Editorial Reviews

2-Disc Collector’s Edition Contains All 6 Season Two Episodes!

It’s been two months since Tru and Jack last met in a deadly confrontation in which Tru saved the life of her brother, but she was ultimately thwarted when Jack evened the score by taking the life of her boyfriend. After that night, Jack disappeared—but now he’s back with a vengeance. His renewed efforts to make sure the dead stay dead only make Tru more determined to carry on her murdered mother’s legacy of saving those who die before their time. But also back in town is Tru’s estranged father who, although claiming he wants to forge new relationships with his son and daughter, has his own secret agenda which is anything but fatherly in intent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tru Calling Ended Too Soon February 14, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved the premise of the show. This woman has the ability to save lives and does everything she can to, to the detriment of her own personal life does so. Eliza Dushku is a great actor and highly underrated. I loved her on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and she continues to prove her talent in Tru Calling. Shawn Reaves is talented and adds not just drama but certain type of comic relief. Jason Priestly, what can I say that hasn't already been said. He's not only extremely talented, but incredibly charming. He's got what they call in Hollywood the "it" quality. Rob Duncan who scores the show does a wonderful job. He did the final episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and it what an amazing work of art. He is quite the musical artist. I bought this DVD set without ever having seen any of it on television, trusting that the casting and creative people behind the scene would be enough for me to be assured that I would like it. Not only do I like it, but I love it. My only regret is that they didn't give the show a fair chance. It still had a lot of room for more great story telling and character development. You won't be wasting your money on this set Seasons one and Two.

5.0 out of 5 stars If Only We Could Go Back And Save This Show August 5, 2005
By Andrew
Format:DVD
I guess that I should be thankning FOX for even producing these six episodes, let alone airing and releasing them. At the end of the first season, ratings were low, and I, along with all the other Tru Calling fans out there, were sure that it would be cancelled. But it wasn't. FOX decided to give the struggling show a second chance now that Friends (which aired at the same time) was ending. However, after only six episodes were produced, FOX decided to pull the plug, and put on a different show instead. Months later, after the show was cancelled due to poor ratings, the network decided to fill the timeslot by airing these episodes.

Anyway, Luc (Matthew Bomer) has been dead for a few months now. Tru (Eliza Dushku), Harrison (Shawn Reaves), and Davis (Zach Galifianakis) have continued to work together in order to save the lives of people who post-mortemly ask Tru for help. And Jack (Jason Priestly), who is Tru's opposite, is nowhere to be found. Jack tries to make sure that the bodies that ask for Tru's help stay dead when both of their days rewind. Anyway, Harrison has given up his old life of gambling and scamming, and has chosen to go straight in life with a normal job. Soon, Tru and Harrison's father Richard Davies (Cotter Smith), who was last seen working with Jack against his children, has moved back into the city where they live (still unnamed) in order to "get closer to his kids". He even offers Harrison a job at his law firm. Around the same time as Richard's arrival comes Jack's return, and the game is on again.

Jack indirectly caused the death of Tru's old boyfriend Luc, which has caused their already bitter relationship to escalate to new levels of hatred.

5.0 out of 5 stars I hope another network gives this show a second chance January 15, 2006
Format:DVD
I never caught season one of this show when it was on television, but instead when Fox asked me to review the season one set for DVD. At that point Fox seemed to be playing up the release of that season as season two was set to appear in the fall. Then fall came and went and I was confused by the fact that this show which had proved to watchable and became addicted to over the course of reviewing the first season was nowhere to be found on the schedule. The first few episodes would eventually find their way on TV, but months after Fox had decided to cancel it. It is hardly surprising therefore that they did not invest the same energy in promoting the second season.

It really is a shame that Fox pulled the plug on this entertaining show just as the second season was gathering steam. It's such a great show and Eliza Dushku (Faith from BUFFY and Arnie's daughter from TRUE LIES) is so good in it. Dushku plays Tru Davies, a medical student who works at the morgue to help pay her way through Medical school. She learns that she has the power to relive the previous day and save people from death. However countering her efforts is Jack (played by Jason Priestley) who is intent on keeping things the way they are and preventing Tru from completing her mission. They also tried to do some things different in these episodes, not resting on their success in the previous season.

I hope that soon another network will pick up Tru Calling and we will get more episodes in the future.

The Season 2 set contains the five episodes aired, one unaired episode and a making-of-featurette:

Disc 1

Ep. 1 - Perfect Storm: Jack returns and attempts to stop Tru from saving the life of a female Harbor Patrol Officer, who the previous day drowned answering an SOS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daring to be Different = Cancelled October 1, 2005
Format:DVD
Why is it that whenever a show breaks away from the precedents of molding the crime scene or ghost interacting moldings, they are quick to be cancelled? It was worse enough that CBS has decided to pull the plug on one of their best non-criminal based shows Joan of Arcadia after it took a dark turn with the series finale dealing with foreshadowing of Joan in the middle of good and evil, now they decide to cancel Tru Calling.

Yes, Tru Davies did talk to dead people. However, it wasn't in the Jennifer Love Hewitt/ Patricia Arquette formula where her purpose is to make them feel complete by solving their "unfinished business." No, Tru was meant to prevent their deaths, which is the twist that primetime TV needed.

The first season of Tru Calling seemed a little desperate to grab viewer's attentions, especially with the recurring role of Jack Harper (Jason Priestly) as her complete opposite. But the bickering between Jack and Tru, the race to either save a life or prevent it from being saved, is really what brought in those 4 million audiences. If there was a major complaint in the first season it is that Tru never seemed to reach a limit with Jack. Maybe it was because she is known as the fierce ass-kicking Faith in Buffy, but in the episode "Two Weddings and A Funeral," her encounter with Jack at the funeral lead me to thinking that she would ressurect her old Faith ways on Jack, but instead it was just verbal resentment - something I loathe when I know she can do some damange.

The second season showed much promise, as the stories got deeper as well as the character development. Harrison was on the verge of cleaning up his gambling life while stumbling across daddy's plans to prevent Tru from saving lives.
