Dollhouse Finale Tonight

Sure, Joss Whedon's Dollhouse took waaay too long to get the action rolling, but the last two episodes finally live up to the hype that dissipated months ago--all it took was to bring in a Firefly alum (Alan Tudyk) as Doll-gone-wrong Alpha, and restore Eliza Dushku to bad-girl mode (the doe-eyed blankette approach requires, hate to say it, a much better actress). 

Tonight's finale "Omega" could be the last for Fox, which is reported to be 50/50 on bringing Dollhouse back for a second season. If not, this episode would be more conclusive than, say, Chuck's season finale (another geek-beloved series on the bubble); if it comes back, maybe Whedon will go all out as he has in the Season 1 homestretch. In which case, I'd say bring in the whole Firefly crew and make a Whedon party of it--it's a safe bet that Nathan Fillion won't be busy with Castle on ABC next season.
