comment
The noirish action of Nowhere Man may or may not be taking place entirely in the mind of its hero, Thomas Veil (Bruce Greenwood), a photojournalist specializing in stark, brutal war shots. In the first episode, Veil attends a showing of his work, which includes "Hidden Agenda," a disturbing photo of American military personnel apparently presiding over an execution in an unnamed Third World country. Almost immediately upon its display, Veil's life is ... destroyed. Erased. Zeroed. Un Personed. He becomes a fugitive non-person, on the run from the mysterious forces that want the "Hidden Agenda" photo destroyed and forgotten.The series had Veil walking the earth, dealing with often disturbing happenings throughout middle America which were probably caused by the same organization that was targeting him, although hard truths were difficult to come by on this show, and the viewer was often left with a sense of uncertainty which mirrored Veil's own.A classic example of a show that was too good to last, the series may have aired too near in time to The X-Files, which had absorbed a great deal of the audience's thirst for this kind of story.Not to be confused with the song by The Beatles.Note: in some cases below even the trope names can be spoilers.

Christmas Episode: It's nearly Christmas when Tom sees a newspaper reporting that the FBI are looking for him to testify. His family welcomes him back for the holiday and everything seems to have been a mistake. Then he finds the house has been turned over by his wife, looking for the negatives. He takes them from the hiding place and goes back on the run.
