Storyline

Ed would like to be a normal teenager. Unfortunately, Ed has been used for intelligence enhancing research, and is extremely smart as a consequence. Equally unfortunately, the chemicals used in the research are affecting his brain in such a way that he'll be dead on his 21st birthday unless he finds a cure. With this in mind, he escapes from the research facility. The research facility is none too happy about this, and tries to recapture him. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Left me wanting for more.
31 January 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I loved watching this series. It made me think and almost wish this could happen to me. This, IMO, is a major precurser to the series Dark Angel in thought context, and makes me appreciate both more. I only wish I could watch it over again, just to refresh my memory.
