Trying to find/remember a TV show from the 90s about corporate evil
Ok, I am trying to find traces of a TV show that was on somewhere roughly between 1993 and 1997. The premise was that the main character was a corporate executive who was deliberately raised by his father to be a sociopath, i.e. the perfect executive. Kind of a predecessor to the more recent "Corporation" documentary, and fictional.
- It was only on for one, maybe two seasons. Pretty sure it was on FOX and may have been right before or after X-Files.
- As a child, the main character was raised in a cardboard box so he wouldn't have human contact/socialization; flashbacks reference this.
- In one episode he beats a polygraph test by putting a tack in his shoe and pressing on it when answering questions so that his various vital signs fluctuate.
Anyone else remember this or know what it was called?
Spin isn't in academia? You're in for a real disappointment when you go to your first conference and see two old men with mighty beards politely implying that the other person is more capable of fucking a dog then writing a scientific paper.
