A Conversation about Eliza
Joe: "Okay, here's the thing about Dollhouse. I love Eliza Dushku like a crazy person, but I completely don't care about this show."
Jeff: "You're such a straight boy."
Jeff: "Seriously, I like her too, but when she's on TV, I'm automatically like, 'Uh, straight boy show.'"
Joe: "But do straight boys even know who she is? I feel like she's a parody of a straight boy fantasy who only gay boys know about."
Jeff: "Hmm, that could be true."
Joe: "Like, straight boys don't know about Faith and Buffy."
Jeff: "So she's the gay boy's version of Jessica Alba in Dark Angel."
Jeff: "Like, instead of her being a gay man in a straight girl's body, she's a straight girl as invented by the gay mind."
Joe: "And exclusively appreciated by the gay mind."
Jeff: "Interesting thesis, Herr Reid."
Joe: "I may put that on my blog. Because that's how cool I am."
I've got my thoughts on this week's Dollhouse (and the rest of the week's TV) in the sidebar. Feel free to comment on them all right here.
