1996-03-04 00:00:00 - Total Recall and Nowhere-Man - (email@example.com)
The more I watch this show, the more I see and suspect the parallel's with "Total Recall". My own theory is that Veil was NEVER a photographer with a "wife" and family. He always WAS working for the organization...it's THOSE memories that have been erased and the Veil photo-journalist identity is the false one. They are using him as the test...to see if the real memories will come back under the stress of what they are putting him through...plus they get to test all these new techniques and toys on the guy. Veil is pretty damn arrogant....what a come-uppance to find out he's part of what he's fighting!

Yet another idea: The memories are implanted from the moment of the Photography gala: example: TV: in response to the woman (with the hat's inquiry): ...records of the facts, what is, what was...(broken glass with dropped tray) Anyway, I think TV was a Vietnam Vet: the French music from the restaurant, to his mother's house, to the carradio. To Tom's mother insisting he was dead. TV: You know my name? Bellamy: You told the Police it was Thomas Veil. ^^^ later, Powers: You were the special guy who saw thru it. Finally got to you, eh? TV:What *type* am I? Powers: The type that don't buy into the program. More--seem different to me after _Hidden Agenda_ TV: Why are we here? [with Bellamy the first time at the studio] Bellamy: To Test your version against reality. Bellamy: What are you feeling now? TV: Confused. Bellamy: Being a little less sure of things may just be the road to recovery. Much later: Powers: You still haven't put it together. [when he takes TV's medicine] Here's to 'Nam. Nowhere Maniacs, what do you think? Rose Swicegood

Hmmm, I'd like to take that one step further...just when Tom decides that everything he saw in his coma the last few years is fake, he finds it's another plot by "Them" to beat him. Maybe as a last ep, they could have Tom finally come face to face with the Director. But then, I wouldn't want to ruin any great stories as NwM unfolds. Larry, if you're reading this, you have my full permission to use this story. Consider this a waver of my rights to it. ;) 'Course, I seriously doubt whatever anyone's posted on the board so far is anywhere near what Larry's got in mind for TV... -Stephan Pfuetze

Actually, "An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge" was originally a story by Ambrose Bierce. Bierce, if you will remember, supposedly vanished in 1913 in Mexico, during the revolution. Was the Mexican Revolution one of THEIR early efforts at social engineering? Did Bierce see something he shouldn't have? (After all, he WAS a journalist, and would presumably have wanted to publish any such information) Was Bierce one of THEIR first, incomplete, attempts at erasure? Just how long have THEY been at this?? Stan Walker firstname.lastname@example.org (preferred) email@example.com (if you must)
