Dollhouse: Starter Pack on iTunes USA. You can now buy the first five episodes for $4.99. In related news, 'Epitaph One' will be available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon On Demand later on today.

That's kind of sad that a lot of people will take this deal to try out the show, only to be cut off right before the show actually gets particularly good. If they had gone one more episode for the starter pack then we'd have a lot more people hooked. Ah well.
Great. And I just bought the S1 DVD essentially FOR Epitaph One. Sigh.
I still find this depressing: "iTunes is licensed for reproduction of noncopyrighted materials or materials the user is legally permitted to reproduce. Purchases from the iTunes Store are available only in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The iTunes Store #1 music download store according to Nielsen SoundScan."

Anyway, am I the only one who think that having a Starter Pack beginning from Man on The Street would work better than starting from Ghost, you know it's more in tune with what the Shows is much more about.
But if I'm to have only 5 episodes, I wouldn't be sure what to cut down from the back 6/7 of the season.

Yes but you'd probably need a recap feature that summarised the first five episodes.
Having just watched Epitaph One, finally, I agree with those who say it is the best ep of Season One. Brilliant all around.
ahhh I've been checking itunes all day and still no sign of it. I've waited this long I can wait another few hours, right?...deep and out...
Hey!!! Why can't I get E1 on itunes yet??

Grrr! Argh!

Also, will the original pilot be on itunes????

I'd tend to doubt the pilot will show, as that's considered an extra, while E1 is considered part of the season.

It's supposed to be on Amazon Video now, and it's listed, but it only gives a "document not found". No idea WTF is up with iTunes.

But that iTunes starter pack would be good for Double DOLLHOUSE Days.
