Lawyer Eli Stone begins to see visions, including George Michael singing in his living room, and street cars in the lobby of his office building. Turns out he has a medical condition that affects his brain and might be the cause of the visions (as well as his late father, whom he considered a deadbeat until finding out his dad may have been similarly afflicted.) Eli takes on a case that pits him against his own firm, on the side of a mother and son fighting a drug company. Written by

The show's pilot came under fire for depicting mercury additives in childhood vaccines as a credible cause for autism, an idea which had gained a great deal of media attention in the late 1990s but which was thoroughly disproved by the time the episode was produced. The American Academy of Pediatrics asked that a disclaimer to be placed in front of the show, reminding viewers that no mercury is present in routine vaccinations and that the mercury-autism link has been rejected by the medical community. The producers opted to show a disclaimer after the end credits stating that the "persons, companies, products or events" were fictional, referring viewers to the CDC's web site on autism for more information.
