Did You Know?


After the season finale of the first season, FOX was almost close to canceling the show but didn't because the ratings in the middle of the first season improved and since its competitor NBC's Friends (1994) was on their final season, FOX decided to renew this series and give it another chance. After renewing it for a second season, FOX rolled back the episode order from 13 to 6 on the week of filming the 6th episode. On the last day of filming, the cast and crew were told that the show had been cancelled. See more »

Really Cool!
25 March 2004 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

The show Tru Calling is really cool and I never miss a episode! Except I missed the first episode the night when it premired but luckily I caught a repeat of it. This is the best drama show on Fox since Dark Angel! The show is about a 22 year old girl named Tru Daives who has a brother named Harrison and a older sister named Meredith and their mother was murdered right in front of Tru and when Tru was younger she wished she could go back to the day and prevent death from even happening but a few years later her wish was granted. So at first Tru tries to get a job at a hospital and then she gets a job at a City Morgue and then she gets these powers to go back and prevent people from dying in the first place and also reliving the whole day. The whole going back and reliving the whole day thing sounds pretty cool! Now that this is one of my favorite shows I have a major crush on Eliza Dushku and AJ Cook (who plays Tru's best friend and Harrison's girlfriend, Lindsay). I hope this show does well especially that Jason Priestly is added to the show that will help also.

User Rating: 10/10

BOTTOM LINE: Best Drama TV-series on FOX since Dark Angel!
