    I thought since we've had a few weeks to properly digest the news of Dollhouse's renewal it might be time to throw out a few ideas on what forum members here want to see in S2. The forum's not had a lot of activity in the last week or so apart from the Off-Topic threads which is understandable since the show's off the air for the time being but I thought it'd be nice to have something show-related to discuss for a while.

    Any particular storylines you'd like to see introduced or further expanded upon? Maybe a look into what the Rossum Corporation is up to?

    Any characters you'd like to see more (or less) of? How could some characters become more interesting to you?

    How do you want the tone of the show to change? More paranoia? More violence? More comedy, perhaps? Or do you think it's already right on track?

    Anything else that you'd like to see in a second season or maybe some things you definitely don't want to happen?

    I'll start off by saying that I'm kind of loving the idea of somebody like Adelle or Topher starting to think they were a Doll even though they weren't and becoming really disturbed and obsessed by that idea. We've got Dolls who think they're real people and a Doll who knows they're a Doll. What about a person who thinks they may be a Doll and having no way of proving otherwise. The only way to tell, really, would be using that drug we saw in Echoes but after that was over they would have no way of knowing if they'd actually experienced the drug or just had memories of experiencing the drug imprinted on them. Could be real interesting I think.

    What does everybody else think?

    More Adelle!
    Less Ballard!

    Also I wanna see the other Dollhouses. Our one is corrupt, yes, but who's to say the other ones aren't more corrupt? They could have the other Dollhouses forcing people into it rather than giving them a choice (like Sierra), never giving people their bodies back and keep using them as a Doll for as long as possible, something that shows how corrupt they really are.

    I'd like the episodes to be more like Man On The Street and onwards rather than the 5 episodes before it. Standalones just don't interest me all that much. They're all "nice" or "decent" but not great. Atleast not for Joss' previous standards. Oh, and more Echo/Sierra/Victor interaction. And more of Adelle's fragile side too.

    Less Ballard. He is so snooze-fest, but with rumors he will be Echo's new handler, I guess we will be seeing a lot of him...

    More Adelle! I love this woman, she is so complex.

    Sierra/Victor scenes They are just too cute!

    I'd like some back story on Topher and Sierra. And delving into the Rossum corporation sounds really cool. Like what Joss never got to do with Blue Sun on Firefly.

    Oh yeah I want more Sierra/Victor too. I think they have the potential to be a great, non-whiny couple .

    I'd like to see November again, in some sort of form. I just love the actress and thought she was really good.

    I'd like to see arc-storylines. We have this overall arc happening, but maybe an arc-imprint. Like, three episodes where Echo is imprinted with a certain personality and it follows that storyline, which leads to more.

    Maybe the imprints could be investigating Rossum or something, I don't know. But I'd like to see imprinted personalities having some sort of involvement with the actual show, and not just standalone storylines.

    I want a ship between Adelle and Ballard. I want to learn more about Dr. Whiskey, Victor, Boyd and Ivy. Want more ensemble cast stories and less Echo/engagement of the week. I want to learn more about the other dollhouses, see Ballard's ex-wife, find out if Caroline's boyfriend is really dead and have an episode about the "previous Sierra" to see if that dickhead Hearne molested her too. Plus Alpha setting up his own "dollhouse" turning out more demented Alpha Dolls.

    I don't want anymore "Stage Fright" and that's about all I can think of for now.

    No. Adelle is mine. And I find Ballard annoying. And I have a feeling that he will always have a thing for Echo/Caroline.

    Yes! I really wanna go more into them. The supporting characters really make this show.
    And more Topher too!

    Yes please. Echo frustrates me.

    Hmm... this has never really been an issue for me, but now that you mention it, I think it would be interesting to see.

    Meh don't care. It'll be cool if she comes on the show and gets him naked.

    puredieselbc wrote:

    Well I always assumed that he was...

    Hmm... nah I don't really like this backstory much.

    Anything with more Alpha would be awesome

    Why does everyone hate Echo? She is awesome and SEXY.

    And Ballard's obsession with Echo/Caroline is weird/annoying. I have a feeling they'll try to make them a Buffy/Angel type thing *screams*.

    I loved Faith, and I think Eliza is really pretty, but I've never been a huge fan of hers. I can't stand her voice and I can't stand the shoulder thing

    You know, the shoulder thing!

    The one she does when she doesn't know how to emote properly.

    Thankyou for gracing us with your posts.


    She did it as Faith too, and it Tru Calling AND as Missy in Bring it On. It's very distracting when you know it's there.

    I don't mind the shoulder thing. I just don't think Echo/Caroline is a compelling enough character compared to the other actives.

    "And Ballard's obsession with Echo/Caroline is weird/annoying. I have a feeling they'll try to make them a Buffy/Angel type thing *screams*.

    God I hope not. Echo and Paul have no chemistry whatsoever. NONE. As for Paul not being interesting, I think that's because the writeres kept sending him up blind alleys every flippin' week. So when viewers saw him they tuned out because it was another dead end storyline. However he was really great in BSG as Halo since those writers actually gave him something to work with. Now that he's inside the Dollhouse I expect he'll get much more interesting.

    I actually really LOVED it when Ballard was talking to Margaret and said "I'm nobody". Such a great example of classic awesome dialogue.
