Televisionary’s Dollhouse Script Review
Check out what Jace (aka Televisionary) has to say about his read-through of the Dollhouse pilot:
I am still trying to catch my breath.
I’m talking about my reaction last night after reading Joss Whedon’s brilliantly evocative script for his new seven-episode drama series for FOX, Dollhouse.
If there’s one thing that Dollhouse has been this development season in Hollywood, it’s been THE script to try to get your hands on. After weeks of conniving, begging, and bartering, I finally managed to get my greedy mitts on the script and hungrily devoured the 54-page script in about fifteen minutes, seemingly without pausing to breathe.
While I had extremely high expectations for Dollhouse (I always trust in the Joss), I was worried that, after all of the hype and hoopla, it wouldn’t quite live up to my preconceived notions about the project. I am happy to say that not only were those expectations matched but they were exceeded. This isn’t latter-day Alias by any stretch of the imagination: while their are still costume changes and choreographed fight sequences, it delves into bigger issues of morality and mortality and asks hard questions about the ethical ramifications of science and technology.
