Show Summary

Darien Fawkes is a thief and conman with a scientist brother, Kevin. Kevin develops a gland that allows the implantee to excrete "Quicksilver" and turn invisible. Unfortunately, the gland has the side effect of rendering the implantee berserk if a counteragent isn't occasionally injected. Darien agrees to the operation to avoid a jail sentence. Terrorists kill Kevin, leaving Darien with the gland stuck in his head. A mysterious "Agency" was behind Kevin's research, and offer Darien a deal: work for them in return for injections of the Counteragent. Using his powers of invisibility, Darien takes on spies and other criminals for the government.

    New show on sci-fi, I hadn't laugh in a long time,..this was and is an amazing show. I watched it and started cracking up, the pilot was so well done and the actors/actresses did such a wonderfull job that i couldn't help but get stuck on it. The more I watched the more I was intrigued with Darien Fawkes & Freinds and the twists and turns, and laughed and grew on the show. Kinda like a puppy you find but not, it's the best show! If you haven't seen it yet, check it out!moreless

    I find that this show deserves so many awards. And I am very sad that it was cancelled. This show was like no other it had seen. It had drama, action, humor, but most of all it had class. This show it had many wonderful twists to always keep the viewer on the edge of their seat. It also was like no other because even thought there was a main character (Vincent ventresca) it also focused on the other character’s (Paul Ben-victor, Shannon Kenny, Eddie Jones, Michael mcCafertty, Joel bissonnette) as well. Every Friday night, I looked forward to the one show that would help me forget about my worries and cares from the week leading to the Friday. The humor would make me smile. The action always mad me wish I could do that. And the drama, always kept me coming back for more. Over all this show is a absolute must see. You cant find many good shows like this one was.moreless
  • A new spin on the venerable story of the Invisible Man; a funny and great version.

    Oh, man. I really dug this show. Vince Ventresca (Darien Fawkes) as a flippant con-man / cat burglar with an implanted invisibility gland – turned reluctant and very cynical government agent teamed with Paul Ben-Victor (Bobby Hobbes) as the 3rd rate real deal G-man provided lots of laughs, excitement, and tension as they tried to thwart crime. The show's pilot showed us that the gland (called Quicksilver) was implanted by Darien's government funded scientist/doctor brother, Kevin, with whom he shares not a little bit of sibling rivalry, as a last ditch effort to keep Darien from serving a life-term prison sentence. Downside: the gland is highly experimental, and the *known* side-effect is slipping into a violence driven madness. Yeah, 'cause no good deed goes unpunished. Dr. Fawkes is partnered with Dr. Arnaud another scientist who turns out to be quite mad himself, and is also a terrorist with a hidden agenda. Arnaud shoots Kevin, intends to kidnap Darien and steal the Quicksilver in order to use it for his own ends, but Darien is kidnapped by someone else! But Arnaud goes on to become the great nemesis/villain of the series. One more essential character: The Keeper. The Keeper (Shannon Kenney) works for the Agency, the group who actually kidnaps Darien and force him to work for them after his brother is killed; her function is to monitor the level of Quicksilver in Darien's system and inject a counteragent to keep him from going Quicksilver mad, and help develop the means of extracting the gland. All in all, this was a great show with one of my all-time favorite Frick & Frack teams. Get it on DVD and watch, and laugh.moreless

  • This was a GREAT SHOW, and needs to be back.

    I-Man was a great show. I think it was the best version of The Invisible Man.

    Each week the characters did some of the strangest cases, but it always seemed right. As there was a guy, Darien Faux, who could turn invisible due to a gland his brother put in his head. Bobby Hobbs, his agency partner, was such a one of a kind character, he always left you shaking your head. Not because he was stupid but because he was just such a funny guy, with some strange ideas. Clair "The Keeper", was such a good character. She always left you tring to firgure out who's side was she on; Darien's or The Official's. Eberts, what is there to say about Eberts except "Shut up, Eberts", was said to him more than once per each ep.

    I don't think there was ever an episode that let me down by way of the plot; from Darien's constant need for revenge of his brother's murder, Crysolis' plans to take over the world, stolen babies, and many one episode plots. Just when the show really hit their stride, Darien was given the cure for Quick Silver Madness, they were cancled, a big mistake.

    It really, really, really needs to be back on the air; the sooner the better.moreless
