According to the article on io9.com entitled “Joss Whedon’s Dolls will Resolve Your Bi-Curious Feelings,” Whedon will be playing by a new set of rules for his upcoming show. In “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” Whedon and the other writers had a rule that magic could not change the sexuality of an individual. Lauren Davis, author of the article, cites Whedon as saying, “On this show, people’s personalities are being completely overwritten. When someone hires an active, what they’re basically doing is hiring somebody for an experience that absolutely nobody in the world will ever know about including the person that you went through it with…If you don’t think that at least a third of the people who hire Actives are not bi-curious, you’re naive.”
I guess that means that viewers will not be seeing the same themes and problems as they did on Buffy and that we will be seeing Dolls who will be forced to go against their natural sexual preferences. We have also heard that Echo and some of the other Dolls might not forget everything they do on assignment, so what kind of problems will that pose? I think we are going to get another entertaining and thought provoking show from Mr. Whedon.
The shows starts Friday the 13th on Fox.
