I was hesitant to start watching this series. I am a fan of Firefly (and to a lesser extent Buffy and Angel) but I didn't find the premise to be that intriguing. What is so interesting about hi-tech call girls (and boys)? I am pleased to say that I was wrong. Not only are the actives used for far more than mere companionship but there is a compelling complexity to the series without it being unfathomable. Plenty of plot twists and dives, lots of snarky humor, but the series doesn't over extend itself. I don't know what I was expecting, but I really enjoyed it. The acting is excellent and at points amazingly subtle. Season 1 kept my wife and I glued to the screen from start to finish.

Another excellent piece of work from the creator of "Buffy", "Angel", & "Firefly". Fine cast & a premise that is actually EXAMINED through the course of the series. Definitely deserved more than 2 seasons but probably a little complex for the average TV exec, Ah well, the visigoths win again!

A lone FBI agent is convinced that the underground operation exists even though it is considered an urban legend.

This is a really fun show, although it gets off to a slow start. Lots of surprising twists amidst the action, emotion and laughs. Very thought-provoking on questions of technology, morality, and even what it means to be "a person."

I thought this series was terrible: badly acted, constant American commercial "cliffhangers"; garbled storyline. Miss it.

I really enjoyed this show, and was very upset when it got cancelled. I am still hopeful some cable channel will pick it up, this series has so much potential! And Eliza Dushku is just wonderful in this.

Another great show of Joss Whedon's. Everything he does is amazing. Too bad it got cancelled after the 2nd season. But you should definitely watch it anyway. It is well worth it. Dollhouse is original and to some people probably a little out there. But it's not the same boring stuff you've seen many times before. You'll love it.
