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>

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 »

I Don't Get It
29 July 2018 | by worthwoodSee all my reviews

I admit I am fully in the minority here. Canadians universally loved this show about a reporter who has visions. I admit I like the actor a lot and the comedy made me laugh often. The "vision" sequences especially were a lot of fun, with the camera zooming in on his eyes and oddball music playing.

I don't think the show was bad I just could never really get into it. I thought the stories were kind of predictable and the oddball humour wore off on me after a few episodes.

Would love to see it remade though and I wish the star of this show was in more stuff! He really was likable and a good actor.
