Synopsis


In the opening episode of Tru Calling's first season, impoverished medical grad student Tru Davies (Eliza Dushku) takes a night-shift job at a Boston morgue. In short order, she discovers that she has the ability to communicate with one of the corpses -- which leads to the discovery of another gift, that of being able to relive the events of the past 24 hours, and thereby save the corpse from an untimely death. While this state of affairs is beneficial to those on the slab, it sometimes posed serious and potentially fatal problems for Tru, her chronic-gambler brother, Harrison (Shawn Reaves); her drug-addicted sister Meredith (Jessica Collins); and her boss and co-worker, Davis (Zach Galifianakis). There are several standout episodes during season one of Tru Calling. In "The Longest Day," Tru's efforts to rescue one of her "clients" results in a Groundhog Day dilemma in which the same day is repeated over and over, with no end in sight. In "Valentine," Tru tries to arrange past events to thwart a serial killer, only to set up a premise whereby one of her best friends will be the killer's next victim. In "Past Tense," our heroine really has her hands full when five corpses simultaneously beg for her help. And in the season finale, "Two Weddings and a Funeral," Tru battles with her archrival, Jack Harper (Jason Priestley) -- who possesses the same psychic "gift" that she has, only to use it for sinister purposes -- with the life of her own brother in the balance.

    This show was cancelled too soon- I remember looking forward to the airing of each episode and how upset I was that it ended. I was thrilled when I came across this complete collection of the show. I was holding out, hoping for a blu ray edition, but I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen. This set still has enough bonus content to make it worthwhile, plus I've enjoyed binge watching the series again 15 years after it's original airing. I think the next Eliza Dushku series I need to buy will be "Dollhouse"- I forgot how entertaining she is in these types of roles!

    truly a great gem. Other than buffy the vampire slayer this is one of my personal favorite shows Eliza has been a part of. A remarkable show that deserved more than two seasons.

    This was before the fascination with vampires etc...Tru risks everything to save a life. Even her own life at times. And she's pretty too.
