Buffy The Vampire slayer and Firefly creator Joss Whedon crafts this science-fiction-themed television series concerning a highly-illegal, underground organization known as the Dollhouse that caters to the wealthy, powerful, and connected by leasing out 'Actives', people whose personalities have been wiped clean so they can serve whatever purpose the client demands. Echo (Eliza Dushku) is an 'Active'.
She doesn't just perform the role that she has been hired to play, but actually becomes it since she knows no other life than the one she is living in the moment. Actives can become whatever the client wants or needs - a lover, a best friend, a corporate negotiator, or even an assassin. Echo and fellow Actives such as Sierra (Dichen Lachman) receive their assignments from Adelle Dewitt (Olivia Williams), one of the leaders of the Dollhouse.
Upon completion of her mission, Echo always returns to the Dollhouse to have her thoughts, feelings, experiences, and knowledge erased by genius programmer Topher Brink (Fran Krantz) while her handler Boyd Langton (Hary Lennix) supervises the process. But the powers that be have caught wind of the Dollhouse, and with every tip he receives from Russian informant Lubov (Enver Gjokaj) FBI Agent Paul Ballard (Tahmoh Penikett) moves one step closer to the truth. But now, as Echo stops forgetting and her memories gradually begin to return, she becomes determined to solve the mystery of her secret-shrouded past. Features the complete first and second series of the show.

Dollhouse is another TV show of the brilliant director Joss Whedon. After Buffy, Angel and Firefly he takes up yet another topic. Are we permitted to delete someones personality to implement a new one that fits the needs and urges of a client? What about a persons soul? Where are the boundaries? It's a clever move, since as a producer you are able to pick up every topic you want, since you are free to create a new character every new episode. Call girl, negotiator, you name it. Unfortunately the show needs a few episodes to pick up the pace (that's why I can only grant 4 stars), but when it does, it's brilliant. It's a shame that another good idea has been shut down after only 2 seasons, but they are really worth watching! The Blu-ray quality is very good as well!
