Storyline

"The X-Files" writer/executive producer Howard Gordon presents an exploration of a nefarious world where "big business" funds "big science," and the answers Paul Turner finds lead to more questions than have ever been imagined. After exposure to chemical weapons during the Gulf War, ex-Government scientist Turner spent six isolated years fighting for his life until an enigmatic Asian woman saved him with a miraculous cure... that lasted only temporarily. Ever since, the illness has regularly returned to ravage Turner's body until the woman mysteriously reappears to provide another dose. After a six year absence, Turner returns to the Army as a Special Investigator in charge of tracking down the Frankensteins of the world. Turner's belief that the government is too slow and inefficient to protect us from the unchecked advances of science proves to be all too true in this show that features such ripped- from-the-headlines fare as cloning and genetic engineering.

Great show - same, sad ending
9 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's too bad that great shows like this one and other great sci-fi shows are tossed to the side by executives who don't or won't give them a chance to catch on like the X-files did. This one went the same way that Firefly, Surface and Invasion did and I, personally, think it STINKS! I realize that the execs for "free" TV have to make sure that the shows are going to attract advertisers in order to pay for them but, dang, it gets very frustrating to have it pulled just as you're really getting into it. Does anyone else out there feel the way that I do? Please post your comments here or on the Firefly section of IMDb. Thanks!
