Now, normally I might rail against such a blatantly sexualized marketing campaign. I mean, it's not like these photos really help explain the intricate premise of “Dollhouse.” Unless, of course, the show is about Eliza Dushku being naked. In which case, dude, I think they have a hit. But, I'm OK with the campaign for a few reasons. 1. Eliza is OK with the campaign. 2. Joss is OK with the campaign. And 3. The show is about “identity, brainwashing and perversion,” so now all the naked kind of makes sense.

Also exciting is Joss' discussion of sexuality on the show, particularly that “if you don't think that at least a third of the people who hire Actives are not bi-curious, you're naïve.” So, maybe the campaign should have included Eliza in an assortment of bi-curious shoes. Or, who knows, maybe these leather pants like to get drunk at parties and make out with their girlfriends.
p.s. While I was worried, at first about the show's Friday night timeslot, I now think coupling it with “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” is kind of genius. Lena, Summer, Eliza and all those tank tops for two solid hours on my TV? I may never leave the house on Fridays again. [Click the HQ button, thank me later]
