I think this has to be one of the best eps of both series.
I do think think Eliza acting is not has good has rest of the cast.
I think she's good. But she is outshined by the guy who plays Victor, I don't know where they found him but he deserves more work.

Re: Dollhouse 2x4 Belonging Grade-Discuss-Commentary **SPOILERS**

I'll go one better than some of the other posters here and say that this episode is BETTER than "Epitaph One." It's breathless, brutal, heartbreaking, with style up the ying-yang.

It has converted me. I used to enjoy the show but was resigned to its eventual cancellation. Now, I say, "NO!" This show must continue! What must I do?!

Can we just have Sierra use her Australian accent all the time. With an American accent, she's just another skinny girl. With an Australian accent...

incredibly well-acted by all the actors.
Notice that the episode has minimal Echo & zero Ballard. I don't mean to keep harping on the issue but it's just frustrating that the lead actress on this otherwise brilliant show is the worst thing about it. (It's also uncharacteristic to have such uneven acting on a Joss Whedon show. His actors are usually uniformly excellent.)

Well directed by Jonathan Frakes.
Amen! This is the most stylish episode the show has ever done. I especially loved the shot towards the beginning of Topher through the magnifying glass.

This episode was also written by the same people that wrote "Epitaph One", which would explain why it was so good.
That would be Mr. & Mrs. Jed Whedon. They really seem to have the golden touch on this show. In addition to this episode & "Epitaph One," they also wrote "Stage Fright," one of the few decent mission-of-the-week episodes from last season. When they write, the show pops with a brutal ingenuity that is sadly missing from too many episodes.

I guess the lesson here is: Sometimes nepotism works.

Overnights are in: Dollhouse (Viewers: #4, 2.15 million; A18-49: #4, 0.9/ 3) So Dollhouse this year has been 2.56 > 2.09 > 2.25 > 2.15.
You know all things considered I would call that a win.
I honestly was expecting a bigger drop coming back from the MLB break of last week. Hopefully the TIVO/DVR ratings are as strong from the prior weeks and that get the episode an overall 3.25 or so.

My pipedream would be that we are all talking this up at other sites we visit, that the reaction to this episode is shared elsewhere. That all this positive buzz somehow builds and finds people catching up via Netflix, buying it or other and viewing the 4eps available at Fox.com. It would not be hard to catch up on 16 episodes in November even with the Holiday. Then that somehow the genre gods grant the double header deubt on Dec.4 with a significant boost in viewers.

Yeah, really. To keep up this level of online activity at more than just TrekBBS would leave me no time for friends, dating, productive work...

You guys are right. What other sites?
For real though I do spend a marginal amount of time other places and lately I'm talking up DH when and where a thread may have an avenue to do so.

Excellent.

Probably the best episode of the series.

The scene where Topher was cutting up the body was very well done. Frakes did a great job.

Glad to see Big Hottie will be back in December.

Quick question - maybe someone already asked/answered and I missed it. At the end, Echo had a security access card. Did Boyd give it to her?

Yes.

She was talking about a "storm coming" to Boyd earlier in the episode.

Given what we know from 'Epitaph One' about Boyd's future. Could the events of this episode be the reason he's on the run? What if Rossum found out about his involvement with the disappearance of one of their people.

I would have to say that even if that wasn't the original plan, it likely is now with cancellation (or non-renewal) imminent. I imagine they're going to tie up most of the loose ends leading to Epitaph Two.

I gotta find this damned "Epitath One".

Is it on a DVD release?
