To Be Real! Joss and the Female Character

If there one thing Joss Whedon does well, it’s writing female characters that are real and whole.

However, there has been some debate as to whether the female characters of ‘Dollhouse’ will “flesh out” to be of the same caliber as his previous “Lady Leads.” I have to admit, there have been a few things in the fledgling show that sparked debate amongst my mates as well. Interestingly enough, there are other fans of the show that are venturing out to write how they feel about ‘Echo’ and the girls of ‘Dollhouse.;

Alyssa Rosenberg of The Atlantic has written an interesting essay on Joss Whedon and his great ability to create such amazing female characters. Beyond that, she explores some of the aspects of ‘Echo’ and the ‘Dollhouse’ that many of us are thinking, but few are saying! Her article “Joss Whedon and the Real Girl” is a good read that will definitely cover some of the thoughts you may have already had!

Read. Think. Enjoy
