Storyline

DCI Ross Tanner and his deputy Catherine Tully are investigating the brutal murder of a 19-year-old boy. Among the suspects are a gardener who may have been supplying the boy with drugs, a live-in nanny who may have been having an affair with the boy, an overprotective mother whose new two-year old daughter may have put on strain on the mother-son relationship, a step-father whose work interfered with any intimacy with the boy, and an identical twin of the lastly named 'suspect.' Tanner's skills are tested to the maximum because he is experiencing loss of vision and is hiding the fact until the case is resolved. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Marginal fodder for TV mystery junkies
30 May 2004 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Clive Owen brings his almost complete absence of charisma and scant repertoire of nuances to "Second Sight" as a detective who may or may not be losing his sight depending on who you believe; host Diana Rigg or the doctor characters. A much too pat and uninspired Brit detective series about a workaholic divorced sleuth with personal issues, DCI Tanner (Owen), "Second Sight" is full of nonsequiturs, plot holes, and just plain shoddy work. Owen does the usual connecting of dots expected of mysteries while maintaining the pitiful I've-been-screwed-by-life attitude you would expect of a terminal cancer patient not one whose just may be going blind and especially not one who sees perfectly when required of the plot and otherwise when not. All the while, Tanner has what Rigg describes as a "torrid" affair with his sidekick which is little more than a few seconds in the sack and sees visions (the second sight thing) which are rationalized by some mumbo-jumbo about his medical condition. Pale in comparison with the Brit "Cracker" series, "Second Sight" is little more than par fodder for TV junkies. I gave up on it with about 10 minutes to go in the 2nd DVD. (C+)
