I’m not giving anything away — or at least I’m trying not to so I’m sorry if this reads cryptically. Dollhouse is genre — sci fi. As usual Whedon brings strong female leads, lots to think about and a great, action-filled story.
Dollhouse episode 1 is 53 pages and written in 4 acts (14, 15, 13 and 11 pages). Act One is devoted to revealing this mysterious new phenomenon that is at the heart of the series and the character I assume will be the central figure in the series.
Act Two shines a light on the characters in conflict around our lead and the moral ambiguities of this world.
Act Three is action packed and Act Four twists what already looked like an entirely fresh premise into something very new and exciting.
Dollhouse is slated for Fox in Fall 2008.
