I keep trying to get into the Terminator show and I just can't. I think it's mainly because you know that Sarah Connor will never, ever win. The machines will rise because otherwise what's that film that's coming out this summer about? So why should I invest in it? I do like evil Scottish robot lady, though I have no idea what she's doing most of the time. Thinking evil thoughts, I am sure.

ETA: On Dollhouse I think I just hate everyone. Including emotionally conflicted ex-cop. It's almost worse because he knows it's wrong, but he's still going along with it. And this tonight's plot was cheesy the first 15 times it's been used; it didn't gain anything from another airing.

ETA 2: I am not sure there are words for how stupid Dollhouse is. It's a bit breathtaking. Maybe it will become fun stupid, but I'm not betting on it.

Oh, Whedon.

There's a really interesting story to be told about the commodification and reshaping of women but in order to convince me that this is what this series can do a) there would need to be far less slavering shots of Dushku's body* and b) they'd need a better actress. Oh, and c) better writing.

*Yes! She's hot! But it was creepy in all the wrong ways instead of the ways that it was supposed to be. Was it just me or was there something off about how this was directed?
