5.0 out of 5 stars Criminally cut down in its prime, 10 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Tru Calling - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
This is a brilliant show with something for everyone.

I got this box set for my birthday knowing very little about the show other than it having the wonderful Eliza Dushku as the star and watched the first episode with my partner. Usually we have completley different tastes in telly and disagree on what makes a good show but with this show we were both completley blown away!

The first is a brilliant start that keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way through. The story lines are generally of a high quality with only a couple of episodes being below the grade (they are still good episodes just not the really high quality that you get used to with this show.

The acting in this show is the strongest i have ever seen in a show! ALL of the regular characters are brilliant with no exceptions! Eliza Dushku plays the 22 year old Tru brilliantly and you really empathise with her life and struggles caused by her 'gift'. Shawn Reaves provides a great counterpoint to eliza and brings alot of the laughs to the show (without ever spoiling the atmosphere of the episode) Zach Galifianakis is truly inspired as the geeky morgue boss Davis who helps Tru to save people and Jason Priestley who comes in to the show late in the first series plays the part of jack brilliantly and steals a lot of the scenes he shares with Eliza.

That this show was cut before really finding its format is criminal i have watched all the first season and the first 3 of the 6 season 2 episodes and the 3 episodes from season 2 are the strongest of them all so far (barring maybe season one's finale.

I urge everyone to buy this box set and after you have contact FOX and beg them to get it back on the air!
