FURTHER thoughts on Dollhouse

The more I thought about her tonight, the more something about the 'pop diva' character bugged me.

Not her being demanding with her dancers, disillusioned with fame (that is, up until she revealed she wanted her stalker to kill her). No, the worst bit was this: her manager -- her older male manager -- SLAPPED HER ACROSS THE DAMN FACE and got away with it. Neither Echo nor Rayna hit him back, and we never learn if he faced any repercussions. Um, that's beyond "thought-provoking sci-fi" -- that's just disturbing.
