    Hi Guys,

    With the show about to end and with most of us very familiar with all the regulars, I was just wondering whom you would name as the best actor in the show?

    I would choose Enver and then Amy. What about you? Who would you pick?

    Victor as Topher will always be my favorite,but then Topher as Topher was annoying as a super-dupa-genius i guess that means he was that good!..

    Amy had a good story in Angel but not in Dollhouse, but in this week's episode she was good as Clyde.

    lets not forget the Maniac alpha

    Dushku was also good...

    1. Enver
    2. Franz
    3. Summer and Alpha (the best guest stars )

    This could be a poll question.

    I'd say Enver and Harry. But, I do love Amy as well.

    I don't find it necessary to mention Eliza because everyone automatically knows that I think she's amazing! *grin*, which makes her always on the list.

    You know, I've never been all that impressed with Eliza's acting.

    I think it's because Eliza herself has so much charisma that her real life personality overshadows her characters. Because, really, she's best at those characters who can kick butt. The quieter, more introverted characters seem to be more of a challenge for her.

    Alan Tudyk blew me away as Alpha - he was awesome. As usual, I suppose.

    Enver as... everyone. He's absolutely perfect. I was a little unsure about his Anthony at first, because after seeing everyone he's done, Anthony was just so bland and typical, but he turned out to be a charming dude. GO ENVER.

    Alan Tudyk as Alpha. I mean, I knew he was going to play Alpha and I wasn't very familiar to me so it slipped my mind and i saw him as the stoner dude and it was hilarious and I never suspected for a moment despite actually *knowing.*

    Fran Kranz. He brings a lot of depth to Topher, he's funny, sometimes he's odd, he's often adorable and absolutely heartbreaking in this season. Extremely convincing.

    Enver said in a movie that he's going to be in a movie coming out sometime his year. So, I'm looking on his IMDb page... http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2222175/

    The movie is called "Stone," and that's the only thing that he has the near future. That will have to change. He's too good not to go on to an awesome career.

    all the Dolls played such versatile characters every episode (well at least season 1)

    and Topher, best comedic relief ever?

    I agree that Eliza's acting can be very variable, I was saying that I think Eliza herself is fantastic. I've seen a lot of interviews with her and she certainly is charismatic etc. as you said. There are many things about her which I admire, most particularly her on-going work with deaf and handicapped children.

    Yeah, I like Eliza. I think she's great in real life. I'm just "meh" on her acting.

    As far as I'm concerned, this should have just been called "The Victor Show".
    The main girl was believable as a mind-wiped doll and a ditzy sorority babe and that's it.
    Victor played both of those roles more lovably as well as a shell-shocked soldier and a sexy Mr. Lonelyhearts and Topher.

    Yeah, you gotta go with Victor. I'll be honest, I wasn't crazy about Victor when he was introduced to us as Lubov. I had my doubts about him...

    Yeah, I look foolish now, but seriously, Lubov's got to be the least impressive character Victor had and it was the first we saw.

    Honestly, I liked all the main characters and their performances, but Victor definately stands out.

    Also, I've got to mention Alpha. I haven't loved how Alpha's been handled (particularly in Omega), but I've loved Alan Tudyk's performance.

    And Amy Acker also gets props.

    Is it bad that I may be as interested in the Alpha-Whiskey Dollhouse as I am the actual Dollhouse? Am I alone in that?
