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.

A Brilliant, Short-Lived Show!
26 March 2002 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

I began watching "The Chronicle" during the middle of its first season (I was looking for a prospective replacement for "The X-Files"). At first, I found it an odd-blend of sci-fi/mystery/comedy, and in many ways, seemed to be a simple parody of "The X-Files." But I got hooked, and with each new episode, it got better and better.

By the start of its second season, "The Chronicle" finally came into its own! It's storylines were becoming more original and far-out, proving that the writers finally realized that there were no limits to what they could do, and whatever their imaginations could come up with would work (although, some better than others). It even began to develop its own "X-Files"-like mythology that only really picked up halfway through the second season. And then it was canceled.

It's a shame that "The Chronicle" was on for such a short period. Sci-Fi Channel really underestimated the show's ability to entertain. Along with the stories, the cast was excellent (especially Rena Sofer) and they all seemed to have fun making this show.

If you ever get a chance to see the reruns, I'm sure you will love this beautiful, gem of a show. Especially if you're lucky enough to see the episodes "The King is (Un)Dead" (about the vampire-Elvis impersonators) or "A Snitch in Time" (the series-finale).

***1/2 out of ****
