Storyline

The inspiring and provocative series is back for a second season tapping into the universal fantasy: to be given a second chance to fix an error of the past. Every episode features a guest star playing a flawed person who dies suddenly. Waiting for him on the other side are two celestial figures: a guide, Mr. Smith, and Judge Othniel. The person is given the chance to return to earth and to a time when he went astray. Guided by Mr.Smith, the character has three days to cajole his younger self to not make the same mistake. By changing history, he can alter the future and the course of other lives affected by him. It is not easy as it first appears because the character must overcome deep biases and character flaws. Mr. Smith, who doesn't remember his own life on earth and death, struggles to make sense of human nature and to unravel the mysteries of the Universe. But by guiding others, he hopes to earn his own second chance. Written by Betty Palik

16 July 2000 | by (Medicine Hat, Alberta) – See all my reviews

Hi. Yesterday I watched the "Twice In A Lifetime" episode with the guy Barry who was in a band when he was younger, and "the love of his life" over-dosed on drugs. He went back to save her life, it didn't work, so he used the last 30 minutes to go back and save her life. He did succeed. However, later on in his life, she eventually did OD. Anyways, I am looking for the song that was major in this episode. I really loved it, and wanted to know where I could get a copy of it. If anyone knows where I could, please email me. Please, and thanks
