Storyline

A man awakens on an island only to discover that he has no memory of who he is. Without knowing his identity, he travels to Seattle and finds out that not only is he an amnesiac but that he is a savant, that he knows literally everything. The colorblind genius soon becomes a police consultant, aiding in the most inexplicable of crimes, while, at the same time, beginning a journey to find out who he is. Written by Dan

cheesy with mistakes
17 October 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

The show is semi interesting. I caught every single episode from the very beginning for quite some time. However, it's filled with cheesy cliches and they make the mistake of having people frequently telling him things he should know (being he's knows all facts). (examples, digger tells him about hacking computers etc).
