TV: N is for...

Northstar

FAR-FETCHED, FURTHER-FLUNG one-off snubbed by evil bastard US networks. Jobbing astronaut lands place on unassuming Moon mission, forgets primary school don’t-look-at-sun classroom exercise, loses sight, and returns to Earth brimming with mystical powers. Shoved straight into top-grade US loony institute, but escapes by jumping into nearby helicopter, speed-reading the manual in two seconds and flying off. Trouble was, prolonged exposure to UV rays – of more than, say, three seconds – resulted in spectacular head-throbbing activity pending full cranium explosion.

    Didn’t his eyes change colour depending on how intense his powers were getting? Started yellow, then went red, then for the finale went blue? I might have that the wrong way around. There’s probably a terrible quality copy on YouTube.

    Just checked out the expected YouTube copy and while some of it is what I remember, his eyes don’t change colour, they just go a bit glowing. So what was the US TV movie with the hero whose eyes changed colour depending how intense his powers were, then? Could be my memory that’s defective, of course.
