Tv Nibble: Topher Tests the Fence

This week’s episode of Dollhouse was written by Dollhouse new snapshotcomers, creators of Reaper, Tara Butlers and Michele Fazekas. While interesting, this episode didn’t really push any of my buttons. For a start, there was a distinct lack of characters. No Victor, Whiskey or Boyd and very little Sierra. This episode felt more like the “one-off” season 1 episodes that every one complains about.

However, what I did find interesting was Topher’s new application for the imprinting process. He believes that he can curesnapshot(1) anything from a dislike of sea urchin to cancer just by manipulating the brain and that is a cool concept. This week also saw a return for November, who is possibly handing off information to Daniel Perrin, the US Senator portrayed by Alexis Denisof, who also made an appearance. (Although I have reason to suspect that DeWitt is the mole… maybe)

All in all, while there were interesting bits floating around, this episode of the Dollhouse was just not up to standard. Shame.
