TV auteur Joss Whedon plays with the ultimate blank slate in his new sci-fi series Dollhouse.
The show from the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly revolves around a mysterious organization that erases the memories of men and women — so-called Actives — and imprints them with a different personality for each "engagement."
Programmed with somebody else's expertise, the Actives render exotic services for weird clients, then forget all about the mission once they return to their spa-like headquarters.
The catchy premise of the show, which premieres Friday on Fox, gives Whedon a nearly endless canvas for exploring sex, murder and other complicated ares of human existence.
