Episode Info

The Joss Whedon series about agents for hire who receive personality implants for each mission -- and have their memories cleared once finished -- opens with Echo (Eliza Dushku) becoming a hostage negotiator in order to free a kidnapped girl, the daughter of a businessman (Kurt Caceres) who'd rather pay big bucks than go to the police. Meanwhile, an FBI agent (Tahmoh Penikett) finds his career threatened by his search for the illegal Dollhouse.

Critic Reviews for Ghost

The first episode lacked a certain energy Whedon's work usually has, and I felt myself thinking "this is interesting", without actually getting caught up in the story on a visceral level.

This is the weakest launch show I've seen for some time.

It's perhaps healthiest to watch Dollhouse's debut episode, "Ghost," with an eye towards the show's long-term potential than fuss too much over its current shortcomings.
