Sorry for the delay in getting this review up. Real life intruded last night, and by the time I got done typing up my less-than-inspired review for the less-than-inspired dollhouse, I was just too tired to do anything else. Anyway, just watched the episode on Hulu (http://www.hulu.com/watch/62359/terminator-the-sarah-connor-chronicles-t... if you ain't seen it yet) and here we go:

TV REVIEWS: Battlestar Galactica: "Daybreak, Part 1" (Season 4, episode 19)

After several months of cooling our heels in Earth Orbit, not doing anything, and after several weeks of randomly moving the scrabble tiles back and forth along the tabletop, but not actually progressing the story, suddenly we get moving again.

This episode was something of a format-breaker, divided somewhat randomly between the present and the past with an extended series of flashbacks.

TV REVIEWS: Dollhouse: "True Believer" (Episode 5)

This is a quandry of an episode. It's yet another stand-alone mission, yet while it doesn't feel like it's moving the (As yet theoretical) series arc forward, it feels somewhat less random than the spate of sub-par episodes that have come before it.

EPISODE REVIEW: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: "Ourselves Alone" (Season 2, Episode 17)

I gotta' tell you, these friday nights are wearing me down. Three shows bing-bing-bing is borderline too much, borderline over-stimulation. Then writing up the post-game show is kind of time consuming and grueling. I mean, I can do it, it's not like having a real job, but it's a lot to hold a play by play of all three of these shows in my feeble brain for the five hours or so it takes to watch 'em and write 'em up. If my writing is suffering as a result, I apologize. It'll get 30% easier in just a couple more weeks.

Wow!

You know, it's easy to forgive massive missteps like last week when they completely knock it out of the park like they did tonight! Seriously.

Echo is programmed to be an ass-kicking backup singer for a Riana-like singer that someone is trying to kill. Sierra, the blonde Japanese girl, is assigned as her backup. They infiltrate the singer's agency separately and with no real difficulties, until it becomes apparent that Rianna *Wants* to die, and is encouraging her stalker/executioner. Said whackjob kidnaps Sierra, and so Echo endangers the singer to rescue the other active, and save the day. This they then do.

Meanwhile, in the Helo plot, Paul the FBI guy gets set up by his Russian Mob informant, and is shot and hospitalized.
