Pretty good addition to "psychic" TV shows
24 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's Medium, Ghost Whisperer, The Mentalist, Psych ... and now this. It's pretty cool that the creators were able to find an untapped niche in this crowded space.

The lead character, a paramedic, either voluntarily "reads" thoughts of others or involuntarily "receives" strong thoughts/emotions. His limitation is that he can only do it when in their presence and only gets what's currently in their mind.

On the plus side, the tone is serious, the acting is good and the stories are mostly interesting. On the negative side, the female police detective is entirely uncredible and a bit of pain to watch. Her character is written to present resistance to the psychic (she doesn't want his help), but the situation is ridiculous (even given a later disclosure of why). She knows what he can do and he regularly presents her with relevant, critical information ... but she still doesn't want his help. It's a poorly conceived attempt at creating tension and challenge.

Even so, the show is worth watching. Like Medium, getting bits of information and then figuring out how to extract the bigger story is an interesting thing to watch. While the writing isn't quite as good as Medium, it's still pretty good.
