Dollhouse series finale

Saw the Dollhouse series finale.

The entire cast gave excellent performances, especially Olivia Williams, Alan Tudyk, and Eliza Dushku, but it was Fran Kranz who truly broke my heart.

With so little time, not everything got wrapped up. I hated Boyd's resolution. It felt cheap, and very much deus ex machina. I understand, no time left, and I forgive. I'm just saying.

Most frustrating of all for me is the lack of a conclusion for Claire Saunders' storyline. Who was she before the Dollhouse? Who was she to Topher? I hope her past will come out at a fan convention panel or something. I know, Amy Acker was filming Happy Town and the timing just didn't work out, but I've found her character interesting from the beginning, and I just hate not knowing her background.

Side note: Did anyone besides me feel like several parts of this ep were huge shout-outs to Serenity? The whole shooting from the back of the truck while being pursued by Reavers Butchers ... heck, in many of the scenes you could've replaced one term with the other ... even down to the mention of Butchers eating each other. Speaking of Serenity, some of the fans mentioned how they could see this ending as the beginning of the origin world for Firefly's verse.

I wish people had given this show more of a chance.

Here's hoping that Whedon's next endeavor is able to reach full blossom, unhindered.

as well as the ones you mentioned there's the whole dinner scene, the strawberry, the brown coats being worn, going to safe HAVEN, and a million others!:)

I was really heartbroekn for lack of resolution to Claire Saunders' storyline too but I guess that's what fanfic is for. :)

Topher and Adelle had me practically sobbing the entire time they were on screen together. I am a total Adelle/Topher shipper and the whole..."Topher Brink is a genius! And you will keep a civil tongue in this house or we'll put it in the stew!" line had me squeeing like no other. Though Topher's ending is so sad...I want to make a video where the Doctor from Doctor Who comes in and at the insistence of Adelle jumps in and saves him.

*chuckles* Ah, but which Doctor? Speaking of that, I seriously need to catch up on Doctor Who. I stopped a few episodes after Tennant started because I just couldn't deal with the transition. Perhaps enough time has now passed that I'd be able to appreciate him on his own.

I was writing Ten (David Tennant) and Donna but I make it very clear in the story that Adelle was once his companion.
