John Doe

(0 votes)

John Doe tv seriesJohn Doe, a mysterious man rises from the primordial waters of an isolated island, possessing knowledge of literally everything in the world, yet having no memory of who - or even what - he is. Doe quickly finds his way to Seattle, where he befriends the police and uses his special gift to help them solve "impossible" crimes each week, while continuing his unending quest to uncover who he is and where he came from.

Despite his considerable charm, Doe is an emotional island unto himself. Want to know the population of Peru in 1853? How many blue cars there are in the state of Washington? Or better yet, predict which horse will win every race at the track based on knowing all the variables? Doe has all the answers. But what is he like? Family man or loner? Hero or villain? What is truly in his soul? Doe doesn't have a clue. In his search to unlock the key to his past, He may be a government agent, an extra-terrestrial or perhaps just a regular John Doe with a bout of amnesia. Whatever secrets his past holds, Doe is now the man who knows everything - a gift that will forever change his destiny.

Trivia

The original (unaired) pilot episode was shot with a different cast. Elizabeth Lackey was the first to assume the role of Lt. Jamie Avery, Azura Skye played Karen Kawalksi and rock musician Meat Loaf, was barman Digger. The only "survivors" from that shoot were Dominic Purcell, and, John Marshall Jones.

At the start you can see that the island John is on is alone with no others around it, but when he falls off you can clearly see an island directly opposite. Does this just appear magically?

So...where did Nichols get the body from that he used to make it look like he died in the car crash? At the very least this makes him a bodysnatcher, and at worse it means that he killed someone else so he could fake his death, evade the charges filed against him, and leave his wife and daughter to face the music and pay his bills. And yet he's presented as a sympathetic character here.

John describes the laundry token on the phone as "green", but when we saw him look at it from his black-and-white point of view it was not in color, unlike other stuff relating to the girl's kidnapping.

Doe not only couldn't see that she was banging on the window (maybe we're to assume he "investigated" around and found her fingerprints?), but how come the fingerprint is only of the thumb, perfectly? Why aren't there marks of the rest of her finger and if there are, why didn't Doe get them? Theresa was clearly banging on the glass with her entire hand, not just her thumb.

The last scene as the mysterious woman holds the printout and looks over a bunch of old buildings with a shining castle in the background, was filmed in the Cairo City of the Dead, a four-mile-long walled necropolis in Egypt and the castle is actually the Citadel.

New Amsterdam
John Amsterdam, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective is immortal. He is 400 years old, but his body structure is that of a 35-year-old. Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
