Trivia

The EMT that Tru meets on her first night at the morgue may have been purposefully named "Marco" in homage to the children's game "Marco Polo". When Tru hears a noise and goes looking through the deserted morgue, she calls for "Marco", the traditional signal for someone hidden to yell back "Polo!" See more »

The first episode of "Tru Calling" is admirable for the way it a) introduces the main characters of the show, b) gives them a backstory, c) sets up a daring sci-fi premise, d) tells the first story based on that premise - and it manages to do all that in about 40 minutes! The premise is more than a little reminiscent of "Groundhog Day" (Tru gets to re-live a day that everybody else is living for the first time and she has the opportunity to change things) but it adds the element of whodunit (she must figure out what happened in the original timeline so that she can make the right changes). The experienced director Phillip Noyce sets a breathless pace (the rewind/transition effects are very well-done), and series creator Jon Harmon Feldman writes a twisty first tale. Of course the fact that Eliza Dushku is one of the fittest and most beautiful women in the world does not hurt, either. *** out of 4.
