Storyline

Los Angeles. Present day. Michael Raines, an eccentric but brilliant cop, solves murders in a very unusual way - he turns the victims into his partners. These visions are figments of Raines' imagination, and he knows it, but when he can't make the dead disappear, he works with them to find the killer. Through his discussions, along with the evidence, Raines' image of the victim changes until he has a clear picture of what really happened. Only when the case is closed do the visions end. Other detectives question Raines' sanity, and occasionally so does he. However, as long as his unique methods are helping catch criminals, Raines imagines he'll be just fine.

Excellent!
11 April 2007 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

Since the days of Tenspeed and Brownshoe, I've looked forward to another hit Goldblum TV Series. I'm thoroughly enjoying this foray into the world of the paranormal via Goldblum, and I'll tell you why. Goldblum himself exhibits some quirky mannerisms, which lends something tangible and pro-active to the venue.

So far the show is just getting started, and I'm not looking forward to a Summer hiatus, but I'm excited as to where this show will go in the future. So far every episode I've seen has been highly entertaining, exuding the Goldblum charm and mystique, leading me to look forward to the next installment.

The show is worthy of a better time slot, but I'm willing to stick with it while it pays its dues. Frankly, the quality of performances, writing, and direction have already elevated this work, in my opinion. Hopefully soon the execs will realize this, too.

This is totally entertaining and very enjoyable. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in Goldblum, psychics, New Age, clairvoyance, or just being completely entertained.

It rates a 10/10 on the TV Scale from...

the Fiend :.
