Storyline

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.

Trivia

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 »

The best show.....*ever*
26 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the most enjoyable shows I've seen. It's real family entertainment, something that Mom and Dad can safely watch with the kids and grandparents and all the family will find something to entertain them.

The only crime is that U.P.N had ditched probably their best show ever.

Thank God for the Sci Fi channel in the U.S, may the marriage between them and The Sentinel be a long and productive one.
