Storyline

The ever-so mellow Agent Sam Casey is in a satellite explosion and the radiation turns him invisible. He gets a watch that keeps him visible, and he can use it to switch from visible to invisible. He is given two assignments - The first is to transport a chemical, Tripolydine, purported to be the most efficient fuel. After the cover is blown on that, and Casey uncovers and stops the Tripolydine fraud, he must then stop terrorist Robert Denby from blowing up race cars. Written by Rebo Valence <rebo1234@aol.com>

Trivia

This movie was pieced together from two episodes of the failed Gemini Man (1976) TV series, plus some computer room footage and sound effects from the science fiction film Colossus: The Forbin Project (1970). See more »

Goofs

Sam states that the Tripolidine will explode and 'level an entire town.' When it finally explodes, it barely blows up the back of the truck. However, there is no reason why Sam would know exactly how explosive the bottle of Tripolidine was, as he had never seen it explode himself and was merely repeating what he'd been told. See more »

Be glad that this never made it big
1 April 2000 | by (L.A. CA) – See all my reviews

Someone at Universal thought it would be a good idea to make a show about a guy who can turn himself invisible. But, they made him a government agent, and made him mellow. Dr. Heywood Floyd, transported from the year 2001, assigns the ever cool and mellow Sam Casey to transport Murray from the MTM Show, from point A to point B. Oh there's also something about an unstable liquid. Anyway, Captain Stubing intends to doublecross our mellow hero and take off with ten million dollars. Then there's some scenes with Jim Stafford singing and driving a truck, Sam turning invisible and then finally a truck blowing up. Then we go into the fast paced world of raceing! There's the elusive Robert Denby and why he's elusive, we never find out. Dr. Floyd is harassed by his dentist and a woman named Cupcake plots and schemes. Sam and Buffalo Bill, as Stafford is known in this mishmash, throw some punches, drive some cars and thwart the machinations of the ever elusvie Robert Denby. Oh, and Abby is quite a gal. She's such a gal that she can view things in her lab and project her thoughts over space and time. Based on a story by H.G. Wells, and I think he's suing.
