Those of you who read my words on Doctor Horrible will see I referenced another upcoming Joss Whedon project, Dollhouse. This is the seperate post that it deserves.

"In Dollhouse, Eliza Dushku plays a young woman named Echo, a member of a group of people known as "Actives" or "Dolls" who volunteered for the work in the Dollhouse. They give up five years of their lives, and at the end they receive a large sum of money and no memory of anything they did for the Dollhouse. The Dolls have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas, including memory, muscle memory, skills, and language, for different assignments. They're then hired out for particular jobs, crimes, fantasies, and occasional good deeds. On missions, Actives are monitored by Handlers. In between tasks, they are mind-wiped into a child-like state and live in a futuristic laboratory, a hidden facility nicknamed "The Dollhouse". The story follows Echo, who begins, in her mind-wiped state, to become self-aware."

This sounds awesome, with a huge potential scope. I am excited, and so should you be. The trailer can be seen below, and boy does it look good.
