A small thought about Dollhouse... and a confession about The Wire

It occurs to me that one of the reason why I'm dissatisfied with Dollhouse is an area of dishonesty - it's claimed, repeatedly, that male and female Dolls are given the same sort of assignments, but so far we've never see any evidence whatever that the male Dolls are being used for prostitution, whereas we repeatedly see Echo in this role.

And The Wire. Well, I really tried, for three nights this week, but I'm afraid I really don't find this show engaging my attention at all. Part of it is that I have trouble understanding a lot of what the characters are saying, most of it is that my memory for character names and faces is REALLY bad, and I have major problems following the story at all. Add to that that the BBC are showing it after 11 PM, when my attention span is not at its best, and non-comprehension is near total. Sorry, but I think I'm going to have to sit this one out.
