Product Description

Tru Calling's trump cards are its intriguing paranormal premise and the lead performance by the underrated Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), both of which have earned it a small but loyal audience; both of these virtues are preserved in this eight-disc set that includes not only every single episode but a surprising amount of supplemental features. Dushku plays Tru Davies, a young morgue attendant who discovers, much to her dismay, that she can hear the voices of the dead, as well as reverse their fates; with the help of her brother (Shawn Reaves) and boss (Zack Galifianakis), Tru relives the last day of these people's lives in order to prevent their untimely deaths. Episodic highlights include "Valentine," which pits Tru against a serial killer; "Closure," in which a young war hero attempts to reunite with his girlfriend after his death; "Murder in the Morgue," which revolves around the killing of a bride on her wedding day; and "Daddy's Girl," which reveals some disturbing news regarding Tru's past and introduces Jason Priestley as the sinister-seeming Jack Harper, a man with powers similar to hers, but with very different intentions regarding the recently deceased. The eight-disc set includes all the episodes from both series, several featuring commentary by cast and crew; deleted scenes and a music video for Full Blown Rose's theme song, "Can Somebody Help Me," round out the extras. -- Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Tru-ly great value entertainment. 8 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
When I first heard that Eliza Dushku had passed on a Buffy spin-off in order to try something new, I was hugely dissapointed. However, having finally seen that "something new" I am really glad that she did. Tru Calling is a fantastic show: Pacy, twisty and utterly captivating.
The show reminds me a lot of Quantum Leap. Each new episode brings new characters that Tru must engage with in order to, effectively, save the day. The introduction of Tru's nemesis (and opposite) towards the end of the First Season cemented this feeling. However, Tru Calling is by no means a Quantum Leap clone. The show is as much about Tru and her life as it is about the people she must save.
A word of warning: The last two discs of this set contain the second season, which was cancelled after only six episodes. These six episodes are, in my opinion, some of the best in the entire series. However, be prepared to be very disappointed by the lack of closure that the last episode of Season Two brings. So many loose ends are left untied. It's not quite as frustrating as the last episode of Twin Peaks, but it's nearly there.
This DVD set is brilliant value for money. 8 discs for half the price I paid for most of my (6 disc) Buffy box sets when they were released! The special features are entertaning. The deleted scenes don't really add anything new (do they ever?!?) but are fun to watch. Similarly the 4 documentaries (3 about Season one and 1 about Season Two) are fairly standard, but also highly watchable. You also get a music video of the show's theme tune and audio commentaries. All this for less than 30!

5.0 out of 5 stars Help Me! 27 Feb 2005
Format:DVD
Tru Calling is an excellent example of a television show that was given the chance to flourish. The first season starts of quite slow yet interesting with some stand out episodes like "Daddy's Girl" and "The Longest Day". Eliza Dushku fabulously makes Tru seem loveable and sympathetic, whilst Shawn Reeves's character(Harrsion)lights up every episode with his often halarius antics! The first season takes a while to get 'into the swing of things' but the introduction of Jack Harper (played by the haunting Jason Priestly) stirs the plot to the nth degree! - From his initial introduction Jack and Tru have a boiling chemistry that sizzles on screen. The Season finale is a real shocker. From the moment the opening credits begin to the beautiful cover of "In the Air Tonight" the show presents to the world the magnitude of it strength! This episode left me waiting on the edge of my seat, begging for more! - Overall sealing my entire opinion of the show : brilliance.
Upon hearing of the DVD release it was already 'set in stone'that i would buy it the day it came out! Boasting Tru in widescreen not to mention commentaries(ED,SR & JP), 23 deleted scenes, featurettes and easter eggs pretty much sealed the deal for Tru all the way!
The saddening news of the shows cancelation is only lessened by the notion of this DVD including the 6 Season 2 episodes produced! - After all the American DVD is Called TRU CALLING : THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON whilst ours is called TRU CALLING : THE COMPLETE SERIES. - So theres always hope! All i can say is choose this DVD by its merits - Great show, loads of extras(*cough*charmed*cough*)and fantastic value!
- Tru can save me anyday, let her save you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tru Calling - One of the Best! 6 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Tru Davies (Dushku) is a University graduate who is aiming at medical school, after her internship falls through she gets a job at the morgue to impress prospective schools. Davis (Galifianakis) is the doctor in charge of the morgue who takes on Tru. During her first evening at work, she discovers she has a very strange ability.... Bodies ask her for help and she then relives the day. The series then follows Tru's attempts to save the people who ask for her help with the assistance of Davis and her younger, mischievous brother Harrison (Reaves). All the while she struggles to keep the rest of her life together, including trying to keep her successful but druggie sister Meredith
(Collins) on the wagon.
Tru Calling™ is one of the best series I have ever seen. The stories are excellent with the characters learning, and growing throughout the series in an organic fashion. A synthesis of high calibre writing and top notch acting make the characters relationships of the most believable type, especially those between Tru and Davis and Tru and Harrison. All of the component elements from wardrobe & lighting through to make up and set dressing / design are of level rarely seen in television and of a level only seen in the crème de la crème of Hollywood films.
The acting quality throughout the series is of the highest quality, from the regular cast through the guest stars everyone does an excellent job. Eliza Dushku does a brilliant job from the get go, leading a series for the first time and having such an intense schedule (she is on screen for 38 mins of every 41 min episode) and further cements her reputation as one of the most talented young actresses in Hollywood.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cancelled in its prime 6 July 2005
By CJ
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tru Calling is an entertaining premise. Tru, played by the talented Eliza Dusku (Faith of Buffy The Vampire Slayer) works the evening shift in a morgue whilst waiting to apply to Medical School. It is while she is there that she realises that she has a unique ability, whereby people who died before thier time ask for her help and the day rewinds in order that she can alter events and save them.
The first season set up the dynamics of the relationships with Tru having witnessed her mothers death as a child, being detached from her father who has remarried and is closer to his new children than his old, her sister is an career woman with a coke habit and her brother has a gambling habit and is constantly in trouble and mixing with the wrong crowd. We also get to see Tru struggle to come to terms with her gift but eventually receive the assistance of Harrison her brother and Davis her boss (who has excellent comedic timing and plays his role perfectly), whom she confides in.
The main theme of the show however is whether Tru's ability is the right course of action. If people are fated to die, then should she go back in time to save them? What are the consequences for the future caused by someone destined to die living? And this is where the series really picks up towards the end of season one.
We are introduced to Jack, who without giving away too much of the plot, is effectively Tru's opposite. She goes back in time to save lives, but he goes back to keep events from changing and ensure that destiny is fulfilled as it was meant to be. There on we are treated to many plot twists and far more exciting episodes as Tru has not only the challenge of saving the deceased, but also someone trying to stop her.
So why only 4 stars for this series?
