Tru Calling is a unique series full of twists and turns,shocks and thrills,and great storylines to keep you guessing. Throughout the first season Tru comes to terms with her ability and is guided by her mentor and boss,Davis.Calling or curse,love it or hate it,Davis assures her she's the right person for the job,she was chosen for a reason.Tru's other ally is her brother Harrison who takes a while to come to terms with her 'gift'. In the second season Tru and Jack battle against each other to compete for people's lives,involving a new nemesis whom Davis and Tru are unaware of.Tru begins med school and starts to wonder if she can balance her life,can she cope with med school and her secret job?
Unfortunately the second season was cut short due to the show's cancellation in the US.Thirteen episodes were originally ordered but was then cut back to six.In the six episodes produced the writing has improved dramatically and proves itself as a worthy TV show but were shelved before even given a chance. Towards the end of the first season,in a late season twist Tru's 'opposite' makes an appearance to put a stop to Tru's meddling,to 'preserve fate'.Tru's nemesis Jack believes those who are fated to die should stay that way.She saves lives,and he.....takes them.Aswell as the shocking revelations of not only Jack and matters within her family,Tru is devasted as the season finale ends in tragedy as she goes head to head with Jack.But as the season reaches a dramatic climax we see that Jack's meddling has only made her stronger. The series is amazing and is well written with fantastic opening credits and a great theme tune and a great cast.Buffy fans will be enthralled as we see such a contrast of characters from the character of Faith which Eliza played in the Buffy and Angel saga in which she was portrayed as a bad-ass vampire slayer with attitude and a lust for the kill to Tru Davies a young caring,intelligent woman who not only will do anything for her loved one's,but will stop at nothing to save those who were once fated to die.
