Gwynne asks about a tv show she remembers from Back In The Day.

It was "The Pretender" & ran from 1996-2000.  The guy wasn't made in a lab; he was kidnapped as a child & raised in the lab.  He was a prodigy & could put himself in place of all kinds of people & solve all sorts of problems.  He escaped & ran around disguising himself & helping people.  The Company kept trying to bring him back in.  Over time the plots got more and more bananapants, as long-lost siblings, etc. showed up.  I really enjoyed the helping people plots of the first couple of seasons, though; it was kind of like a precursor to "Leverage."
