> Description 
The series is a superhero drama-comedy. In it, Hinkley is a schoolteacher who encounters aliens who give him a special bright red suit which endows him with superhuman abilities. The novelty of the show was based on Hinkley's inability to properly learn to use the suit other than by trial and error, due to his having clumsily lost the instructions. However, the underlining drama is the struggle of a trio of ordinary people struggling to cope in superhero adventures in the real world. The show is typical of producer Stephen J. Cannell's style of character-driven quirky drama where the plot is secondary to the relationships between the characters.
