Storyline

Drs. Hayes and Lincoln are researchers in biological oddities for the Humanidyne company. When they find a man still alive after being frozen for 50 years, their greedy boss fires them and takes the Iceman to use for military experiments. Left without jobs, Hayes and Lincoln decide to get a group of "freaks" (including a telekinetic 17-year-old and a rock guitarist who shoots lightning from his hands) together to rescue the Iceman and stop their boss' reckless experiments. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Too Short-lived
7 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a show far ahead of its time. It was so memorable that, even though I wasn't even 12 at the time and only saw the pilot, I was able to recall the title and characters just now - I hadn't even thought about it in nearly 20 years and it came to me so easily! I was all set for it to be my favorite show but I don't think I managed to catch a 2nd episode. Back in those days I was starved for a scifi action series with the feel of a comic book. This show, The Incredible Hulk, and The Greatest American Hero were the only ones to come along until recent years when Joss Whedon stepped on the scene. Knight Rider tried but was a bit too... Starsky & Hutch-ish. Not very comic book-y. lol
