This was a sci-fi show about a guy and his son having super human healing powers. They got this power from being too close to a van that had some kind of chemical in it and it exploded, causing the guy to be badly burned and having to go to the hospital. The burns soon just healed magically.. Written by Jeff Cloward

I knew I wasn't crazy
29 March 2000 | by (Palatine, IL) – See all my reviews

I was laughed at when I said I remembered a show from the 80's where a guy was in an accident and absorbed some chemical that could regenerate his cells so he could never be hurt or get tired. Obviously, the show was short-lived because no one remembered it. I didn't know the guy was Scott Bakula either. I'm sure this show isn't on tape anywhere, but I loved it when it was on. Kind of a Six Million Dollar Man take-off. I win my bet.
