“Dollhouse” is a must see for those with Netflix.

The series, with two seasons and 27 episodes, has been out for almost five years and still holds up when it comes to sci-fi television.

The show, created by Joss Whedon (The Avengers), follows Echo, played by Eliza Dushku (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), a young woman who had her memories erased in order to be used as an operative for a futuristic laboratory.

These operatives are used for various assignments from escort, protection to murder. The “Dolls” work within “Dollhouses” around the world in order to do the laboratories biddings.

Originally on Fox but canceled four episodes into the second season, “Dollhouse” was almost through production for the rest of season two and decided to finish the series anyways.

After being cut short, the show makes a very fast halt to its climax. The end result is a very fast paced last half of the second season, sending the viewer on a roller coaster ride to the ending.

The nonstop action has you on the edge of your seat begging for more information of Echo’s journey to reach self-awareness and attempt to break free from her “Dollhouse.”

The concept of the show and the creative mind of Whedon make this a great series for anyone to sit down and watch over a weekend or over the course of a semester.
