Storyline

Dr. Daniel Westin was a scientist working with a government thinktank known as the KLAE Corporation who was rendered invisible by a formula concocted by himself that was supposed to be used for matter transformation. Before he can return to normal, Westin discovers the federal government has plans to use his invisibility formula for warlike purposes, so he destroys the only formula. Unfortunately he has no way to become visible again, so, wearing a very realistic face mask and hands, he becomes an agent for KLAE, fighting crime and battling saboteurs, while simultaneously working in KLAE's laboratory with wife Kate to rediscover his formula. Walter Carlson was their sympathetic boss at KLAE. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

Due to a tight filming schedule many of the special effects scenes of where Dr Westin would undress on camera by removing or putting on his 'synthetic skin' adornments were actually done live on set. A camera would be set up and locked off in a studio where the scene was supposedly taking place whilst David McCallum would be filmed in the opposite corner of the same studio wearing a blue body suit against a blue background watching the action live and interacting appropriately with the rest of the actors on the other set. The camera crew superimposed him in real time onto the live other scene using the chroma key technique (similar to how weather forecasters work when standing in front of a blue/green screen whilst the data appears behind them. This not only saved a considerable amount of time in post production but also saved money. However the downside was that as the two images were filmed and recorded live then there were limited options for the editing crews to use and sometimes the quality of the merged video images appeared a bit fake (for example skin tones often did not look right) and it was impossible to correct due to the technical limitations of electronic television camera & videotape technology of the time.

too Intelligent of a Show, Relied on Plot more than Fisticuffs
21 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

When Dr. Daniel Westin is turned invisible from an experiment, he must now don a mask and gloves when he walks among people. Played by David MacCallum with longer hair that is blonde, he looks nothing like his character on the Man From Uncle. I remembered this show from its brief original run, and caught a half dozen episodes off Sci Fi Network a few years back and they are a marvel to behold. Melinda O. Fee as his cooperative scientist wife, who isn't a Charlies Angel in behaviour but is most definitely in looks, plays well off watching her husband disappear as he disrobes. Craig Stevens statue presence rounds it out nicely. But the show worked marvelously, relying on the moving camera either letting you know where Daniel was or giving his eye view as he approached a person or area. The show offered no camp, no humour, and no sexual bickering. One fantastic episode had Daniel offer his mask as an escape for a person he had to smuggle out of the enemy headquarters and he simply walks out beside him invisible. With the possible exception of the old Topper movie, there hasn't been anything like this show before or since.
