This one even surprised myself, as I hated him through a great deal of Season 1 of Dollhouse. But, in the show’s – and I’m not exaggerating here – PERFECT second season, Topher became something really remarkable. His moral compass (or lack thereof) really became the heart of the series, as we followed his descent into psychological hell.
Plus, he was pretty frakkin’ hilarious, once I “got” his sense of humor.
Never have I pulled a total 180 on a character like that. #jossisboss
Conner… what’s Conner’s last name? Does he have one?
I get the purpose of the character and I don’t dislike the stories he was involved in, but I just HATE him as an addition to the cast. And it’s most likely the reason I can’t stand him as Peter on Mad Men either. He’ll always be Angel’s ungrateful son.
As a kid, I was all about Buffy and Angel, but these two had heart. And were each other’s best friends. And were actually there for each other through trying times. I’m sorry, guys, but that trumps high school romance any day.
Seriously, still haven’t seen death handled more beautifully by any television series since. Anyone who doubts Sarah Michelle Gellar’s ability as an actress, watch the first ten minutes of “The Body” and then get back to me.
I always thought, though she got the least amount of screen time, her story was the most interesting… And her being the only one left in the Dollhouse post-apocalypse in “Epitaph One” just creeped me the hell out. Did they ever exactly explain that one to us?
Definitely the most impressively developed female character in Whedonverse. She went from the hilariously superficial popular bitch in Buffy to a three–scratch that, four-dimensional character on Angel (and a crucial one at that). Sure, what was done to her character in the end is debatable (I, for one, loved EvilCordy all the same), but I’ve got to hand it to Joss for turning the comedic relief into a full-blown champion.
(And technically it’s still Day 2, on California time here)
In celebration of “JOSS IS BOSS” May madness (taking over the box office, just like I told you guise), I’m actually going to be doing one of these things, for the first time ever. And you can thank http://partyinmyeyesocket.tumblr.com/ for the idea!
