Storyline

Steven Matrix is one of the underworld's foremost hitmen until his luck runs out, and someone puts a contract out on him. Shot in the forehead by a .22 pistol, Matrix "dies" and finds himself in "The City In Between", where he is shown the faces of all the men and women he's murdered and a sea of fire. He's informed that he will be given a second chance. He must earn a reprieve from Hell by helping others. He then wakes up in the hospital, after an apparent "near death" experience. In each episode, Matrix meets a new "guide" from the world beyond, and is given a new assignment, much in the manner of an unwilling guardian angel. Usually his guides give him little or no useful information about the job to come, and his methods of handling the cases are sometimes as brutal as the rules of his old profession, but he gets the job done.

The Matrix was a great television program
17 May 2006 | by asilcox07See all my reviews

The way the program was filmed has now given rise to programs such as "24" to be filmed in the same way. When comparing The Matrix to a program such as "24", you have to think about how times have changed in the past 10 years and yet how they have virtually remained the same. Stephen Matrix would fight evil to save the person who needed help and himself from an eternity in hell. Jack Bauer has to fight evil in order to save his family yet do it within his own letter of the law. It was enjoyable and I had a great time watching it. The many different actors turned directors who worked both before and behind the cameras was immense and now even more actors are getting the chance to actually film their own programs more often. The Matrix took me out of the more boring simple life that I lead and let my mind think about how my life was not as bad as it was for some of the characters on the program. I look forward to it coming out on DVD.
