Throughout the series the producers used stylized visual sequences to illustrate Sam's intuitive leaps. Because the show debuted at the same time as the similarly themed Millennium (1996), which stared a profiler with actual psychic abilities illustrated with similar stylized segments, many assumed that Sam was supposed to be psychic. In reality the flashes were never supposed to be psychic. Instead they were supposed to illustrate Sam's thought process as she made intuitive leaps. See more »
The actor Dennis Christopher, who plays "Jack", is never credited as Dennis Christopher, the credits just say "and jack". This is because the identity of Jack is a secret (for the characters in the series, they don't know who he is), his identity is unmasked in the first two episodes of the 4th season, from this moment he is credited as "dennis christopher as jack" in the credits. (There are two episodes, where he is credited in his role as "Albert Newquay", in fact, "Albert Newquay" is "Jack", also revealed in the meantioned episodes). See more »
This is the best TV series I have seen. It's got good acting, GREAT plot (the whole Jack-of-All-Trades plot in the background was brilliant), and even after Sam Waters retired the idea is still very, very captivating.
The part I like best (and which I also find most scary), is all the different motives/backgrounds the perpetrators have. I also appreciate that the main characters have a life besides the VCTF, and that they develop throughout the series.
All in all, I can't point to anything about the series I don't like. It's a must-see.
