Wishman: The Genetic Wonder
16 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I have vague memories of Wishman. I believe the project may have been billed as "Wishman: The Genetic Wonder." The plot involves the creation of a small, quasi-human, genetically engineered being. This being is rescued or liberated from a lab by two scientists who then go on the run, trying to establish civil rights and freedom for Wishman.

This may have been a pilot for a proposed series. If so, I suspect that Wishman may have been somewhat disconcerting. The producers were trying to go for "E.T." cuteness, I think, but Wishman is too close to human for comfort. In any event, I have never seen or heard of "Wishman" since it first appeared.
