Trivia

The series started with this narration: "My name is Thomas Veil, or at least it was. I'm a photographer, I had it all: a wife, Alyson, friends, a career. And in one moment, it was all taken away, all because of a single photograph: I have it, they want it, and they will do anything to get the negative. I'm keeping this diary as proof that these events are real. I know they are...They have to be." See more »

Quotes

Dave 'Eddie' Powers: You don't have any friends. Everything they give you they can take back. Everything you thought you had, you don't.

I weep to think of what might have been...
5 May 2002 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

Thomas Veil was a masterpiece of television characterization. A man who, in the blink of an eye, had lost everything that meant anything to him, a statistic is a cunning game played by unseen puppetmasters. Whether or not the gruesome photograph of 4 men being hanged in Vietnam was the true reason behind his situation, we will probably never know. What we do know is that by limiting this show to one season, UPN has deprived us of something magical, something thought provoking. In a world of yuppie trash shows like Cops and Seventh Heaven, few can appreciate, or even remember Nowhere Man and the mark it made on those of us who followed Mr. Veil from one waypoint to another in search of the truth.
