TV show: Dollhouse (Cancelled after 2 seasons)

So I've been watching dollhouse from my brother's Netflix and am addicted. Well, I just want to finish it. But the whole idea of this show is that there is an underground, 'invisible' dollhouse where humans have their memories completely erased and are then used to fulfill missions in order to satisfy rich dollhouse clients by having their brains programed with memories of another person. This means they can be a prostitute, a lover, a child, a scientist, an assassin, anything. Their contracts expire in 5 years, and they are considered 'volunteers' because they choose to sign this contract. The thing is, the only reason they would agree to it is because they don't have anything else and are stuck between this option of becoming a doll, or something worse like jail.

It sounds awesome, but I don't know if I would want to do it. Your body is used for so many outrageous things (sex, murder) and then once the contract is over, you don't even know what you've done.
