|02:08 pm - Dollhouse - wretched epilogue|
I just watched the last episode of Dollhouse - the epilogue, Epitaph Two, and dear gods it was utterly terrible. Wretched pacing, with long & dull pauses, gigantic plot holes, and general badness. It part, I see the problems as being similar to his almost equally wretched Firefly film - Serenity - Whedon can often (but far from always) manage to be very good when working on a long-time scale. However, when rushed to tie everything up in any hour or two, like in Serenity or Epitaph Two, he defaults to really bad cliches & utterly loses all sense of how to put a narrative together.
