But onto the show itself. Darien Fawkes (the underappreciated Vincent Ventresca) is a thief who is finally caught and put in prison. He's looking at a life sentence, but his brother comes to his "rescue" of sorts when he offers him a deal: Testing an experimental gland implant in the brain that will release a chemical nicknamed "Quicksilver" that coats the skin for a brief period of time that bends light around the subject, allowing them to become invisible to the naked eye. Darien accepts the deal, but we know what road good intentions lead to. Fawkes' brother is double-crossed and killed by his assistant Arnaud DeFehrn (the wonderfully sleazy Joel Bissonette), and Fawkes is stuck with the experimental gland before it's perfected. The gland has a potentially fatal flaw which is that if used for too long of a period of time, the user (in this case, Fawkes) will experience what is called "Quicksilver Madness" which he experiences psychotic and sociopathic tendencies.Read more ›
Oh, you haven't been introduced? Well, let me take you into a world where nothing is as it seems, and you'll meet a man so transparent, you can see right through him.
Darien Fawkes, a two-bit hood who tries to do good on his latest job, gets thrown into jail for the longest stretch possible: life imprisonment.
Darien's brother Kevin decides to help out, and gets Darien paroled into his own little science project. It's quite simple, really...Kevin operates on Darien and implants a gland into his brain that delivers a substance called Quicksilver. This substance has a unique benefit - it turns its host completely invisible.
But this kind of power can't come without a catch, right?
Well, it turns out that Kevin's little gift has an unforeseen side effect on Darien. After prolonged use of the gland, it causes him to become a murderous psychopath, a condition called 'Quicksilver Madness', which can only be suppressed with a counteragent injection.
Over the course of this first season boxed set, we get to watch the adventures of an unlikely cop-buddy comedy/sci-fi team up between Darien Fawkes, the man with the Gland, and his partner Bobby Hobbes, who can't even get a prepaid calling card from their boss, a man only known as "The Official". You'll watch their adventures of taking out spy networks, disabling assassins, uncovering Agency experiments that went horribly awry, and much more.Read more ›

I like this series. The Department of fish and game is underrated and I find it amusing that the secret agency is under their department. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Jamie Vann
