Friday "Night" Video

Joss Whedon's Dollhouse had its season (series?) finale last week and, while the show is still a terrible mess of interesting ideas combined with mediocre actors and dull storylines, it did get significantly better as the show wore on. I can't quite give it my stamp of approval, nor will I shed a tear if FOX goes ahead and cancels it, but television is a better landscape with a Whedon-made show on the here's hoping they bring it back. In the finale, Whedon makes great use of Beck's cover of Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometimes...originally put to use in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Given that the premise of Dollhouse revolves around the technological ability to wipe one's mind, it's an apt homage...and a haunting song.
