I'm concerned we're going to have to see that hatchet faced weasel as an innocent doll now. . .

Blech!

But I wonder if Echo isn't turning into the exact opposite of Alpha.  HEading toward an event, but one where she'll be alpha's enemy and even partly sympathetic to the "purpose" of the Doll-House.  You knwo the heavy handed purpose they keep hinting at with a baseball bat that we still don't know. :P

I liked the episode a lot. I enjoyed how "boot-to-the-head" the FBI/November segment was. I could have used a little more build up to his craziness, but the end result was cool. They really need to get Ballard more involved. People complain about his arrogance, but I enjoy it.

The part that bugged me - and it seems like there is always a small SOMETHING that drives me crazy (which drives me crazy that there is ALWAYS something) - was how terrible a shot Mr. Head-of-Security(TM) was. And I felt it was too obvious that everyone accepts him as the mole who is doing the re-programming. He wasn't that smart. It's pretty obvious there is another mole.

Alpha is a toad.  It's really hard to believe he's a doll.  What is facinating the foreshaddowing that the doctor might be a doll.  Also, Alpha's impression of an agoraphobic ergonomics engineer, looked rather like an impression of Fran Krantz.  Just a thought but what if alpha is the real Topher and Krantz is a doll with an edited version of Topher. . .  Mad scientist uses his gimcrack on himself first, classic horror flick stuff.

Yeah, Alpha played everyone and the acting was superb, but the man's still a toad and in the company of Dushku, Williams, Gjokaj and Acker, he really doesn't fit.  The company obviously goes for really beuatiful people with the type of face that eye witnesses can't identify easily.  Tudyk doesn't fit.  Laurie is a stretch for that matter, but the prototype should have been even prettier (e.g. Travis fimmel only able to act.).   Maybe someone imported from daytime.  All My Dolls and Toys, or As the Dollhouse Turns.

I don't think he's a toad. I find Tudyk attractive. Not in the youthful, edgy way the others are, but nevertheless, he's a cutie.

Tudyk is awesome. I really wish he got more parts.

I just read the most awesome interview about where Whedon pitched the part to Tudyk. It was at Nathan Fillion's house...after playing Pictionary...

Pictionary? With Whedon, Fillion, and Tudyk? How do I get into THOSE parties?

I really loved this episode, and I'm wondering if Alpha's relationship to Echo goes all the way back to when she was Caroline.

Steve, link me that interview!

lol, LOTS of funny quotes this episode. My personal favorite was schizophrenic Alpha.
"I'm not bluffing!"
"We're not bluffing!"
"Okay, I'm bluffing-"
"-But the rest of us-"
"We mean business!"

It was okay, except for the fact that those "wedges" looked an awful lot like a winchester drive, a device that wouldn't survive a fall like thet even if someone caught it.

I liked those quotes, but I think my favorite was "Caroline!"
