Playing with the Dollhouse

I am optimistic that Fox will air multiple episodes of Dollhouse. It sounds like it could be super-cool. If you want to follow the press, check out my Daylife feed: click here.
What is Dollhouse?
A) A place to hang your tiny jacket
B) A way to spend Friday nights in you're pathetic and have been tuning into Fox Friday nights for 16 years on faith that they will air something geeky.
C) A TV show from Joss Whedon (scribe of Toy Story, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and many more).
D) B & C

(from good people at Wiki-- the same people that gave me the good news that elephants are now being bred for meat by urban Alberta farmers):

In Dollhouse, Eliza Dushku plays a young woman called Echo, a member of a group of people known as "Actives" or "Dolls." The Dolls have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas, including memory, muscle memory, skills, and language, for different assignments. They're then hired out for particular jobs, crimes, fantasies, and occasional good deeds. On missions, Actives are monitored internally (and remotely) by Handlers. In between tasks, they are mind-wiped into a child-like state and live in a futuristic dormitory/laboratory, a hidden facility nicknamed "The Dollhouse". The story follows Echo, who begins, in her mind-wiped state, to become self-aware.

Beyond Dushku's character, the show will also revolve around the people who run the mysterious "Dollhouse" and two other "Dolls", Victor and Sierra, who are friendly with Echo (the names are simply letters in the phonetic alphabet). Although the Actives are ostensibly volunteers, the operation is highly illegal and under constant threat on one end from Paul Ballard, a determined federal agent who has heard a rumor about the Dolls, and an insane rogue Active on the other.
