Welcome to the Dollhouse (Finally)

Joss Whedon’s new show Dollhouse is set to debut on the doomed Friday night of February 13th (yes, Friday the 13th–an awesome sign). Entertainment Weekly hosted the above clip from the first episode, where…

The following scene from the Feb. 13 premiere is the first
time we see Echo (Eliza Dushku) wake up after having her memories wiped
in the special memory-flushing chair. That leads into a discussion
between lab tech Topher (Fran Kranz) and Echo’s handler Boyd (Harry
Lennix) about her last “date,” delving into just what being a
doll/active means.

Boy, that scintillating Whedon dialogue…uh…isn’t there, exactly. Now, I’m one of those big Buffy/Angel/Firefly guys, so I’m definitely a fan, and am willing to give the show a try, which means I’ll slowly warm to it and when I find Dollhouse awesome beyond all measure, Fox will immediately cancel it. But I watching that clip, I’d never suspect this was a Joss Whedon joint…well, besides Eliza Dushku walking around without a bra, one of Whedon’s favorite themes. (Via /Film)
