I personally really like to read supernatural/fantasy stuff. Dramas are fine, as long as they are not strictly a drama. I hate to READ that in a VS. I like things with great character stories but also a rich mythology and a great ongoing plot.

I must say that I find it shocking that Dollhouse and Smallville are being compared at all, haha. But, I hate Smallville; I personally find it boring, repetitive, and....kinda stupid I gave up on it about...two years ago, I think.
Dollhouse, on the other hand, I adore. The first five episodes were okay, with some episodes that were at least enjoyable ("The Target" and "Gray Hour") while others were horrendous ("Stage Fright", "True Believer"). From "Man on the Street" on, I must admit that I was hooked. I loved the second half of Season 1, and "Briar Rose" and "Epitaph One" were absolutely amazing.
Season 2 was a different story, cause that's when it became a really great show, for me, at least. "Vows" had that amazing story with Claire; really heartbreaking and amazingly well-written and acted! And "Belonging", delving into the real characters of the series, which continued into "Stop-Loss". We had the introduction of great new characters. I loved Bennett, and the return of Dominic, Clyde, Boyd's reveal, it was all so good for me. "The Hollow Men" was rushed a bit, but I still liked it much more than most people in the fandom. And the finale, "Epitaph Two: Return", was simply gut-wrenching yet happy. I loved it so frickin' much.
So, I am really sad the series is over. For me, at least, Dollhouse was the best show of the year.
