Editorial Reviews

Unknown forces conspire to erase the identity of photographer Thomas Veil (Bruce Greenwood, I, Robot), and without warning, every aspect of his life is erased during the course of one evening. His wife acts as if he's a stranger, his credit cards are suddenly invalid, his keys no longer fit the door to his home and in one way or another, his family and friends are silenced. Completely alone, Veil sets out on a desperate cross-country quest for an answer while eluding his powerful and unknown enemy. His only clue to the possible motivation behind the harrowing ordeal is the disappearance of one of his photographs, "Hidden Agenda," which depicts the execution of natives in a war-torn Third World country. SPECIAL FEATURES: - Audio and video commentaries (Larry Hertzog, Bruce Greenwood, Peter Dunne, Steve Rodman, Art Monterastelli and Ian Toynton) - Interviews (Larry Hertzog, Art Monterastelli, Guy Magar, Steve Rodman, Bruce Greenwood, Michael Levine, Megan Gallagher) - Deleted and extended scenes - Promotional spots - Outtakes - Featurette -- "Networking" (UPN executive Mike Sullivan and series creator Larry Hertzog reminisce) - Featurette -- "Fact or Fiction?" (an anonymous ex-CIA operative reveals real world government conspiracies, mind control techniques and how fragile our identity really is)

5.0 out of 5 stars We Want The Negative's Tom! October 14, 2005
Verified Purchase
In the fall of 1995 one of the most original progams of that season made it's debut: Nowhere Man. Played by the under-rated Bruce Greenwood who brought just the right amount of suspicion and paranoia to the table, the show quite effectively, and chillingly, shows what could happen if someone had their identity completely erased, in this case after Greenwood's character (photographer Thomas J. Veil) takes a snapshot of what appears to be a hanging in Central America. His life quite literally unravels like a roll of film when the people who want the negatives erases his identity and forces him to go on the run. Everyone, including his wife, no longer recognizes or will have anything to do with him. He is, quite literally, a man without an identity or a past, who must sort out what has happened while avoid being captured. One of the themes of Nowhere Man was that you never knew who was friend or foe, which gave the show it's paranoid edge.

Unfortunately after only one season, and just when it appeared that we were getting to the bottom of who was behind Thomas Veil's erasure and how it was done, the show was cancelled, leaving many a fan, myself included, hanging in the air. It's great that this show is finally being released on DVD, it would have been greater still if they had done so 10 years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY FAVORITE SHOW OF ALL TIME November 8, 2005
I don't make it a point to watch many TV shows as most shows are terrible. I caught the very beginning of the Nowhere Man pilot completely by accident back in 1995 and before the intro was finished......I WAS HOOKED! I was completely devastated when it didn't return and the fact that the show has NEVER been in reruns in the United States, completely evades all logic as it runs in other countries.

I've read rumors about the show possibly being available on DVD for some time, but it seemed to only be a CONSPIRACY to get people like me excited. Now it appears to really be the TRUTH. This is the best news I've heard all year! I'M THRILLED! I'm looking forward to having Nowhere Man on DVD and I'm also hoping that a release of this fine show will cause many people to get as hooked on it as I have been since that fateful Monday night back in 1995. (The above was written before news of a definite release.)

***************** NOWHERE MAN UPDATE

FINALLY!!!! MY FAVORITE TV SHOW OF ALL TIME! "Nowhere Man" is slated to be released on December 27, 2005 on DVD. This will be a first time release for this program in ANY format.

It ran the 25 episodes in 1995/1996 ONE (1) time and has NEVER been seen again (in the USA that is, it ran in reruns overseas). There is a cult following of this show and we've followed news (very scant news since most people haven't heard of this show) for years since it went off the air. We just knew it was a real conspiracy trying to keep our beloved "Nowhere Man" from us.

This show will knock the wind out of you! The absolute best I've ever seen! This is a very CEREBRAL and smart show......we think that's why UPN pulled the plug after only 25 episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars More proof that TV is not a lost cause - 5 stars squared December 13, 2005
Verified Purchase
More proof that TV is not a lost cause - Firefly is supporting evidence.

Nowhere man was a milestone in American TV. It is the US version of the UK series The Prisoner.

I am not so surprised that it was cancelled after a season, I am more shocked that it made on the air to begin with and lasted the season. This is a very thought provoking and cerebral story. This is not for the average "Entertainment Tonight/Desperate Housewives" TV viewer.

This show truly meant something and communicated it's message on a variety of levels. Elements of this show were exciting and in-your-face while other plot elements went deeper and were revealed often hours after you have seen an episode only after it sunk inand your brain absorbed the sublties.

There was not a single bad, dry or slow episode in the whole series. Every one was important and added another piece to the puzzle.

Plus there was absolutely no clue as to where the thing was headed until very close to the end. This was spectacularly well done and Bruce Greenwood was magnificent in his role.

This show so intrigued me I wrote a script for it. The show was cancelled before I presented it to the producer.

I was sad when it was cancelled but pleased that they were able to hastily put together a wrap for the story that while a little cryptic, not as surreal as the ending of The Prisoner.

I think The Prisoner is one of the true masterpieces of artistic TV production, and Nowhere Man is easily it's equal.

I can't wait for the release. I have to have this set. I made room for it right next to my Prisoner Megaset.

I love this show. Love it, love it, absolutely love it. Andthe DVD set absolutely does it justice. Probably UPN's best show, ever. Period. Enough said...

The DVD's are perfect, the casing is beautiful (book-style, if a bit prone to attracting fingerprints ;] ), the audio and video are stellar (though I don't have surround sound or a plasma tv, I was more interested in the storyline than examining with a microscope for dust or other digital artifacts of analog videography: dust, grain, etc.).

The special features are great. I love the commentaries, and the video commentaries, deconstructino of a few scenes and what the cast/crew were going for. Plenty of making-of stuff, even some of the original UPN trailers, even a lame archive clip of Bruce Greenwood recording promotional spots for different affiliate stations (it was kind of funny in a couple places and obvious that he was ad-libbing).

Ahh, the genius oozes from this set. Get it watch it all t eway through from the beginning so as to not taint your understanding of the series if you've never seen it. Once you've watched it all the way through, re-watch it from the beginning and pick up on all the subtle clues and hints and red herrings they dropped throughout the season. The ending is satisfying (they knew they were being dropped, so they tied up the loose ends, mostly; don't worry, I won't spoil the surprise!).

Like I said, don't watch the last episode until you've watched the rest of the series in order. Otherwise it will ruin the tone and character of the other episodes, which should always be watched with a fresh eye first before the big ol' bomb that's dropped at the end.

Highly highly recommended! Excellent suspense/paranoia/conspiracy theory show.

Rubicon
I agree, Rubicon is very thought provoking, but that could be its demise. There are several story lines to follow, which I like but just like Terminator, The Sarah Conner Chronicles, it spelled doom. The Networks have got to give new shows there own time slot and not expect it to blast hot shows... Read More
