Through five episodes, Dollhouse has suffered through a lukewarm reception and even worse ratings.
But creator Joss Whedon recently sent reporters the DVD of the show's next two installments, along with a note that read:
"These two episodes represent a much stronger vision of what I consider the show to be."
The man behind Dollhouse describes episode six, "Man on the Street," as a game-changer. In it, Tahmoh Penikett's Agent Ballard comes face-to-face with Echo for the first time.
"For me, the question isn't just whether a show is enjoyable, but whether it's more than the sum of its fun, whether it truly touches, surprises or connects with you," said Whedon. "These [episodes] may do none of the above — I'm not the boss of your opinion — but I feel strongly that they, and the eps to follow, are pretty intense, and very much worth the watching."
