Doll House

Symbolism in Dollhouse see: The Robotic Agenda ritual & ritual 2 by PimPb1420

Dollhouse is an American science fiction television series created by Joss Whedon. It premiered February 13, 2009 on Fox.

Eliza Dushku plays a young woman called Echo, a member of a group of people known as "Actives" or "Dolls". The Dolls have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas, including memory, muscle memory, skills, and language, for different assignments (referred to as engagements). The new persona is not an original creation, however, but an amalgam of different, existing personalities. The end result incorporates some of the flaws, not just the strengths, of the people used as templates. The Actives are then hired out for particular jobs – crimes, fantasies, and the occasional good deed. On engagements, Actives are monitored internally (and remotely) by Handlers. In between tasks, they are mind-wiped into a child-like state and live in a futuristic Dormitory / laboratory, a hidden facility nicknamed "The Dollhouse". The story follows Echo, who begins, in her mind-wiped state, to become self-aware.

I never seen Dollhouse till last night, after doing a quick google this morning and all the mirror images, i was not one bit surprised that she is called ALICE.

Shes even dressed like Alice

Echo abandons an assignment when she is drawn to a nearby college where the entire campus is being affected by a mysterious memory drug. While infected her mind and the other dolls where connected to the point where she seen & experienced the same things as the other doll who went to the university. (Which is linked to Zombis)

The Rossum Corporation
The Rossum Corporation, and the Rossum Building on campus, takes its name from Karel ├łapek's 1931 science-fiction stage play R.U.R., later translated to English under the full title of Rossum's Universal Robots. The play introduced (and popularized) the term robot in reference to automatons. In the play, the robots are not purely mechanical systems, but rather organic creatures assembled in a factory, more resembling the current definition of "clone" than that of "robot".

Some interesting sayings used in this show in reference in going over the rainbow!

Rossum Robots; nice. The dolls and Dark Angel both remind me of Alias, the show that gave Jennifer "Elektra" Garner's first big break. In the first episode, she snaps into active action, awakens, with the Britney Spears/Natalie Portman hot pink wig... The character of Sam (fake name?) in the Alice in Wonderland episode confused me though; I felt like I missed the symbolism. That and when Echo sees a red motorcycle and calls it a dragon...
