Quick Dollhouse Link

20 04 2009

This post on the complicated feminism of Dollhouse is one of the best analyses I’ve seen yet.  It took me a while to get on board with this show, but the last couple of episodes in particular have really convinced me that Whedon really is trying to address the issues that have been bothering me — and that those issues are meant to unsettle me.

Also, it seems like all I’ve been doing is posting about Dollhouse.  This is unfortunate, since I’ve also been reading a lot of Lois McMaster Bujold recently.  Jo Walton’s been posting over at Tor.com about the entire Vorkosigan series, and I recommend all the posts.  Bujold also turns up to comment, and just today Walton capped off the posts with an interview with Bujold, who tells us (among other things) that Miles dies at age 57.  Oh, Miles.  The thought of his death makes me far sadder than it ought.
