Missing actors names
21 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why don't you list the two major actors who play Sally & John Burton on this page? I did a search and their names only appear in the synopsis of the plot. Sally Field played the wife with ESP, but who was the husband?

I really enjoyed this show in my middle childhood and was sad when it didn't return for a second season. I found the ESP facility, used in a comedic manner to be very entertaining. The energy/chemistry between the actors who played husband and wife was wonderful. It reminds me of the energy between such television couples and Samantha and Darren on Bewitched, Dharma and Greg and Jeannie and the Major. My memories of this TV series are a bit fuzzy as it was so long ago, but I would love to see it on DVD.
