Diane and Ray are art lovers, always after the next big thing, something amazing, something shocking, something unique. They find it in Willie, a boy who is…normal. For, in a world where everyone is a special and uniquely engineered snowflake, what exactly, is special and unique anymore?

Also, Rish and Big do a post-mortem on Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse.” How was it? Any favorite moments? Did it live up to its potential? And FOX did cancel it, didn’t they?
