Dollhouse

So, I just watched episode 1. It's good, but I'm still not convinced that Eliza Dushku has the range for what looks to be a pretty demanding role. Eh, maybe I'm just to used to thinking of her as Faith. I'm willing to be proved wrong. Thoughts?

Oh, and I'm starting the betting at 8 weeks before it's canceled.

I'm not going to bet on how long it last. I'm also not convinced about Dushku's range, but Joss Whedon is. And Joss Whedon is my master now, so that's good enough for me. The core idea behind the development of this series was Whedon's belief that Dushku has a far greater range than anyone has ever seen. Based on the pilot, while Dushku didn't set the place on fire, she did play two distinct characters, one of whom was very vaguely similar to Faith, one of whom wasn't remotely like Faith, and she performed both characters perfectly well.

Eh, I didn't find her terribly convincing as the negotiator. She got better as the episode continued, or maybe I just adjusted to it, but at the beginning of that sequence I thought she was pretty shakey.

Also, the dress she wore in the dance scene was very very short.
