User Reviews

TV needs this kind of originality...

"Lazarus Man" had such an original plot that I was rapt at every episode. The mystery was intriguing and the pacing of the mystery was suspenseful. I also liked Robert Urich as Lazarus. His heartfelt performance was only made more poignant by his subsequent illness.

The plot involved a man who wakes up in a shallow grave with no memory of his past. As the show evolves he is haunted by the past he cannot remember. He begins to remember fragments of his past life and the conspiracy to kill president Lincoln. He was there that night at Ford's Theatre, but he doesn't know why. This is only one of the masterful subplots that season this show. I miss it.
