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

Originally cancelled by UPN after the third season finale "Sentinel too". Fan response after the airing of the finale prompted UPN to give the series half a season to end the series properly. See more »
Incacha, help me!
Why do you call me?
Am I losing my mind?
Do not be afraid to walk through your dreams. You must allow your spirit to speak.
But all I see is death in my dreams.
If there is darkness, then you must face it. Darkness will flee from the light but the light must shine from within. I can not bring it to you. What do you see? What do you fear?
This is not me!

The Sentinel is a great sci-fi/buddy-buddy/action show about Detective Jim Ellison, a cop with heightened senses, and Blair Sandburg, the anthropology grad-student who helps him control them. It's a wonderful action-packed series, but it has been cancelled. Reruns are still running weekly on UPN, but this may only last until next season of new shows begins this fall (1999). However, reruns will show daily on the Sci-Fi Channel beginning in fall. Check it out!
