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

Bought this to replace a previous boxset that had got damaged.
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!
A show that gets cancelled after a season or so can't be very good right? Plus it crossed my mind maybe in my mid thirties I may be a bit old for this fantasy lark.And Eliza Dushku I thought at the time I had only seen in Bring It On (I didn't make the connection with the girl in True Lies and This Boys Life!).V pretty but could she really carry a show?
But at the end of the day the price of under a tenner was too hard to resist.
Of course my first concern should have been immediately discounted as studio executives famously don't have a clue.As proved yet again by this show!As for my second you are never too old for well written,well directed and well acted drama and Tru Calling is all three.A word for the support cast who are all very good and very very watchable, especially Shawn Reaves who I thought worked superbly well with Eliza as her wayward brother.
But it is Ms Dushku's show.As another reviewer noted she is on screen for virtually the entire running time yet she never hits a false note which requires a lot more than good looks and charm,though of course she has both.
All in all quality U.S. television.
Not sure if its the best ten pounds I ever spent but certainly the best ten pounds I ever spent online!
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!
