There's also an interesting interview with Eric Stoltz.
I'm getting excited! I look forward to seeing the series. I hope we'll have many Daniel/Joseph scenes.
Also I'm getting worried about Dollhouse finale. I know it's silly...I blame Joss for making me care.
ETA: And here is another interesting interview, this time with composer Bear McReary, about his work on Crapica. I love what he said about the themes he composed for Daniel and Joseph, and how there's even forshadowing stuff concerning the characters in the Caprica's score !!!!
I'm sure I'm in the minority here but:

ETA: I forgot to post the link explaining the origins of the name Rossum. In the episode Clyde mentioned that it came from a play and here it is. It's probably old news for many viewers but I hadn't googled the Rossum name until today!
( Spoilerish thoughts behind the cut )
Now I'm off for I'm going to the cinema to see The Road.
But looks like, as we say over here, that "c'est donner de la confiture aux cochons".
Also Enver Gjokaj is the shining star of the show, and one of the best actors around. I can't wait to see him in that film starring Edward Norton and De Niro!
Mr Whedon does have some nose when it comes to actors but I really wonder whether Joss realised how fabulous guys like Chiwetel Ejiofor and Enver Gjokaj were when he hired them...
PS: I will try to gather my thoughts and post an elaborate review of "Public Eye" and the "Left Hand" later.
Also I came across ( these interesting pictures from SyFy Caprica website ) My first reaction was about Eric's hair that looks blondish rather than red on the picture; my second reaction was about his glasses (I love Daniel Graystone's glasses!) and finally I realised what Daniel was probably doing on the second pic...
( Speculation )
On the one hand I want to be in January so I can watch Caprica, on the other hand I don't want to say goodbye to Dollhouse. No matter the flaws that Dollhouse may have still, a tv-land sans Whedon is a less clever place to be.
And I can't think of any other tv actor that is as impressive as Enver Gjokaj these days. Watching him perform on screen in Dollhouse is like watching a Russian ballet dancer doing things that defy the laws of physics as if they were the most natural things in the world.
- the actors are great but Enver is fabulous. How cute Victor is!!!!
- where's Tahmoh? Do handlers get a day off when their dolls don't have any engagement?
- if Joss Whedon is not God, he is really an unconscious Catholic! Well, sort of.
Because now we know that, no matter how paradise-like the place may look and how painful the engagement may turn, the dollhouse is neither Heaven nor Hell, it's just a Purgatory. Yes, after the palimpsest on Chaucer's tales, now the show plays on Dante's territory. Once and again, it's all about the journey.

I should be marking instead of posting about Dollhouse but I have to write down some thoughts before I forget them. I usually use my Paul Ballard icon for such posts but my Medieval Demons icon seems to fit in today, since Tim Minear's script could be read as a palimpsest from The Canterbury Tales.
( La Belle Chose )
Victor-Chaucer-Paul is the best trio in my book. I've been saying for a year that Enver Gjokaj is an acting wonder and he was again fantastic! That man is a gem. What an amazing versatile actor! Tahmoh was also VERY good in the episode (he got the chance to show his skills at last), and extremely handsome. And tall!
Enver and Tahmoh are a great team, they both owned the episode.
After that one, I'm still torn between being a Paul/Adelle 'shipper or a Paul/Victor supporter. Perhaps Paul/Victor/Adelle is actually the right combination(and Adelle can watch, just like in my favourite scene from "La Belle Chose"!).
Joss, what you do to me!
Looks like that after all those years of letting us pondering the soul issue, Joss has finally given an answer: the soul lies in the milk !!!!

I guess that the show has grown on me for I missed it last week and I look forward to watching the new episode.
There was no Lost this week and I've been feeling tv show deprived even though I watched of course the first episode of the second season of Ashes to ashes.
( Spoilerish thoughts )
for Dollhouse and Terminator:The Sarah Connor Chronicles for it's likely that these tv shows won't get another season. Joss himself is quite pessimistic about a possible season 2 for Dollhouse and TSCC's final episode looked like a series finale.
It saddens me for I've come to like TSCC despite some stuff that bothers me, and the last two episodes of Dollhouse were good, not perfect but clever the way Joss can make a tv show clever, you know. *sigh*
( Born to run )
I watched my tv shows though.
( Lost )
I have also seen the two last episodes of Dollhouse and the Terminator:The Sarah Connor Chronicles ones.
( Dollhouse )( T: SCC )
( TtSCC did manage to surprise me )
And now let's speculate about Joss' new baby.
( Dollhouse didn't surprise me at all but I enjoyed it nonetheless )
