Picks and Pans Review: Nowhere Man

UPN (Mondays, 9 p.m. ET)


In a new suspense series, Bruce Greenwood (St. Elsewhere) plays a photographer who steps into the bathroom to have a smoke one evening while dining out. When he emerges, all traces of his existence have vanished. Another man has taken his place and is living with his wife. Greenwood's keys don't fit the locks, and his ATM machine rejects his PIN.

He gradually comes to realize he is the victim of a massive, ever-widening conspiracy, and he begins a cross-country quest to find out what forces are behind his erasure.

This type of paranoid scenario (predecessors include The Prisoner and last season's VR-5) is hard to sustain as a series without either a sharp focus or boundless imagination. And Nowhere Man, an intriguing if thin show, isn't sufficiently flush in either category.
