Synopsis by Hal Erickson
"I," in this instance, stands for "Indestructible." Thus, star Scott Bakula is actually the Indestructible Man. Formerly a cab driver, Bakula becomes invulnerable when when exposed to a mysterious gas, then decides to utilize his "gift" for the Good of Mankind. At the urging of his hero-worshipping son (Joey Cramer), Bakula becomes a secret agent, working as a team with beautiful spy Ellen Bry. This TV pilot, which aired on The Disney Sunday Movie on April 6, 1986, finds I-Man and lovely his aide trying to wrest a stolen laser gun away from an addled villain (John Anderson). I-Man was directed by TV-movie stalwart Corey Allen, who thirty years earlier had played the unfortunate teenager who lost the "chicken run" to James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause (1955).
