I am not too patient with new TV series. If a show doesn’t grab my attention by the second or third episode, I usually quit watching. But I stuck with Dollhouse — and my patience has paid off in spades. I mean, the concept has been kind of interesting all along, but in Episode 6 it was like Captain Whedon said, “Engage,” and the show shot into warp speed. Watch. This. Show.
If you’re already a fan, btw, be sure to check out Dara’s weekly mini-caps. They really must be read to be believed.

On playing such a physical role:
Suddenly, I feel very much like fighting.
