Steven Matrix is one of the underworld's foremost hitmen until his luck runs out, and someone puts a contract out on him. Shot in the forehead by a .22 pistol, Matrix "dies" and finds himself in "The City In Between", where he is shown the faces of all the men and women he's murdered and a sea of fire. He's informed that he will being given a second chance. He must earn a reprieve from Hell by helping others. He then wakes up in the hospital, after an apparent "near death" experience. In each episode, Matrix meets a new "guide" from the world beyond, and is given a new assignment, much in the manner of an unwilling guardian angel. Usually his guides give him little or no useful information about the job to come, and his methods of handling the cases are sometimes as brutal as the rules of his old profession, but he gets the job done.

Carrie-Anne Moss = Matrix(TVSeries + Film)
4 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

A short lived series comprising of only 13 episodes no longer shown anywhere! Some solid performances by veteran Canadian actor Nick Mancuso right from the start as lead actor playing a hit-man who's blown away by a.22 calibre but given a second chance to live. The former hitter is now a saver of lost souls on earth and in each episode he's given an assignment from a messenger from beyond and is expected to do whatever is necessary to complete the job. He's helped along by his mob partner and friend Billy who has the job of researcher, clean up man, and bodyguard. Series criticized by media based on its kooky premise but some more current programs with similar story lines where the main character has a near death experience include Brimstone, and more recently The Dead Zone with Anthony Michael Hall, though Steven Matrix doesn't have any real special power other than he's able to go back and forth between two worlds, usually not by choice. Small supporting cast that includes popular Matrix film star Carrie Anne Moss as Matrix's business partner in a fitness club. And now that both Matrix film sequels are coming out later this year, it'd be nice to see this TV series reair.
