Now and Again

CBS
Friday 9:00–10:00 p.m.
Cast:Eric Close, Margaret Colin, Heather Matarazzo, and Roger Singer

Not to be confused with ABC's Once and Again, Now and Again is billed as an action-comedy-drama-romance. Think that's ambitious? Check out the premise: insurance salesman Michael Wiseman (John Goodman, in a pilot-only appearance) is mutilated in a subway accident. The government secretly saves his life, but there's a catch: Doctors transfer his brain into the body of a young, genetically perfect “superhero” (Close), who's enlisted to fight the forces of evil that are beyond the government's reach. The mutation cannot make any contact with Wiseman's wife (Colin) or daughter (Matarazzo).
