This series about a police detective with hypersensitive senses (like Daredevil, only he's not blind, I imagine somebody said in a pitch meeting) ran for four seasons back in the Nineties on one of the smaller networks (UPN?), so it was fairly successful at the time but seems to be mostly forgotten since. As I recall, we watched most, if not all, of the episodes and enjoyed it fairly well. The character had been lost in the Amazon jungle for several years and gained his mysterious abilities there. Except for that gimmick, though, it was a pretty standard cop show. Richard Burgi, who has gone on to have a productive career playing villainous businessmen, sleazy lawyers, etc., is the stalwart hero in this one and does a fine job. The series was created by Danny Bilson and Paul De Meo, who have worked on a lot of genre TV and movies, most of them pretty good. Bilson is also the father of actress Rachel Bilson, currently on HART OF DIXIE and quite possibly the downright cutest woman on television.
