Sex Could Have Saved Dollhouse


At least that's what creator Joss Whedon said, in a new interview with Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune. According to Whedon, Fox "got twitchy" about the idea of showing Dollhouse's main character Echo (Eliza Dushku) in sexually compromising situations "about five minutes after they bought" the series. Whedon continued, "The idea of sexuality was a big part of the show when it started and when that fell out, when the show turned into a thriller every week, it took something out of it that was kind of basic to what we were trying to do."
