Television Musings - Rants and Raves of a Romance Writer

By Kathy Carpenter


The new show Dollhouse is somewhat creative. They take people who are like a blank canvass. They exist is a neutral and live at this spa type place taken care of by the people they work for. Missed like the first three episodes so I not quite sure how they came to be there.

People hire the company for certain type person with a set of skills. The company takes these people existing in a doll-like state and inject through computers a whole persons life. They have memories of a whole life and the skills they need to complete the job. The one first one I watched the girl had the skill set of a master thief. At the other one I saw she had become a blind girl taken in to a cult. They had a camera implanted to see what her eyes normally would. Interesting.

After they complete the task, they are wiped and return to the doll state to await their next job.

The other new show I watched is Castle. The new romantic comedy detective cop show. It pair up a Mystery writer and a female cop, who solve real murders together. Cute. Reminds me of the old Moonlighting series with Cybil Shepard.and Bruce Willis

I love Dollhouse because of that concept. Taking a blank slate, so to speak and turning it into a person and Castle, because of Nathan Fillion, is a must see. You're right on the energy of Moonlighting.
