(SPOILER) Press release for Dollhouse 1x08 "Needs". Judging by the spoilerish synopsis, I think this episode is going to rock! Good choice to include it on the screeners. Things are definitely starting to kick into higher gear in the near future.

Interesting stuff. Sounds almost Prisoner-esque.
Holy crap! 8 episodes in!

It's all an experiment, isn't it.
Holy Spoilers Batman! Obviously the tag was there but I was not expecting that big of a shock. I'm pretty excited for it....
Whew, very spoilery! I'm looking forward to it.
I'll say what I've said here before - when things say 'spoilers' on here, there's gonna be actual spoilers nowadays. I know there was a period of many years where 'spoilers' meant very little as there was no TV show, but it's reaching the point with Dollhouse where Stuff Happens.
Oh, wow! Didn't expect that!

I can tell this is going to be awesome.
I love that Joss is doing this now as opposed to like, a couple of years down the road or the final episode as some might do.

The problem is spoiler tags are used too liberally. There's no way to tell when something is an actual spoiler or just a mini-hint. We need coloured grading systems or something.
Well usually if there are major spoilers, the poster will say so, along with the spoiler tag. That wasn't the case here, so I think that most people didn't think it would be that insane a spoiler.
If there were a colored system, this would be a Code Red spoiler.
Wow! Damn. It looks like it's fanwritten, or like it's a synopsis for a series finale.
I've added a caveat to the entry but really it's just a synposis. They're not going to give the entire plot away. So really not that big of a deal.
Indeed, this one isn't really that big a deal (who says they succeed?) - I was just forewarning people there's some big stuff coming up and some of will end up getting out as it always does. And it'll spoil the show.
Yes the Lost tie-in will be a shock to many fans.
It's not really a huge spoiler, it's just surprising that something like that is happening so soon.

From here on however, I'm not reading any more press releases. I think I'd prefer to be to be entirely surprised by the last 5 episodes.
I would only want a Lost-tie in if it was written by Brian K. Vaughan. I do not otherwise care for the show at all.
In other news: this ep sounds awesome.

Will this episode air after Prison Break? As that would seem apt.
Epguides says no. I was already imagining some awesome "This Friday...THEY ESCAPE!" promo's.
Yikes! That was very unexpected? So soon? Fantastic!
it will so be a one episode thing.... perhaps a controlled experiment

Sorry. I was so excited by the synopsis that I didn’t even thought of a giving an extra warning about the huge spoilers.

But then again, as Simon and gossi said, maybe they aren’t that huge anyway. I mean, this is an official FOX press release, so one would assume that they wouldn’t include in it information that would be too pivotal. After all, the aim is to intrigue the viewer, not to ruin his viewing experience.

Plus if one doesn’t want to be spoiled than they probably shouldn’t read press releases at all.
This one's written by Tracy Bellomo, I think. That's the first script of a new-to-the-Whedonverse writer on Dollhouse. I'm very looking forward to it.

ETA: Promotional Photos are up too.

I think that the photos deserve their own post on the main page, because here they will probably get overlooked by many people. ;-)
