I saw a show once where this man steps into a cabinet and snow starts swirling around him. Later in the show someone wipes circles on the glass and finds him. The only other thing I remember is that a woman was upset by all this. Sorry, I don't remember anymore.
Perhaps you are thinking of an episode of Castle (ABC)? In season 4, there's an episode called Head Case (episode 4) where the main characters find a room with bodies preserved by cryogenics, and Castle wipes circles on the glass window on one of the containers and finds a frozen guy. Several women are upset by this.
