The Big Finish: TV Show Finales That Got Us Talking.
Quote
Dollhouse "Epitaph: Part Two" January 29, 2010. While it was technically canceled, Dollhouse did manage to tie everything up in time to have a proper finale, And it was perfect. It took the characters to their logical conclusions, began the restoration of a world they failed to save, honored the fallen, and ended on a poignant grace note, a perfect touch of symmetry, as Echo lies down to sleep in the pod that once symbolized her captivity, only now physically, psychologically, and spiritually free. The Worst thing about "Epitaph 2" was everything it hinted at that we"ll never see, all that meaty story that would have bridged the gap between the main timeline and the post-apocalyptic Epitaph timeline. How did Alpha become an ally and a friend? What exactly went down between Priya and Tony? And how did civilization crumble despite the heroes" victory against the Rossum Corporation? We"ll never know. Thanks, Fox.

Happy Birthday Eliza Dushku 33 Today, Born December 30, 1980 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA,  Probably best remembered for playing the part of " Echo " in Joss Whedon"s  Dollhouse (TV Series) 2009-2010, 
Quote
Echo is now everyone"s pawn, being moved about the board without her knowledge for things unknown, or is she ? Is she becoming aware ? Is she thinking independently or is she just another Doll, mindless and obedient to the whims of those in possession of her. Echo is an active in the Dollhouse. Her name before activation was Caroline.

Quote
Lust For Love is a romantic comedy starring Fran Kranz (The Cabin In The Woods, Dollhouse), Dichen Lachman (Last Resort, Dollhouse), and Beau Garrett (Tron: Legacy, Fantastic 4). The film also stars additional Whedon alumni Enver Gjokaj (The Avengers, Dollhouse), Miracle Laurie (Dollhouse), and Twitter-sensation Felicia Day (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse). The film was written, directed, and produced by first-time filmmaker Anton King with Dichen Lachman and Jack Wylson producing alongside him. Gravitas Ventures will release Lust For Love on VOD and across all other digital platforms on Friday, February 7.

Quote
Astor"s (Fran Kranz) happy tenacity spoils his one chance at love with his lifelong crush Mila (Beau Garrett). Convinced he needs more experience with women to win her back, he engages her ex-best friend Cali (Dichen Lachman) to teach him how to woo women. Together they dissect his failings, and Astor makes his awkward pick-up attempts. As Astor begins to juggle multiple opportunities, he discovers the source of the rift between Cali and Mila, and the trio are forced to confront their conceptions about love.

Whedonverse Alums On Life After “Dollhouse”

Dichen Lachman, Fran Krantz, Miracle Laurie, and Enver Gjokaj explain how Fox’s short-lived Dollhouse — and Joss Whedon — made their new movie, Lust for Love, possible.

We don't comment on Summer's private life here at the Summer Glau Wiki but when Fran Kranz himself (who plays Topher Brink, Summer Glau's character love interest in Dollhouse) mentions an anecdote involving Summer's boyfriend, it's sounds so funny.

Quote
Did any of you know one another before getting cast?
[...]
Fran: That’s right! Was that the same night I got thrown out of that bar?
Miracle: Oh, Fran….
Fran: I got thrown out of that bar by Summer Glau’s boyfriend, of all people.
Miracle: See! It’s a small world, an even smaller town, and the Whedonverse makes it even smaller.
Fran: That’s right, I remember I texted Dichen afterwards asking if Summer Glau’s boyfriend worked at The Woods. Yeah, OK. Oh man.

TV Shows Which Completely Changed Their Premise  /  4.  Dollhouse

Like Angel, another show from Joss Whedon"s stable, Dollhouse initially relied on self-contained episodes, which explored the missions undertaken by mind-wiped human operatives called "dolls" who were implanted with new false memories each week. It was Alias starring Eliza Dushku, in other words, with sci-fi elements thrown in. The first handful of episodes were consequently quite dull until the overarching plot began to take affect, and the show began to explore the roots of the doll technology and its potential misuse.

By season two, Dollhouse had a firmly established mythology and the dolls were beginning to recover their individuality to face the sinister corporation Rossum. The weekly assignments disappeared after the first few episodes and the series built to its game-changing series finale, then dropped another bombshell when it revealed a post-apocalyptic future set barely ten years afterwards. It had utterly outgrown its original premise, but ratings had already diminished beyond repair.

8 Reasons Joss Whedon"s Dollhouse Deserves Another Look  /  6. The Fan Favorites! The Guest Stars!  

To many fans of his work, Joss Whedon is known for two things: brutally killing your favorite characters, and utilizing actors from previous projects in new ones. Star of Dollhouse Eliza Dushku portrayed Faith on both Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel.

Amy Acker was fan favorite Fred on Angel.  Alexis Denisof, Wesley from Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel, appears in four episodes.

Former Browncoats from the Serenity (Firefly) Summer Glau and Alan Tudyk appear in multiple episode arcs as well.

For all of the fans of Dr. Horrible"s Sing-Along Blog, Felicia Day stops by for two episodes.

And he didn"t stop there. Battlestar Galactica fans can rejoice in knowing Tahmoh Penikett, Helo from BSG, appears in all 27 episodes.

His fellow BSG cast mates Jamie Bamber (Captain Adama) and Michael Hogan (Colonel Tigh) make guest appearances as well, and Mark Sheppard checks both cult show boxes, having appeared in both Firefly and BSG.

Even comedian / Internet Hero Patton Oswalt appears in two episodes. In other words, Whedon knows what the fans want. And he delivers.

The cuckoo clock charm necklace worn by Summer Glau as Bennett Halverson in Dollhouse has a side of chain stamp reading ‘Lil Coo Coo’.

Bennett Halverson is a little cuckoo (for a reason), and she probably loved this sweet little necklace!

10 Amazing TV Shows With Surprisingly Weak First Seasons 

6. Dollhouse 

After Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly, Joss Whedon was under a tremendous amount of pressure to produce quality when his new show Dollhouse was announced. 
And maybe those high expectations were ultimately what doomed the show. 
It had an interesting premise, about people who had different personalities and memories installed in their brains from week to week, depending on the situation and what the paying client required. OK, we would watch that. 

But the first few episodes were uninspired, conforming more to a network idea of what the show should be rather than Whedon"s own aesthetic. 
While it improved a little bit over the course of the first season, it wasn"t enough to win back viewers who had already given up. 
The second season was a vast improvement, and more along the lines of what we expect from Joss Whedon, but all the same, it was cancelled after just two seasons.

What"s The Big Idea? How Lost Changed The Game For US Television

6) Dollhouse 

What"s the big idea?
 
In the near-future, a secret global corporation has perfected technology that allows them to implant personalities into human minds. Such subjects (known as "Dolls") are then able to perform all manner of bespoke duties for wealthy clients, although matters are complicated when a doll called "Echo" grows self-aware. 

Did the idea take hold? 

Created by Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel), sci-fi fans were much keener on Dollhouse than general audiences, with just 4.7m tuning in for the pilot.

Did the idea prove durable ?

Kind of. Fox persevered with Dollhouse into a second season, which was creatively much stronger, but ultimately pulled the plug because of low ratings. Fortunately, the writers were able to end the series with a run of excellent episodes with big revelations, to satisfy the loyal fanbase. The story was continued with a 2011 run of comic books too.
