Storyline

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 <kchishol@execulink.com>

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 »

Murder mystery/comedy with a Toronto newspaper reporter who has visions.
19 July 1999 | by (Madison Heights, MI, USA) – See all my reviews

This series ran for about six years. Excellent off-beat humor, with witty commentary on Canada, the U.S., family relations, media industries (film, TV, newspapers, music, etc) and life and society in general. The unlikely hero is Louis (as in Looie), who starts having visions after separating from his wife. When he touches a corpse or an item that was on the corpse or was used in the murder, that triggers an increasingly explicit series of visions. Of course, getting the crown attorney to believe him is the first major hurdle. If you like Due South, you will like this one. In fact, Louis did a guest spot on Due South. Perhaps Turner will pick this one up as well. I sure would enjoy Seeing Things again.
