(SPOILER) E!'s Kristin Talks to Dollhouse Cast at PaleyFest. Spoilers and Spoilers and Spoilers galore! Don't say I didn't warn you, not super happy I read it.

I'm forcing myself not to read it! But I'll bookmark it anyway. ;)
How spoilerish? Really spoilerish or predictable spoilerish?
Note - the thread may contain spoilers. 'Cos, posts.
Cant see it.
I didn't think it was too spoilerish. There are some spoilers but not crazy omg we need a bigger boat spoilers.
There are minor character/relationship spoilers, no plot spoilers. It's really just the actors talking about their characters.
There always seems to be a problem accessing an E! Online link from outside the States.

If you're in the UK like me, try this link.
E!'s website still doesn't work from the UK, if anybody is wondering. It's been broken here for almost a year and they still haven't noticed.

That said, I just read it. I don't think it's particularly spoilery, to be honest. I mean, it has upcoming episode stuff and character moments, but no huge reveals.
No, I would sy there are some significant spoilers, like the fact that someone hires someone in the next episode (and who those someones are, and what the hiring is for).

Yeah there's some more spoilery spoilers in there.
I have a bookmark folder dedicated to Dollhouse spoilers. Can't wait until the season's over so I can start reading them. Not that I want the season to be over. I just mean I can't wait to read them when they're no longer spoilers. And then I'll start a folder for season 2 spoilers, and so it starts all over again.

Yes, I'm optimic.
About Mellie and Paul beeing doomed, well it's a Joss show after all.

Evil Joss.

BTW it's the first time ever from outside the US (Holland here) I can access the site without problems..

Dichen and Fran look SO hot out-of-character. I like the idea of As with Adelle and Laurence, I think it's importance to really humanize the "evil" officials of the Dollhouse.

4 Edits: Mostly failures.

@Krusher

I've always gotten a kick out of the fact that the concept of the Dollhouse lets Joss essentially create and kill a female character every week.
Spoilery spoilers wrapped in felted non-spoilers.
I'd like to know more about Topher's .

Too bad we're though!

I can't imagine Boyd ...

I think Topher and Dr. Saunders !

Yeah, because nothing is more amusing than dead chicks.

Ah, but what about non-spoilery spoilers? Those definitely exist for me personally as a definition, but I think they are probably a totally useless thing for discussion since everyone seems to have a different Spoiler Tolerance Threshold.
Holy Spoiler Batman!!! I should not have read this!!!! I so doing so well with not being spoiled with Dollhouse stuff but this two weeks off was killing me. And right before tonight's episode? Grrr me!

On to talking about the spoiler though. I was wondering what was damn special about Echo, other than the fact that she glitches. I can't wait to find out, and I wish we culd see Nolan get his ass handed to him. I wouldn't mind legalizing water-boarding for him.
Back in the old days, we'd be reading transcripts of the episodes before weeks if not months before they aired. Guess Mutant Enemy can now afford locks on their internal mailboxes.

Somehow that comment just made it so.
Mailbox locks are so 2005. I'm sure they just made it clear that any interns caught trying to smuggle scripts out would be sent for a treatment.

Those were much, much worse days. And TV fandoms are made dumber, more juvenile, and less generous (because less receptive to surprise) by spoilers.

We definitely need a thread dedicated solely to measuring the precise immaturity and lack of willpower required to read wild feed transcripts instead of waiting 20 hours and watching the goddamn episodes.

And yes, this is in part self-directed: I was the worst among my friends, and as much as my hints made things irritating for them, I completely screwed myself out of peak aesthetic experiences by reading spoilers. No matter how much people pretend it's not the case.

And what am I doing in this thread? Desperately trying not peek.
remember everybody no new Dollhouse episode tonight.
I knew something was going on

I don't have to think hard to see Boyd I think Boyd probably has a good analysis of Topher's character by now, and would see it coming if Topher wanted to do anything hideously inappropriate.

The absence of new developments doesn't necessarily mean that the story will drop off completely.

I was surprised at first by the quote about Paul and November, but the basis for their relationship has already been made kind of obvious.
Am I that spoiled that I didn't see any spoilers in there?

I think non-spoilery spoilers would be the twine that holds the non-spoiler-felted spoilery-spoilers together.

Well, regarding personal life...
Oh yes, the wildfeeds. I'd forgotten. I read them nearly every time. In retrospect it looks ridiculous that I couldn't wait twenty hours.

Then again, I still read the Dollhouse threads as new episodes air on the East Coast (I'm in LA). Those are more fun though, because everyone goes "OMG! What a twist!" leaving me thinking "What twist! Argh! How can I wait anothe rtwo hours to find out?"
I'm very intrigued by the prospect of Topher/Claire. It seems to be the relationship that would serve Topher's character best, what with her moral superiority and his persisting attraction to her. I also love what we've seen of Paul/"Mellie" so far.
