Storyline

Johnny Smith has been leading an idyllic small-town life. Employed as a science teacher, Johnny takes great pleasure in showing his young students the wonders of the natural world. He is also newly-engaged to a loving fiancée named Sarah, a fellow teacher he's known since childhood, and is a good son to his widowed mother, who lives nearby. Johnny's life is nearly perfect, until the day his life is interrupted by a nearly fatal car crash that leaves him in a deep coma. Six years later, Johnny finally regains consciousness and discovers that life as he once knew it has completely changed. His mother has passed away, and Sarah has gone on to marry someone else, and now has a son. But Johnny himself is also not the same person he once was: he now finds himself in possession of amazing psychic powers which allow him to see into the lives of anyone he touches.

Pleasantly surprised!
28 June 2002 | by walkinghorse1964See all my reviews

I had fears of bad acting and gaping plot holes but I was pleasantly surprised! The scripts so far have been very nicely done and the characters don't seem to have that awkwardness with each other that is usually associated with a new show (can anyone say Star Trek: Next Generation? Uuuggh, that first season stank). These actors mesh well together and I hope that USA sticks to their guns and allows this series to ramp up and expand. It seems to be well on its way to being a worthwhile hit.
