We don't have a television (well, okay, we do have one but it has rabbit ears and a bad signal. We get two fuzzy channels on a good day) so whatever I watch is either online or on DVD. I haven't watched anything but the occasional movie for months now and honestly haven't felt that I've been missing anything.
Until Dollhouse. Since I love (no, LOVE!) everything by Joss Whedon, the creator of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly, I was dreading having to wait until the DVDs came out.
Thank God for the internet.
All of the episodes are on Hulu.
Eliza Dushku has never been better, the action is intense, the story is intriguing and there were guns. Really. And an inkling of proof that someone involved in making the show is quite possibly a real gunny. No kidding. The second episode opened with a bloody scene - something violent and dangerous had happened at the dollhouse - and one of the characters who had survived the initial attack wanted to protect himself, and asked for a gun.
"Seriously? Gun?" he asked, hands out and pleading, in perfect Whedonesque style.
And in another scene, Echo (Dushku) is asked if she knows how to use a gun. "I have three brothers, and none of them Democrats," she says as she racked the slide, finger carefully indexed along the frame.
My kind of show.
