"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.

This show is an interesting take on the classic sci-fi conspiracy tv show. the character of Paul Turner played by Tim Guinee is very well played. Because the show was/is written by the "X-files" gang it would have been very easy for Guinee to turn Turner into a Mulder-like character,(Mulder and Turner are written virtually the same) however Guinee saves his character and makes him much more realistic. Guinee turns his character into a man searching for a way to avoid being trapped between to organizations who are keeping the truth from him instead of into a raving maniac who sees little green men in the bushes.(sorry Mr.Duchovny) All in all this show is far better than I even dreamed it could've been, why it was cancelled to begin with is a mystery to me but now that it's back it's great. Oh and by the way it's on The Sci-Fi channel, you'll have to check your listings though.
