College student Marian Kitt is terrified to discover that she has the power to see into the "other side." Word of Marian's vision spreads to Professor Miles Ballard, a student of paranormal and psychic phenomena. He introduces Marian to "the others," a group of individuals with the ability to vicariously experience the feelings, thoughts and experiences of others, and to help them understand paranormal phenomena. Famed medium Elmer Greentree is their spiritual leader and a mentor figure for Marian, whose potential to see "all of the light" is strong. With Marian now among them, they will help each other understand their abilities as they encounter otherworldly, often frightening, alternative dimensions. And all the while, a dark force looms over them. Written by
Marian Kitt (Julianne Nicholson) transfers to a new college. She starts having nightmarish visions in her dorm room which is driving away her friends. Prof. Miles Ballard (John Billingsley) suggests that she has psychic abilities to see the girl who died in that room a year earlier. He's a professor of folklore and myths. He recruits her into his group of special people. Mark Gabriel (Gabriel Macht) is an ER doctor with empathetic skills. Ellen 'Satori' Polaski (Missy Crider) works as a psychic. The group includes Elmer Greentree (Bill Cobbs), aspiring writer Warren Day (Kevin J. O'Connor), and blind Albert McGonagle.
The pilot is a ghost story with limited action. The show evolves into one with an ongoing threat and demons. It takes awhile before the show comes up with that big bad. It lasted 13 episodes. It would have been more compelling to start the show with a villain as a main character. The demons are too nebulous and too powerful taking on any form. It doesn't help that the order of the episodes is jumbled up. The cast is solid and their chemistry is great together. It would be nice if their abilities are more defined and specific to each character. It is overall a reasonable supernatural show with a good cast but some difficulties.
