the story is mostly center on echo(eliza dushku)whos kinda ended up in a bad place. i dont want to give to much away but this woman gets into some trouble.her only way out is to join this group called dollhouse.
once she joins this group she'll be safe and have money for almost the rest of her life but there a price.she will lose 5 years of her life working for the dollhouse and that theyll will get rid of her own personality.once her personality is gone people will pay the dollhouse for echo and other dolls services which can range from killing someone,being a perfect date,a mother,a son (etc).
as the story goes on echo is basically a doll who has no emotions,no personality,she has no will of her own and all the dolls are kinda stupied. the difference with echo is that shes not like all the other dolls when she gets a personality put in her.and then the dollhouse take her memory away of that personality and make her a dumb doll again.echo somehow still remembers little parts when she became someone else.
i like the story simply b/c its so intersting to see this girl go on different missions and take on different personalities. some fans dont like how eliza portays echo but i like eliza acting and thought nothing was wrong with it.i think some fans focus to much on her acting than the story. theres also some good fights on the show with eliza.eliza has really made an effort to do all her stunts and she did a good job with them in this series.
this show only lasted 2 seasons which i hate.i could have seen this show going on for at least 4 seasons but we all kow how fox is with scifi shows. theres not that many issues with the show.i like the plot of the show and i even loves the stand alones eps.i give it a 8.5 b/c its a great show but i it alot of potential.my advice is to watch it.it is a good show.i say watch this show it is good.
