    Hey guys

    I need to pick your brains

    I watched a movie (possibly a TV show pilot) about 20 years ago, I remember the plot but have no clue what it was called.

    All I remember is it starts with a space mission, there is an accident on the shuttle and the pilot gets his eyes burned and he is blinded

    Back on Earth he discovers when his eyes are exposed to sunlight he gets smarter/stronger etc but can't stay in the sun for long.

    I remember he had bandages over his eyes and pulled them off and did long equations on a chalkboard

    I also remember the finale was set in an observatory and was a bit fight type thing

    I think also possibly his eyes used to change colour in sunlight, not sure

    Ring any bells? would love to find out what it was!

    Cheers

    NOPE, But how about this one I remember a tv show or pilot, this guy murged with some sort of killer robot, everytime a part of his body got hurt, that part would turn into the robot. at the end he goes all the way and start blowing things up. At the end though he turns back to normal.

    I've probably never even heard of it. For a second I thought you were talking about Deep Impact, before reading the rest of the description.

    Hey, I've got two movies too that I can't remember.

    One was this girl who was in a car accident and had a brain transplant, but she kept getting memories from this other girl and there were all kinds of terrible images and stuff.

    The other was this girl who had this picture of a house and there was a person in the window. Then she went to the house and saw the person, but they didn't have any legs because in the picture, they were only drawn as the top part of their body.

    There's a chance that these might be the same movie, but I don't think so. They were pretty twisted.

    How many of you remember this series "The Immortal" back in 1970? It
    is about a guy who is the only human that has a blood type where he is
    immune to diseases and never ages and can live forever. He is on the run
    from a secret government organization that wants his blood and study
    him.

    From the OP I thought it was Heat Vision and Jack. Which is awesome and everyone should watch.

    It would have made a great show. Which means Fox would have cancelled it after 3 episodes.
