Joss Whedon's Newest Baby

Can anyone explain to me what this is supposed to be about? It kind of looks like "My Own Worst Enemy," so I'm wondering if Whedon is a day late and a dollar short on this one...

Well, this was thought up by Joss (and partially Eliza) a year and a half ago pretty much. Basically, from what I've understood thus far, people give up around 5 years of their lives to earn big bucks working for this illegal operation. But the thing is, I don't think the applicants really know what all the Dollhouse gets them into from time to time. When they aren't imprinted with personalities for their missions, they are in a blank state - wiped clean. Dolls. Trouble is, Eliza's character Echo starts to remember things which will be a mystery itself - along with an FBI agent believing the Dollhouse does exist while most, or everyone else?, believe otherwise. And there's probably many other mysteries/secrets from what I'd guess. The idea for this came from Joss thinking about how everyone wants Eliza to be certain things, and well, that's the basic thought of where this came from.

Wow Gina. Thank you.

Sounds like a riff off the old "universal soldier" idea.

It's Joss Whedon! What more do you need? Everything he touches becomes cult gold.

After see the trailer on your blog, I investigated 'Dollhouse' and it seems Gina is right, but even though I am a great fan of Joss Whedon (love Angel and Buffy, even in reruns), it's a little confusing. It's kind of like suspended animation between gigs for the team members when memories (not sure where the memories come from or if they start as dreams) start to bleed in and that when the trouble begins.
