    That's a hard one to choose, too.

    I'm always a sucker for the funny geeky characters, so probably Topher. If Victor had a more developed character it might be him though. And I really like Reed Diamond from when he was on Homicide and I think he did a great job as Mr. Dominic. The only one that I have no trouble excluding as my favorite is Paul, but he's alright.

    Topher. Not only he grew on me, I feel that the other ones were less developed characters.

    Topher and Boyd are both close behind but I went for Victor. Gjokaj is such a good actor he steals practically every scene he's in.

    I went for Topher but it was tough. But, like Jay, it was only hard to decide between everyone but Paul.

    I'll say Boyd. Topher is growing on me (and he is really pretty). Mr. Dominic is an interesting character. I like Victor, but he is probably my least favourite of the main dolls (not counting Novemeber). Paul is the worst character on the show, he is dull.

    I love Topher to pieces, but I was SO sure Victor would have the most votes!

    I voted Victor but now thinking about it, I should have went with Topher. But they are both awesome, as is Boyd. Dominic is good too.

    Ballard is easily the worst character on the show imo.

    I can't actually remember who I voted for because yesterday was so long ago. I had trouble choosing between 2. I think I went with Boyd.

    I'm so glad that there are guys voting for their fave male too! I voted for Victor, he's probably my most favorite, mainly because Enver plays him so well, and it doesn't help that he's smokey and mysterious, even if he's meant to take on multiple personalities.

    I do like Topher, but he can get a lil cold or non-sociable (when he's not on drugs). I do like Boyd as the father figure, and he's nice too. I like Ballard to an extent, his fight for freedom-ness can get old quick, and he needs to learn to let it go. But that's what his character was all about, so he played his part well.

    I'd like to see all the male characters get expanded, plot-wise, and character-wise this second season.

    From the list I say Topher I love Alpha though . I wish Echo would slice up Paul, I cannot stand his character.

    Well, it's difficult for me.

    I want to say Victor, because Enver is just so brilliant, probably the most talented one on the show (next to Acker), and every personality is so completely believable and scene-stealing. Unfortunately though, Victor is a doll, and unlike November or Whiskey who have a single imprint we see them as most, or Echo who is remembering her real self, Victor has no primary personality we see, so we'd have to judge his character based off of what we saw of his original personality in "Needs" and "Epitaph One", and he's just not my favorite based off of those.

    And Topher, I love, but there's just something about him I can't put my finger on that would make choosing him as my favorite male character seem wrong.

    I love Boyd, but something about him just strikes me as dull. Maybe it's because we haven't gotten far into his backstory and he hasn't really cultivated relationships with any non-doll characters in a meaningful way (besides the snippet we saw of him and Claire in "Epitaph One"). Plus, he was much less used in the stronger half of the season that he was in the weaker half, so he hasn't been given too much of a shot to prove himself on a worthy proving ground.

    Then there's Ballard. Ballard, Ballard, Ballard, what can I say. The do-gooder routine does indeed get old fast, and he didn't really have much character besides an obsession with the Dollhouse, an obsession with Caroline, and a willingness to take something if it was convenient and right in front of him whether he wanted it that much or not. All in all, doesn't sound like a favorite to me. However, it seems he's going to be taking a much better role in the show in future seasons from what we saw in "Omega", "Epitaph One", and previews for season two, so I may very well end up liking him much more as time goes on.

    Dominic I love, because as much of a jerk as he can be, in the end, he's right (again, as we saw in "Epitaph One"). Even if he was mean to DeWitt (my favorite character on the show at this point, with Whiskey right behind), he did it in an amusing manner, or so I thought. Framing Ivy wasn't cool though, knowing what she'd go through for something he did. He should have framed someone he hated, like Topher. What did Ivy ever do to him? Anyway...

    So, when it comes down to it... I have no idea.

    Really good points, buffyTVsrox. It's sorta hard to make a final choice between the guys. I think the girls are maybe a bit easier to pick, well, they were for me anyway.
