Storyline

Tucker Burns is a qualified reporter who can't get a job. He applies for a job at the World Chronicle, where they are delighted to have an over-qualified (by their standards!) reporter on staff. It turns out that all the stories the Chronicle reports are true, but written as tabloid articles so that the public can slowly get acclimated to such things. Aided by photographer Wes and alien abductee/reporter Grace, and backed by his mysterious boss Donald Stern, Tucker investigates, ghosts, aliens, and other supernatural phenomena.

Trivia

In the 11th episode of the 1st season, "Touched by an Alien", a reporter at the staff meeting mentions a government-sponsored Invisible Man project. This is a reference to another SciFi Channel production, The Invisible Man (2000), which shared a building in the San Fernando Valley as well as many crew members and extras. The "invisible locusts ate my crops" tabloid in the final episode ("The New Stuff") of The Invisible Man was meant to be a copy of The Chronicle, but the Network never replied to writer 'Craig Silverstein''s suggestion.

This show is off to a good start, assuming...

...they can keep the writing fresh. I was a bit worried when this show first was announced because it sounded pretty much like it was just going to be a funny version of X-file or First Wave. Sure, that might be cool once or twice, but I thought it wouldn't last too long.

Fortunately, The Chronicle has proven to be freshly written, with some good plots to go along with the humorous writing. I love all the characters, especially Wes(played by Reno Wilson). Overall, the show is very well cast and everyone seems to be aware of what their characters are supposed to be like.

My only concern is that this show may not prove to remain strong for more than two seasons or so. It's written by Sylvio Horta, who is mostly known for his "Urban Legend" movies. Both those films were interesting at first, but withered into mundane garbage. I hope this show doesn't do the same. I have heard that the cast has really bonded and would hate to see them fall prey to writers whose abilities get exhausted.

I give this show *** out of **** stars. Worth a watch if you like Sci-Fi. Probably won't pull you in if you aren't particularly in to the genre.
