Nowhere Man (1995 - 1996)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Genre: Sci-fi and Fantasy; With: Bruce Greenwood; Network: UPN

Star Trek: Voyager is the only semi-hit on UPN, so it's no surprise the anemic new network has gone back to the sci-fi/fantasy well for two new series, Nowhere Man and Deadly Games. The Leonard Nimoy-helmed Games has the Trek connection, yet Nowhere has a more promising premise — and a better ime slot, following Voyager.

A paranoid serial in the Fugitive-Prisoner mold, Nowhere casts Bruce Greenwood (Exotica) as Thomas Veil, a photojournalist whose identity is expunged by a cabal that includes a cigar-chomping shrink (guest star Michael Tucker). With a solid lead in Greenwood and spooky direction from Poltergeist's Tobe Hooper, Nowhere could go somewhere. It starts with a bang and keeps going from there. B
