Subject: Dollhouse - Epitaph One (1x13)

Observers: John Pavlich, Kevin Bachelder

Record Date: January 25, 2012, 07:24 PM

Plot Summary: Jumping ahead ten years after the events of "Omega", a small group of anti-tech rebels enter the derelict Dollhouse to discover the truth behind the dystopian world they live in, and how much of the population became imprinted killers or mind-wiped vessels.

Note: Kevin Bachelder, co-host of Tuning Into Sci-fi TV, as well as Active Architecture, a Dollhouse retrospective (also check out my appearances on Kevin's podcast, Saturday B-Movie Reel here and here), returns to the podcast, this time to examine the thirteenth episode from Dollhouse's first season. We discuss the more unique elements of this polarizing episode, including the video format and editing, the colorful dialogue and the new cast of characters. Also of note, I mention in this episode, the similarities between fonts used in body art for different characters. Upon closer inspection after this recording, I realize now there is more of a difference in styles than I first thought. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the episode on your DVD.
