No stranger to creating TV shows that gain cult followings before early cancellations, Joss Whedon hasn't been able to catch a small-screen break since Buffy The Vampire Slayer came to an end. One of his failed attempts was Dollhouse, a sci-fi drama on Fox that routinely buckled under its own weighty concept, yet never lost its entertainment factor.

A large part of the credit goes to leading woman Eliza Dushku, whose turn as a brain-wiped "active" (attractive people programmed to embody whatever fantasy rich folks pay for) gave the underutilized actress plenty of role-playing opportunities. Naturally, the kinkier ones (see above) remain our favorites.
