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 »

Please bring back or remake this show!

I loved this show when I was a kid and have rediscovered it just in the past few months. Compared to some of the shows on TV today this one is very good. Louie was a Canadian cross between Groucho Marx and George Costanza. DelGrande's ad-libs are hilarious. I wonder how much funnier the outtakes were.

Sadly, the CBC will probably never bring this out on DVD. Broadcast royalties were part of most contracts for the crews of CBC shows back then so if they were to bring a show out on DVD they would have to pay massive royalties to anyone who was linked to the show, from the stars all the way down to the clapboard clapper.
