Tru Calling - a True Gem,
By A Customer
This review is from: Tru Calling - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Tru calling is a rare suprise - a TV series that entertains consistently show after show. I bought the series after reading the description and although I had never seen it, it has a similar premise to 'Early Edition' a show that we also enjoyed.
Tru Calling is great family viewing and our teenage children and 'the oldies' sit down and watch it together. A real treat you should not miss (none of us can understand why the series was pulled).

Ms T. D. McCormick says:
It is indeed a mystery why this was pulled . Dollhouse was also pulled !!
In my opinion it is because it is too inteligent for the USA market.
Buffy worked because it could be watched by everyone . The intelligent people could get the humour and the subtleties but there was enough gore and action to entertain the not -so intelligent .
Dollhouse and Tru Calling only appeal to the intelligent viewer. Advertising revenue is the controlling factor in America so if a show does not appeal to the market that the sponsors are aiming for then the show will be in "danger" , Fortunately some programme makers ignore all that and turn out good stuff regardless ! A big thank you to Feldman and Whedon for their diligence. !!
