Okay, I know the above picture is for the comic version of Buffy Season 8, but it still has Eliza Dushku (Faith/Echo) in it, so it still counts!
So, Joss Whedon has created a new series called Dollhouse. It's been in the works for a ridiculously long time, and I think they filmed some episodes over to make the studios happy. It's about these people called "Actives." Essentially, they're people who's minds have been erased and new personalities and abilities are put in there instead, to meet the needs of a client. It's a big corporation who runs the whole deal, and they have many Actives. Our main character is Echo (all the Actives have military alphabet designations). However, she's not like the other Actives--she may have something going on here. The main villain is a former Active named Alpha.
Alpha (who I think is being played by the guy who played Wash on Joss Whedon's previous cult show, Firefly) has somehow retained all the personalities and abilities. This makes him extremely dangerous, but probably extremely insane. This is one of the cooler ideas Joss has had....
I've watched the first couple of episodes aired, and I like it. It definitely has that Joss Whedon vibe to it...Hopefully it doesn't get cancelled.
Oh, and best headline ever (thanks RK): "Jonas Brothers concert film lacks dimension."
