It never changes…Joss Whedon is a genius.

You can’t argue it. If you’re a geek, he should very well be one of the gods that you pray to. His story-telling, original ideas, and ability to write dialogue and moments that shock, don’t disrupt the flow of a scene and feel real are a constant source of entertainment for me.

So why am I all super-hyped about Joss again (as I ever wasn’t)? I’m about 40 minutes through the last episode of Dollhouse.

I’ve enjoyed Dollhouse since its inception. Admittedly, there were some moments in between where I kinda watched it in the periphery while I did something else, and I lost 4 episodes in the great DVR disaster of 2009, but it was always enjoyable. To think all of that built into what the series finale has wound up being blows me away.

Was he really going here all along? I would bet anything he was. Did we have to get here a little faster than I would have liked? Definitely, yes.

**Spoiler Alert**
Case in point – the moment Ballard was shot in the head with no warning, no fanfare, no pause in the story. I yelled out, at home by myself, while I was watching and getting ready for work. He’s was a core character…we’d bonded! Who does that? Joss. And I love him for it.

The change to all the characters was spot on. Topher going crazy because he probably initiated the end of the world as they knew it. Adele caring for him. Pria and Anthony…it was all right. And the break down that Echo finally had over Paul was absolutely perfect. I still have about 15 minutes to go and I almost don’t want to finish. There’s so little of this story-telling on today that I really don’t want to run out of it.

I want to say that I can’t believe he did it again. But in the end, it’s really, “of course he did it again”.

About Mama's a Mess

Who am I and what am I doing here? Well, at the end of the day I'm a mother and a wife, a lover of classic monster movies and comic books, of music, TV and movies. I'm a sucker for pop culture. I'm a fangirl. I'm an artist. As my husband always puts it, "Baby, you're a mess!" I have a penchant for creating and collecting. I feed my brain with a mix of anything from hot rods and pin-ups to handmade and natural. I like to dig in the dirt and grow things but sometimes picture myself doing it like Donna Reed. I will always, always choose to wear a dress first. I am head over heels in love with my husband and have a fantastically crazy life with him.
