The ambulance used by the main characters is an unmarked ambulance, and their uniforms do not reflect the name of the service they work for. See more »

Written with the story in focus
4 July 2014 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Toby Logan is a paramedic which can read thoughts. The series evolve around him and a few other key characters solving crimes using his ability.

Many shows and movies trying to start from something supernatural, only manages to produce a superficial action/horror/fantasy flick. The interest ends after the idea has been introduced - there is just nothing more to it - just some generic story and actors doing a decent job delivering the lines.

I stumbled onto the third season and immediately had to watch the entire series from the beginning. The Listener has truly engaging characters and a smart story which drives the series. The characters are fun, warm and real. The story is usually quite smart and there is a larger story which is handled throughout the seasons. It feels like a real story told in steady pace without the need to leave cliffhangers.

This beats so much nervous audience adapted crap that is produced today, where the story and characters are changed after each episode after reviewing the ratings and focus group opinions. The writers are not left alone to follow an idea undisturbed to the end - everyone are just nervous and there is no room for artistic talent.

If you like me are soooo tired of nervous cliffhanger series which may be canceled any minute, I truly recommend this show! It's going into the 5th season - watch it from the start and enjoy it and get to know the characters.
