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

What an excellent concept and superb cast
9 March 2004 | by (Woy Woy, NSW Australia) – See all my reviews

This series centres around John Doe, a mystery man who has no recollection of his past. Found in the ocean, naked, and endowed with a bizarre brand, he appears to have an encyclopaedic knowledge of facts, none of which throw any light on his identity. The series develops as he gradually discovers things about himself, meeting new and interesting people along the way (excellent character development) and learning the rudiments of social behaviours. This is an excellent show, so compelling that it is impossible to miss each new episode. The viewer is intrigued and is forced to speculate on the implications of each new discovery as it occurs - this is reminiscent of the developing background and discoveries in the X Files regarding Mulder's sister and father. A must see - highly recommended.
