Wimsey cogito

All caught up with Dollhouse

Episode 8 annoyed me; sans the non-linear storytelling gimmick, it would have been a boring story. Episode 9 was actually good. No excuses, no relative measures, just good. This one makes the plotline completely twisty and interesting.

It needed to be episode 5, because I have spent the previous 8 episodes thinking that I loathe the characters, until the moment I realized I liked DeWitt and nobody else. Some amount of personal investment with the characters might have helped me get through the bad writing until this run of episodes. As it is, the lame start might have killed the show's chances.
