My Ranking of the Dollhouse Episodes

by batmanjokercatwoman | created - 25 Oct 2017 | updated - 25 Oct 2017 | Public

While not Joss Whedon's best show by any means, it's one of the most underrated shows I've seen which (just like Firefly) was robbed of it's chances to reach it's full potential.

The idea of wiping peoples minds and re-programming for specific needs, helps deal with themes of identity, slavery, free-will, activism.

There is not a bad episode in my opinion, I decided to rank all of them as there are only 26.
