Episode Summary

EDIT
The Spider Webb
AIRED:
While hiding out in a cheesy motel, Veil happens upon The Lenny Little Show, a public access television series in which the main character is un cannily depecting Veil's own frightening life. Struggling to understand, Veil watches as unknown forces pursue Lenny and attempt to erase his every trace. He sees the actors perform the exact same dialogue and reenact experiences he endured as recently as the previous day. Trying to grasp what's happening, Veil angrily pursues an explanation, which leads him to the strange offices of Max Webb Productions—and his tormentors.moreless

    The Spider Webb is the episode that, aside from the pilot, did the most to get me hooked on Nowhere Man during the show's original run. Like the best episodes in the series, the premise is simple and intriguing. The acting from the supporting cast is great (Richard Kind is especially good and perfectly devious as Max Webb) except when it's intended to be otherwise (the show within the show is hilariously cheesy). The episode has a fantastic look, a solid plot, a great script and the action flows well.



    But perhaps the best part of The Spider Webb is how it explores one of Tom's greatest flaws, which is also one of his greatest assets: his superhuman, blind determination to find out what happened to his life and why.moreless
