John Doe is an intelligent adventure series, named after the main character, albeit not by name: 'John Doe' is called thus because nobody knows the name of the man who literally fell from the sky, naked, in the sea near an obscure island. When Cambodian fishermen save him, it soon becomes clear his memory is in a paradoxical state: he has total amnesia concerning his own past, even his real name, but has more factual knowledge stored in his brain then even the Google computer banks on every possible other subject, as if he had memorized the Library of Congress, so one rarely needs to read anything when he's around.

This is one of my favorite TV shows ever made. At first, I was skeptic, a guy who knows every thing and doesn't know who he is? Yeah, that is such a big deal. But after watching the premiere of Firefly, I decided too stick around. I was taken aback. The cinematography was wonderful, the constant but subtle transitions from color too black and white, the swirling angles. And yet, the plot was even better. Twists and turns fill the episode, and each one after that, and the series finale will leave you trying too catch up and awed at a finale surprise. but alas, Well never know how it ends, as it was cancelled. But it lives on in my mind, the soundtrack still echoing trough my head, the surprises I'm still thinking about.
