Trivia

The O.S.I.R. (Office of Scientific Investigation and Research) depicted in the series was in-fact an actual organization, incorporated in several countries (including the U.S.) until its acquisition in 2000. Contrary to the dramatized version depicted in "PSI Factor", the organization primarily specialized in environmental and biological assessments and the independent analysis of scientific findings. A small "Anomalistics" division within the organization was the inspiration for the series. See more »

Conner Doyle, Out!
8 August 2004 | by (Arkansas) – See all my reviews

I have never understood why this show never "made it" with the masses as X-Files did. Being a fan of both shows, I always thought Psi-Factor was the better of the two. I even loved the time slot of 11pm CST on Saturday night. My wife and I always looked forward to watching it. It originally started out as one 1-hour episode with two different case files, essentially, a 2-for-1 episode each week. There were a few minor tweaks in storyline and characters throughout its run of four(?) seasons. But overall, a very interesting and rewarding show to say the least. I was disappointed when the show was cancelled, and now I can hardly wait until the DVD Box sets are released.
