After spending years in the Peruvian jungle during his tour in Army Special Forces, Cascade PD Detective James Ellison developed hyperactive senses, which came back to him five years after his return to the US. He can see people in darkened windows at night from two hundred yards, hear the music playing on the radio of the car he's chasing after he's lost sight of it, and can distinguish between wood and plastic after both have been in a three thousand degree fire. Blair Sandburg, a local anthropology student, tells Ellison that he is a "Sentinel," who in ancient tribes would protect the village and seek out game using such hyperactive senses. Sandburg becomes Ellison's back-watcher and teacher of how to use his new powers as Ellison brings a whole new edge to the war on crime in Cascade, Washington. Written by

Garett Maggart was cast as Blair before Jim's role was assigned. He screen tested with a few of the Jims in the running but once Richard Burgi came on the scene it was pretty much decided. They had instant chemistry. See more »
I caught this show by accident when it came out,and was hooked. There was just enough Sci-Fi to keep your imagination active and not too outrageous. Ellison was portrayed as a total Superman like some action stars of the era.
Has anyone heard anything about their release dates? Or has anything been mentioned?
This series was one of the better ones on UPN - shame they didn't keep it going. Does anyone know why they didn't keep it going? Did one of the actors get greedy?
Should anyone hear about future releases please let me know. I will be eagerly awaiting seasons 2 & 3.
