The burns soon just healed magically.. Written by Jeff Cloward

An unsold pilot typical of 80's TV

This isn't a great movie by today's standards, but is a typical example of an 80's TV pilot. The series never got made but if it had it would probly have been as good as Knight Rider, Street Hawk, Gemini Man etc.. or any other action adventure series of it's time that featured an ordinary guy gaining some machine or super power and then working for a secret government organisation.

It's fun to watch now as we get used to seeing Scott Bakula in his second major TV series starring role, as Captain Jonathan Archer in Enterprise.

The UK Sci-Fi channel have recently shown I-Man (March 2003) and it was released on VHS in the UK back in the 80's. It's long since deleted but you should be able to get yourself a copy like I did.
