[Post contains spoilers for Dollhouse episode 4, unrelated to the serial plot. THERE ARE SPOILERS IN COMMENTS.]
Hey Joss Whedon, Mr Feminist Icon dude, can I have a word in your shell-like?
There are fields of endeavour in which the vast majority of the experts are women. Those women possess knowledge gained through years of study and experience, and they bring something very worthwhile to the world. One of those fields of endeavour is midwifery.
When you’re attempting to portray a woman acting as an expert in that field, one of the better ways to do so convincingly is to hire an actual expert for an hour or so to cast an eye over your script. I’m led to believe this is standard operating procedure for TV producers who aspire to a modicum of quality in their art. It also tends to be a rather good way of not making an arse of yourself, as you did this week in the Dollhouse cold open.
This is assuming that you want us to believe that Dollhouse actives are actually programmed with expert knowledge and skills, which seems to have been the setup so far. On the other hand, if what you wanted to convey was “All the midwifery pseudoknowledge Echo was programmed with came straight out of a bad 1990s sitcom”, you did so very successfully.
(Whedoniocy! Now with pointless, gratuitous butch-dyke quips! HiLARious!)
Achieving a modicum of verisimilitude is not that hard. It’s not that expensive. And it wouldn’t have compromised your precious storyline in any way.
 Do we need an acronym for this yet? Cos I love “YAWP”. Very Dead Poets’.
