Today Detective Brett Hopper will be accused of shooting state attorney Alberto Garza. He will offer his rock solid alibi. He will realize he's been framed. And he will run. Then he will wake up and start the day over again.
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. He also is intelligent and inquisitive enough to understand and use much of that knowledge, and keeps rolling into all kinds of weird mysteries, teaming up with various characters, each of which must first be convinced he's legit, such as police detectives Frank Hayes and Jamie Avery, but gets frustrated by finding his own story the most elusive, probably linked to some ...

Best show I have seen, just as good as the series 24.
The character John Doe awakens on a deserted island a few miles off the coast of Seattle, he knows everything, however, the crucial things (his name, who he is, family data is unknown). The first episode is terrific as all are. The last episode is a real cliffhanger, unfortunately the series was cancelated after the first season. I believe in the second season we would have found out more information regarding who John Doe really is. Unfortunately, as with any great program, the the executives do not really care about the fans, they only care about the bottom line. With that, we have all seen programs air for several seasons that should have been cancelated after the first few episodes. I have seen every episode. The program has some excellent actors. Domininc Purcell does a stand-up job as John Doe. The remaining cast performs superbly. Every episode is excellent, the show contains a tremendous amount of mystery, and twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Dominic Purcell brings energy and skill every time you see him on the screen. On a different note, I have heard that a feature length movie is in the works, however, the skinny is that Wesley Snipes will be cast as John Doe. Wesley Snipes is a terrific actor, however, I believe he is not the right actor to portray John Doe.
