I still love you, Joss, even if you're an ass sometimes.

I watched the unaired pilot, and Epitaph One from Dollhouse.

OMG, awesome. Felicia Day is still adorable. And the whole set up was incredible, and fun. Amy was CREEPY and awesome. Also I think the unaired pilot was better than the one that aired - I liked Topher better as a darker asshole than what he was in the shown series. And seeing him severely screwed up in the unaired ep I think made more snse when you look at him as starting out more like he was in the unaired pilot.

From what I understand, that's now an AU future that the actual series won't follow, but I think it was a great standalone episode. And a very creepy endgame scenario that touched on the outcome of the technology that's glossed over on the series usually, and the amoral nature of the whole thing.

I had better thoughts on it earlier, but I lost them somewhere.

I'm looking forward to the next season now though, even more. (I think one of the things that made the unaired Ep so strong was the fact that the focus wasn't on Echo for a lot of it, honestly.)
