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.

This series reminds me of the series "Brimstone". Maybe the Wachowski Brothers got the idea from this Matrix series but instead of a supernatural world, they went the "cyber-universe" way with the story? I do think its weird that Carrie-Anne Moss is in a "same title" piece of cinema. Lots of actors have that in common. George Clooney started in a program called "E/R" in 1984, with Elliott Gould in a hospital. Like the drama "ER", it too was in Chicago! It seems as if new stuff is really just old stuff redone differently. Kinda like history. Brimstone seemed a little too familiar when I first saw it and now I think I know why. I don't remember Matrix too much though. Just the "mafioso" feeling of you can't go back now cause you're in too deep. Redemption is a recurring theme and coupled with resurrection seems to work even in Purgatory. Just look at Tek War. One day someone will redo that story!!!
