Hmmm.... I don't know if anyone else remembers a little show in the seventies about this sucessful guy, Dr. Banner, who's life is suddenly shattered, he loses his wife and has to take to life on the road because he's being followed by some military organization. He wanders into towns, gets little jobs, discovers some terrible danger or conspiracy and helps the townspeople regain their lives. But for him, it's always back down the road. oh yeah, when he gets angry he turns green and smashes things. I have half expected TV to turn into the Hulk in a few episodes... it just brings me back to when I was a kid. -- -Ken Larson Bodhran, it rhymes with Moron bodhran@teleport.com bodhran@eworld.com Bodhran Tippers, Gallowglass Irish Trio, DADGAD Chords http://www.teleport.com/~bodhran

Especially the odd jobs and going from town to town. This really hit home at the end of this weeks episode when he's on the side of the road and looking like he's hitching. The old Incredible Hulk show always ends with David Banner on the road and hitching. I still remember the music theme and almost expect that music to come on with Tom Veil on the road. Will

Re Veil = Banner. One important difference I think. Tom appears to be able to keep his shirt on and does not have to buy a new shirt or two every episode though I must say for a man hitching from town to town and doing odd jobs, his laundry is certainly well done!! @rchie A.D.(Archie) Campbell, LLB(Hons) CA (UK) CA(Canada) Vancouver B.C.

Tom's laundry may be well done but I for one am getting a little sick of that brown corderoy jacket.....

Apropos of nothing in this thread - but does anybody else remember a short-lived series in late 60's called Man in a Suitcase about an ex-spy w/ severe case of amnesia? You can email me privately if you do. Laurie Dean Manning

I guess we can only pray that "Nowhere Man" can end on an exciting, original note like "The Fugitive". Something like: "Aha! The Director! It's ... Dr. Bellamy! I knew you weren't dead!" "Curses! Now we'll never get those negatives to the photo that could expose everything! I guess our group is finished!" "Oh Tom, I'm the real Allison, they really must've fooled you with that double!" "Wow. Glad that's over with. Back to my normal life." I think I can safely predict that Mr. Hertzog won't go down that road... -- --reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away----- --withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy--------------------------- --truth is as terrible as death but harder to find-------------------------- ----------vote cthulhu in '96------------------------------black myron------
