Storyline

Michael Raines uses his imagination to "discuss" the case of a murdered young woman with the victim. She was found shot in the back in a parking lot surrounded by cash. Raines soon discovers the woman was a prostitute, but was using her skills to save money to help her mother start a new life. Among the suspects: her possibly abusive father, a private detective she was working with, a man she was possibly having an affair with, (and his wife). Motives might include blackmail, jealousy, greed, or just a random crime.As well as bouncing his ideas off the dead woman, Raines also discusses his ideas with his former partner, who was shot on duty and is no longer with the police force.

In the 18th minute of the pilot, Sandy opens the car door to get in with Raines, which she couldn't do as a figment of his imagination. If the car door was really open, then someone else would have seen it. See more »

Pilot Episode
11 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went to Universal Studios two Saturdays ago, and I was fortunate enough to watch this show and paid 15 dollars to do so. Who wouldn't love to see a show with Mr. Jeff Goldblum on it? I loved it. I don't watch Medium nor have I ever seen an episode, but if I did, I suppose I would see similarities between the two. As far as I know, Raines is a bit unique. Jeff Goldblum is detective Raines and every time he is assigned to a case, he sees the victim as a figment of his imagination. The victims talk back to him, but they only know what he knows. And, they will not go away until he solves a case. It's clever, I think. Oh, and the quips are pretty funny.

I think the show will do well.

Jeff Goldblum is amazing. lol.
