Storyline

Facing life without parole for a crime he ultimately didn't commit, crook Darien Fawkes is offered a pardon if he'll agree to participate in his brother's medical experiment: the insertion into his brain of a synthetic gland which secretes a light-bending substance called Quicksilver, which renders whoever or whatever is cloaked in it invisible. But Quicksilver also breaks down Darien's sanity without the regular injection of a counter-agent, and when terrorists gun down everyone involved in the project and steal all the relevant information, Darien is recruited by the experiment's backers, an ultra-secret and under-funded intelligence agency subsidized by the Department of Fish and Game, to stop the terrorists, avenge his brother's death, and get a fresh hit of the counter-agent.

Best show on TV?
8 April 2001 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This is a show that so exceeds what I thought it would be that I can't bear to miss a second of it. I make sure to tape every episode I see so that I can watch it again.

This show blends the best elements of any show better than any show I've ever seen before. There has not been an episode that has made me laugh and sit on the edge of my seat at the same time.

The Characters are perfectly modeled, with the exception of the keeper (I'm sorry but she is a little weak) but even she is not terrible.

Vincent Ventresca is the ideal unwilling hero. He's funny, not perfect, and has comedy timing that make him perfect.

Paul Ben Victor's Bobby Hobbes is hilarious as the side kick with a surprising aptitude for martial arts and detective work.

And finally the official is terrific when it comes to being a nightmare for the heroes.

In short watch this show it's impossible to be disappointed with it, for there hasn't been a show of this quality in a while.
