''Dollhouse'' (2009-2010) is a 26-episode CyberPunk show by Creator/JossWhedon, which began airing in February 2009 on [[FridayNightDeathSlot Fridays at 9 p.m.]] on {{Fox}}. [[NetworkToTheRescue Against all odds]], it was renewed for a second season, but low UsefulNotes/{{ratings}} led to its {{cancellation}}. Luckily Whedon anticipated the cancellation and was able to score a full 13 episode second season, managing to get a complete plot and some closure out of its final episodes, after the cancellation order was given.

** Under the effects of a MushroomSamba, Boyd plays an excerpt from [[FryderykChopin Chopin's]] ''Fantasie-Impromptu'' in C-sharp minor, demonstrating that while he's not at the pro level, he's definitely had years of piano experience. (TruthInTelevision: Harry Lennix played that scene himself. Also true: the rest of the ''Fantasie-Impromptu'' is a great deal harder!)

* TrickedIntoEscaping: A variation is pulled on Echo and the other major Actives in "Needs." Unlike most incarnations of this trope, it is at least partly for their benefit; the Actives are imprinted with [[spoiler:amnesiac versions of their original personalities]] in a sort of wish fulfillment exercise, allowing them to gain some measure of closure for [[spoiler:issues which led to their entering the Dollhouse to begin with]]. Of course, the Dollhouse also expects to benefit by letting some of the more... free thinking Actives "get it out of their systems."

* IndenturedServitude: It's never called out by name, but this is what the Dolls amount to. They have all signed contracts with the Dollhouse to give away their bodies for a certain in number of years, during which they are [[BrainUploading fitted with new personality downloads]] and hired out to rich clients on 'engagements', often sexual in nature. Of course, these contracts are illegal by modern standards. One ex-doll even tries to go public after her years of indentured servitude are up to expose the Dollhouse.

* MindHive: Both Echo and her EvilCounterpart Alpha eventually transform into a new type of being with multiple personalities simultaneously inhabiting the same person. When Echo is asked if she would want to go back to her original personality Caroline, she states that she is no longer that person and is now her own entity.

* FanDisservice: Too most people find the idea of a brainwashing technology used by a shadowy organization to run a sex-slave operation in every major city in the world for anything else to really apply.
