"Tru Calling" was a television show that ran for 1 season on Fox before being abruptly canceled prior to the airing of the first six completed episodes of what was shaping up to be a phenomenal second season. Well, at least it fared better than Firefly. Sorry, it still hurts. The show starred girl-of-my-dreams Eliza Dushku (of Buffy/Angel fame) as a morgue attendant, Tru Davies, who gains a unique supernatural power. The dead bodies she attends occasionally ask her for help and she finds herself instantly transported back to the moment she awoke that morning and charged with saving the life of the corpse she just encountered. It's a simple set-up for what proves to be a formulaic but very entertaining show that deserved much better than it got.

Honestly, Eliza Dushku herself is reason enough to go out and buy this. The girl is just a joy to watch onscreen. She has girl-next-door likability, great acting talent, plenty of attitude, and a damn sexy voice. Also: quite pretty, yes? But the writing for "Tru Calling" is also top-notch and manages to keep things interesting at all times in spite of the episodic nature of the stories. You'll be surprised at how inventive and compelling some of the stories are. One finds Tru reliving the same day four separate times as every night after saving the life, another corpse turns up as a result and sends her back to the start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tru Calling truly good. January 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I never seen this show while it ran for a little over a season, but I caught a glimpse of a re-run and fell in love with it. I ordered the complete series on DVD here off of Amazon. I started watching the series, and could not get enough of it. The characters all blended well, and I have NO idea why this show was canceled. It should have ran for many more years. Eliza Dushku as Tru did an amazing heart felt job in every episode. I don't think a better actress could be found for this part. Jason Priestley as Jack was simply amazing. I found myself agreeing with the character "Jack" in his outlook on what he did to preserve the laws of fate.
Shawn Reaves as Harrison, the half bad boy good guy of the show made for an entertaining watch. Shawn Reaves as Davis was outstanding in his performance, I always thought he had a "thing" for Tru, and I can't blame him. I enjoyed the whole premise of this show. All in all a great show, and worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tru... Help Me February 19, 2009
Format:DVD
Tru Calling was an excellent series. It was the supernatural type show which was great. Tru (Eliza Dushku) see's and helps Dead People.

Short Summary: Tru gets a job at the city morgue only to learn that she can relive days. The dead bodies that come into the morgue asks Tru for her help so she relives the days to try and help them survive. She has to go back and try to find clues as to who is trying to kill the people or how the wreck happens so she can prevent it from happening. After a few episodes Tru starts telling people that she helps the dead including her Brother Harrison and the morgue worker Davis and they help her solve the cases. Towards the end of the first season a guy name Jack comes in and there is conflict between Tru and Jack because she tries to save the souls and Jack tries to prevent her from doing her job.

This was a truly remarkable show. I only wish that it was on for more than 2 seasons. If you like the supernatural type shows then I think you'll like this tv show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Entertaining! April 25, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had never ever heard of this series while it was on, however, a buyer who knew I liked paranormal/sci-fi programs (any 4400 fans out there?) recommended it to me. So, without even renting it, I just purchased the entire series and "whoa!" I loved it! Now it's not 4400, the story lines are simpler but extremely creative at times. Most of the time, it has you guessing who, what, where. Even when it's predictable, it's still fun and entertaining. The characters are well thought out, good and bad. They really keep you wanting more. I like that. I have an idea that they're going to end it abruptly (like 4400) though. Too bad this never caught on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Save Me January 6, 2009
By Amy
Format:DVD
Imagine having the power to not only save lives, but to alter fate and destiny. Tru Davies, in this series, has the power to rewind a day and save the life of someone who was taken away before their time.

Eliza Dushku stars in "Tru Calling" as Tru Davies. Tru works at the morgue. She frequently gets whispers from corpses that come into the morgue. At first, the whispers are soft, but they increase in urgency as the severity of each case increases.

They usually ask her to 'save them', which then causes Tru's day to rewind and she is forced to relive the day until the person asking for help is saved. Sometimes Tru is forced to search extra hard to find clues to save each individual person, and sometimes Tru is forced to save more than one person.

The show really picks up once Tru discovers she has an opposite. Jason Priestly enters the show as the character Jack, who has all the powers that Tru has; the ability to talk to the dead and to rewind and relive days. However, unlike Tru, he chooses to use his powers to prevent Tru from saving people. He believes that there was a reason why they died.

Unfortunately, this was when Fox decided to axe the show, so this show has no real conclusion at the moment.

2.0 out of 5 stars A sad comedown for a good actor
Stick with Dollhouse where Eliza really shows her acting ability. Don't bother with this trashy conception. The story line is flat and none of the actors have any room to grow
