Louis Ciccone is a reporter for the Toronto Gazette, but life's given him a forced side activity. This is due to his inconvenient power as a postcognitive, a person who is able to see visions of past events. These visions are always related to a murder of a person he encounters by happenstance. While he cannot control these visions or trigger them voluntarily, they do provide vital leads and clues that allow him to investigate the crime. This leads him into the strangest situations as he investigates them Written by Kenneth Chisholm <>

Crazy Credits

When this series was rerun on the Canadian cable network Showcase in the mid-1990s, the network chose to precede each episode with a disclaimer advising viewers that the series - produced only a few years earlier - "does not necessarily depict" the way relationships between men and women were treated in the 1990s. This politically correct disclaimer was roundly criticized by viewers and the media, and was eventually dropped by the network. See more »

Needs to be released on DVD
22 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It was funny, mysterious and had great T.O. In jokes. It provided some story lines which challenged the status quo.

The main characters were not the "pretty people", they were the talented and flawed people.

It was refreshing, and a topic of conversation at dinner tables which bridged the rigid space between young values and old values.

When will it be available on DVD?

But also when will "Seeing Things 2000+" make it's way onto the world stage, or at least the CBC?

We're waiting;-)
