From IMBD.COM: The show follows an organization that employs mind-wiped DNA-altered humans known as Dolls who are implanted with false memories and skills for various missions and tasks. When they are not 'at work' they are living in a real life Dollhouse which gives the show the name. One of those mind-wiped humans, a young woman named Echo, is slowly starting to become aware of herself and what's going on - all the while somebody on the outside is trying to bring the Dollhouse down while getting closer to Echo - possibly not aware that she is one of the Dolls he is after.

Anyway, just watch it, it comes on directly after Terminator: Sarah Conners Choricles so just keep it tuned when that other good show goes off!
Yeah, I have been watching it, but I am not completely sold on this show though. The first episode was not very good and had me thinking that maybe I should switched over to "Flashpoint" on CBS. The only reason I didn’t change channels is that I prefer to watch a show from the beginning, and not start somewhere near the middle.
The second show was a little better.
But, as you point out, Walt, Dollhouse comes on right after "Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles," and since I am already tuned into Fox, I have more or less just let the show run... so far. But you can bet that I will be watching something else when the reruns start, like maybe catching up on "Flashpoint."
I may give Dollhouse a little more time but this really isn't the kind of show, ethically, that I am interested in watching. The whole concept of this show screams of big business run amok. I mean, the people who run the Dollhouse are the bad guys (if you ask me), who am I supposed to root for?
The FBI agent trying to track down the Dollhouse seems to be the only one I can root for so far. Okay, maybe Echo's handler has potential to be a good person, he does question what he is doing, but right now, he is still working for the Dollhouse, and thus, a villain too, in my book… unless he is secretly an undercover agent.
