Eliza Dushku's Mirrored Life in "Dollhouse". Our vampire slayer-turned-identity-less doll brings up the similarities between her career and the plot of "Dollhouse."

Semi-relatedly, do we have a start date for production on episode 2, provided the actors strike does not happen?
Was just over at another board where some posters objected a while back to ED's equating what's going on with the Actives to her situation, that it's too facile. They're saying basically that the Actives' situation is closer to slavery and rape, and not only that, that the whole concept has the potential to be deeply problematic, even if the idea behind it is that Echo and the others eventually rebel against what's happening to them.
Yay for future wank?

Is anyone pointing out to them the the premise was a direct result of Eliza and Joss talking about her life?
If Eliza like feels it derives from like her real biography then she's like the only judge who can like make that determination, like right?


Yeah, I can see the idea of Joss 's having "a woman deep inside him." In some ways. It happens. I tend to think that, in somE very, very different ways, that applies to me.

I think I must be extra-irritable today (from lack of sleep from watching Dr. Horrible a billion times late last night), but that whole "too facile" argument sets my teeth on edge. The story came out of Joss and Eliza making that "too facile" connection with Eliza's situation. God. Perhaps I should dial back the coffee quaffing.

edited to say that onetruebix beat me to it.
