Ally Walker stars as Dr. Sam Waters, a detective with the Violent Crimes Task Force, a federal agency which often works with the FBI, ATF, and other crime-solving agencies.
Throughout the series the producers used stylized visual sequences to illustrate Sam's intuitive leaps. Because the show debuted at the same time as the similarly themed Millennium (1996), which stared a profiler with actual psychic abilities illustrated with similar stylized segments, many assumed that Sam was supposed to be psychic. In reality the flashes were never supposed to be psychic. Instead they were supposed to illustrate Sam's thought process as she made intuitive leaps.
Dr. Samantha "Sam" Waters:
Maybe he's destroying perfection.
Bailey Malone: Guess I'd better lock my doors.
Dr. Samantha "Sam" Waters: I think you can rest easy, Bailey.
The actor Dennis Christopher, who plays "Jack", is never credited as Dennis Christopher, the credits just say "and jack". This is because the identity of Jack is a secret (for the characters in the series, they don't know who he is), his identity is unmasked in the first two episodes of the 4th season, from this moment he is credited as "dennis christopher as jack" in the credits. (There are two episodes, where he is credited in his role as "Albert Newquay", in fact, "Albert Newquay" is "Jack", also revealed in the meantioned episodes).
