The Invisible Man 

Having nothing to do with H.G. Wells novel beyond the premise of a scientist making himself invisible, this is a TV-series pilot which even changes the characters' names.

Storyline

Dr. Daniel Westin was a brilliant scientist working for an American thinktank who discovered a method to turn objects invisible. Not wanting his notes to fall into the wrong hands (including those of the U.S. Government), he destroyed all evidence of his discovery, and turned himself invisible to test it. Unfortunately, he didn't know how to turn himself visible again, so he wore a (extremely realistic) mask in public while searching for a cure. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

If a person were to become invisible he would be blind, as the retina would be invisible, light would pass right through it without any resistance. Without light hitting the retina, the person could not see anything around them. See more »

McCallum shines in this excellent series.
26 October 2000 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

I caught a marathon of this show on the Sci-Fi Channel in September 2000 and I must say I was amazed. David McCallum shows his range by playing a scientist who turns himself invisible and destroys his project so the military will not get a hold of it, then spends the next thirteen episodes trying to rediscover the process to lead a life of normalcy. Helped by his wife (the excellent Melinda Fee, who was last seen playing a Fembot in 'The Bionic Woman'), the couple pay for their lab time by being hired out as investigators and/or spies.

There are a few problems with the series (wheither McCallum is wearing anything when invisible or not--I think that could be a major problem, since he was wearing something when he became invisible) but overall it is better written and acted than it's successor, the entertaining "Gemini Man" starring Ben Murphy.

The only real shame is that this series is not aired more on the Sci-Fi Channel. A real treat to any science-fiction fan.
