Storyline

"The X-Files" writer/executive producer Howard Gordon presents an exploration of a nefarious world where "big business" funds "big science," and the answers Paul Turner finds lead to more questions than have ever been imagined. After exposure to chemical weapons during the Gulf War, ex-Government scientist Turner spent six isolated years fighting for his life until an enigmatic Asian woman saved him with a miraculous cure...that lasted only temporarily. Ever since, the illness has regularly returned to ravage Turner's body until the woman mysteriously reappears to provide another dose. After a six year absence, Turner returns to the Army as a Special Investigator in charge of tracking down the Frankensteins of the world. Turner's belief that the government is too slow and inefficient to protect us from the unchecked advances of science proves to be all too true in this show that features such ripped- from-the-headlines fare as cloning and genetic engineering. His only allies are his ... Written by Anonymous

Looks promising...
16 February 2002 | by jellyfish_chowSee all my reviews

My parents and I saw an advertisement for this t.v. show on SciFi. I vaguely remembered it airing a few years ago on broadcast. They showed about two or three episodes, then shelved it. Apparently, SciFi is picking it up and making new episodes, or just airing the previously filmed ones. Either way, it is a very interesting show. I am also an avid fan of the X-Files, so I am very familiar with the content and the premise. If you like action, drama, and a little bit of the paranormal, tune in to SciFi on Friday nights at eight!
