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 »

Currently showing in Canada on digital cable channels
2 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show sporadically in the early 80's on the CBC. Now it is currently run on digital channels Mystery and Deja View here in Canada. I gotta say I love the show. Seeing Things is an interesting snapshot of Canada in the early 80's.

All in all most of the eps seem well written and acted, although not nearly as slick as current programs on network TV...but that could be the charm of this show.

Del Grande was pretty funny in this show. Just a normal guy type character.

I have to nominate the theme song for Seeing Things as the most bizarre and odd theme song for any television show.

Thanks to Mystery and Deja View for running this classic.
