Storyline

Louis Ciccone is a reporter for the Toronto Gazette, but life's given him a forced side activity. This is due to his inconvenient power as a postcognitive, a person who is able to see visions of past events. These visions are always related to a murder of a person he encounters by happenstance. While he cannot control these visions or trigger them voluntarily, they do provide vital leads and clues that allow him to investigate the crime. This leads him into the strangest situations as he investigates them Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Did You Know?

Crazy Credits

When this series was rerun on the Canadian cable network Showcase in the mid-1990s, the network chose to precede each episode with a disclaimer advising viewers that the series - produced only a few years earlier - "does not necessarily depict" the way relationships between men and women were treated in the 1990s. This politically correct disclaimer was roundly criticized by viewers and the media, and was eventually dropped by the network. See more »

My favorite Canadian TV show of all time
21 December 2002 | by donmchoullSee all my reviews

This show is fantastic. It has just the right combination of funny and spooky. The characters are great, the mysteries are really interesting, and it has this great 80's Toronto setting.

Louis is a great character, sort of like a Canadian reporter version of George from Seinfeld. And I love the vision sequences, with the zoom in on his eyes and the crazy music.

Some people say that the latter seasons weren't as good, but I wouldn't agree with that. Sure the show did get a bit crazy a times, but it still worked.

Everything about this show is good. I'd really have to say it's my favorite Canadian TV show of all time.

Someone should really broadcast this show again.
