Restless", it was also at times an inferior rip-off of "The Cell" and the whole concept of the Borg from TNG.

I've been a strong supporter of "Dollhouse" since "Man on the Street". From that episode to episode 12 of season 1 was an amazing run, but the show has been pretty inconsistent since. I think now is when I finally jump off the bandwagon. I'll watch the remaining episodes, but I'm no longer very sad about the show getting axed. It's getting way too bogged down in convoluted plot machinations instead of giving us more of the great character stuff that made me a fan of the show in the first place.
