Created by Jon Sherman, and written by Sherman, P.K. Simonds & Manny Coto, MTV's conspiracy thriller-drama Dead at 21 focuses on Ed Bellamy (Jack Noseworthy), who learns on his 20th birthday that he was the subject of a childhood medical experiment that resulted in him having microchips implanted in his brain. The good news? The chips make him a genius. The fine print? Well, if you look at the title then you know what happens when he reaches the legal drinking of most states. With Maria Cavalos (Lisa Dean Ryan) by his side, Ed looks to find a way to stop the seemingly inevitable- all while staying one step ahead of the research center's Agent Winston (Whip Hubley), who's been charged with bringing Ed "home." For 1994 and thread-thin budget, the 13-episode series was better than it had any right to be and is definitely worth checking out:
