Eliza Dushku on what Dollhouse taught her, and what it can teach us
Dollhouse season two is on DVD, which means it’s time to rediscover Joss Whedon’s most challenging show. We spoke to star/producer Eliza Dushku about the show’s challenges, the criticisms Dollhouse faced…and the Echo/Paul outtakes that were too much for TV.
For those of you who missed it, Dollhouse was a show that ran for two seasons on Fox, about people whose minds have been erased, allowing them to be programmed to be whoever a paying client wants. And in the second season, newly out on DVD, the questions about the morality of this technology get amped up massively, as we see the true evils behind treating people like property — and we explore the idea that the abuse of this technology leads to the apocalypse.

Cloak & Dagger on TV: What to Do, What Not to Do
ABC and Marvel recently made a big splash in the news by announcing that they were going to be bringing back one classic Marvel superhero TV series, The Incredible Hulk, and starting an all-new one, Cloak & Dagger. Based on a comic book about two teens who were given an overdose of synthetic drugs that activated their mutant superpowers, the characters Cloak and Dagger have been around since 1982 but have faded in and out of the spotlight since then. And while the new Hulk series has five decades of comics, two feature films and a beloved TV show to draw inspiration from, we’re worried that the lesser-known C&D might suffer from their new home on ABC Family. As longtime fans of the characters, here are some tips for what to do and what not to do with them.
DON’T: Clean it up for ABC Family
The characters started out as runaways, and they were abducted and shot up with heroin. It’s not your typical origin story, but it’s what these two street-level characters were about, and it’s why they despise drug dealers. We know you’re trying to be more edgy with shows like Pretty Little Liars, ABC Family, but don’t change their origins to something more generically scientific in the name of family values.
