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. His only allies are his ... Written by Anonymous

Quality show, now airing in Finland
15 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

Strange World recently started airing in Finland, naturally we're seeing all the episodes (though I think the airing order of the episodes is messed up, that's a bit strange). It's a very good show, so I was surprised to find out how it was pulled off the air after only three episodes aired in the States. Sorry, guys. It's interesting that ABC also pulled the plug on another show I liked, "My so-called life", starring Claire Danes. That was a great, clever show, too.
