Sci-Friday - Take 8

Unforeseen circumstances kept us from watching anything last weekend, so... What did you think? (I won't be reading responses until I watch the episodes, but don't let that stop you.)

For tonight:

I liked both of 'em. Of the two, I thought T2.5 was the better show. My spoiler-filled review is here http://www.republibot.com/content/episode-reviews-terminator-sarah-connor-chronicles-%E2%80%9Cadam-raised-cain%E2%80%9D-season-2-episode-21 and it really was the best episode since I started watching the show again, around the first of the year. The AV Club review said this show would probably benefit from an abbreviated season like Lost, which would allow them to focus in on what they want to do, and not pad out the season with standalones and wouldn't stretch Ellison's "Helo" plot out to annoying lengths, and I mostly agree.

Dollhouse was better than the first five, but not nearly so good as the last two. Everyone seems to have liked it more than me, but I think the way they framed the story undercut a lot of the tension. I did like the romance angle, though. A lot. My spoiler-filled comments are online here if you wanna' look at 'em after you've seen it. http://www.republibot.com/content/episode-reviews-dollhouse-%E2%80%9Cneeds%E2%80%9D-episode-8
