The review I read this a.m. says this week’s ep is so-so, but next week’s kicks ass.
Coincidentally, I caught Serenity on SciFi last night.
At this point, JW has earned my attention, and until he proves otherwise, I imagine I’ll watch pretty much anything he puts on TV, screen, or the net.
Too bad they’re doing the wrong show. With a built-in fanatic audience this is the perfect time to launch a Faith series. But it’s too early in Joss’s career. He’s young and still trying to prove he’s not a one trick pony. Eventually, when he gets older and hungrier, he’ll go back to the well. But too bad he’s missing a opportunity now. He’s already got Eliza…and Alexis Denisof seems to be out-of-work currently…
Same attitude here. Whedon is on my very short list of people where I will watch anything they put out. No matter how retarded it sounds I’ll still watch it. Hell, I’d probably watch gay porn if Whedon wrote and directed it.
I missed the first half of the episode. I’m typing this just after scene in which Echo’s personality was about the be wiped. The dialog made it seem like she was aware that this was going to happen. Are we to believe that these “dolls” are aware of what is done to their memories, and that they don’t have a problem with it?
hobscrk777, they seem to have some awareness of ‘going in for treatment’ as a part of their lives, so they don’t question it, but don’t realize that it involves wiping their memories. At the start Echo went for a treatment session after spending a weekend with a great guy, and was obsessing about whether she should call him back right after treatment or if it’d seem clingy.
I love this, especially the end. Alpha, presumably, would be the first Active, by the naming system - so has he gone rogue? Was that him, watching pre-Echo’s yearbook video thingee surrounded by the slaughtered bodies?
And - it has been WAY too long since I’ve seen the Mutant Enemy mascot for a new project on broadcast TV. Hope the fox doesn’t chase him away again.
He put a girl in a refrigerator.
Not very good, really. I might give it a try next week but the premise was oddly Aaron Spelling with none of the stuff I enjoy about Joss Whedon’s shows when I see them.
