Erica's life is finally going great, both personally and professionally. But the fact that December 13th is approaching is weighing heavily on her mind, that date being the anniversary of Leo's death, which is still her biggest regret in life. Leo died at the age of 21 in a barn fire at her grandmother's farm, the fire that appears to be an accident of Leo's own doing. The farm is now the unofficial grave site where the family visits only once a year to mourn. Erica wants things to change, to make Leo's memory more of a happy thought than a somber one. Her idea is to rebuild the barn as both a cathartic exercise and a standing memorial to Leo. This task ends up being difficult for Barb, who cannot let go of how she grieves for her son. Before sending Erica back to that time to allow her to say goodbye to her brother, Dr. Tom stresses to her that her therapy does not allow her to play God to bring back the dead, and that there are dire consequences if she tries to do so. Once back, ... Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


In this episode, Gary (Erica's father) wears a shirt with a drawing of the Vulcan salute and the Vulcan greeting "Live Long and Prosper" on it. This has a double meaning. Presumably, it means that Gary is a fan of the television series "Star Trek" and its spin-off series and movies. But it is also a reference to Gary's profession; Gary is a rabbi, and the Vulcan gesture was created by Spock actor Leonard Nimoy, who took the hand motion from a ritual gesture that is a traditional part of a Jewish prayer called the Birkat Kohanim. Nimoy, the son of Orthodox Jewish immigrants from the Ukraine, grew up seeing the gesture performed by his rabbis during synagogue services. See more »

Heart wrenching
19 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I looked up videos on IMDb for time travel as I have just finished with a TV Series and found Being Erica. I don't watch TV. per say, well series, as I get caught up in them and hate waiting for the next episode to air. Usually I wait till there is at least 3 years, or the series is gone. I will read about the series here and other places, weigh the pros and cons. Before I even see 1 episode I will have a full working idea what to expect.

Till you see with your own eyes you can't really form an opinion.

I now have 4 years of Being Erica to watch, and being in the USA we don't get it here.

Over the past week I've had the pleasure viewing one of the best series I have ever seen.

Erin Karpluk is great as Erica Strange. Michael Riley as Dr. Tom fits perfect.

Thou the story at times goes in very odd directions, and at some time you wish that episode was never filmed. You see it for what it has to offer the viewer. Both the good and bad come out in this TV. Series.

When Erica sees her brother after he has been dead for years, you can almost put your self in her shoes and feel the joy and pain. Knowing what is right and wrong has no effect on Erica, nor would it have any effect on you or me. To save the life of someone you love, you would be amazed at what you will do.

Saving Leo was bad, and now she must loose him again and again.
