Asta 2

Character of the Month: Martin Klar



He makes evil look good.


Title: Dollhouse: Vows
Original Airdate: September 25th, 2009
Availability: Season 2 is now on DVD.

Synopsis: A mysterious and well funded corporation runs a number of underground establishments known as "Dollhouses" around the world. Working in these Dollhouses are individuals referred to as Actives, or Dolls, who have (supposedly voluntarily) been stripped of their memories and programed with temporary personalities and skills. Wealthy clients hire the Actives for various (and often dodgy) purposes. One Very Special Active is Echo (Eliza Dushku) who, unfortunately for those involved in the Dollhouse, is becoming increasingly self-aware as the series progresses. In the season 2 opener, Echo is tasked with marrying arms dealer Martin Klar (Jamie).

Worth Watching? Yes. On a superficial level, Jamie looks amazing. Also, for the first and, thus far, only time Jamie gets to play the bad guy.

Does he live or die? Lives! But given Martin is presumably facing a lengthy prison term and looks like Jamie Bamber, sucks to be him.
