We finally enter the mysterious Attic - the secret vault where the Dollhouse keeps damaged actives and problematic employees unconscious and in a perpetual state of terror. Adelle has had Echo sent ...
Set after the events in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), Sarah Connor and her son, John, try to stay under-the-radar from the government, as they plot to destroy the computer network, Skynet, in hopes of preventing Armageddon.
Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
A shadowy organization uses mind-wiped humans known technically as "actives" and colloquially as "dolls" who are imprinted with false memories and specialized skills for various tasks on behalf of paying clients. When they are not on assignments, they live in an underground "Dollhouse", a facility that protects and provides for their needs, including food, exercise and sleeping pods little bigger than coffins. One of the dolls, a young woman called Echo by her handlers, is slowly becoming aware of herself and what is going on. Meanwhile, at least two different people on the outside are trying to bring down the Dollhouse, one by finding Echo and the other by using her.Written by

Good concept even now it is 9 yrs ago! The likes of recent series Stichers is very alike in concept of applying others cognitive memories into another body.
As I only recently came across Dollhouse I binge watched the first season and found it quite addictive for the first 12 episodes at least! I did find episode 13 the final episode of season 1 strange and confusing as it didn't run on from previous episodes and there was no link so found it a very poor season finale to what promised to be so good? Unsure what season 2 will be like yet but am prepared to watch to see.
Have watched season 2 and thankfully it seemed to continue on from episode 12 I really enjoyed the 2nd and sadly final season and only at the last episode did I see were episode 13 of the first season fitted in! Bizarre idea to not have them con currently but hey ho it didn't put me off thankfuly
