A real look at Tru Calling, forget what you've heard, these are the facts...
Tru Calling, it's hard to review Tru Calling as it's either a show that's loved or hated, I think that's become clear with different people's opinions on the show. I don't think I've read someone who's on the border of liking and disliking a show. I personally love and adore the show.

Eliza is top notch as Tru Davies, she's believable in her role, not making it too over the top. Her co-stars, Jason Priestly and Scott Reeves compliment Eliza perfectly, most notably Scott. For an underrated actor, who I personally hadn't heard of before the show, he holds up his performance alongside Eliza perfectly. He's believable as the rebellious son, but heartwarming as the loving brother of Tru. Jason Priestly, a late addition to the series cast plays the perfect villain against Tru. He's confident, smug and full of himself, he's everything that Tru isn't, it makes the character work.

The episodes are interesting, unique in there on way, it's not just a simple case of Tru goes back and saves someone, there's different twists that can effect the outcome of her reliving the day. Highlights for me of the first season include the Pilot, the shocking Daddy's Girl, Reunion, Valentine and the 2 part season finale D.O.A and Two Weddings and a Funeral. With the shocking twists that come along the season, Daddy's Girl sets up the series arc brilliantly, it's even furthered by the end of the 2nd part of the season finale. This show has a lot more depth than what it's given credit for.

Most people automatically snub this show because Eliza choose to do it over a Faith spin off from Buffy and Angel. I'm the biggest Buffy/Angel fan and would have loved to see a spin-off. But Tru Calling is an amazing show, that has proven it can hold it's own. Forget the negative comments you've heard about the show. Yes there are flaws, but the hour of enjoyment you receive outweighs them completely.

The only thing I really can say about Tru Calling is that it stumbled in it's first few episodes, gaining it's feet, and this was obvious while watching the episodes, however the writers managed to get the show into a good motion and by the middle of the series it turns out to be one of the only good shows currently airing on TV. With the loss of Buffy, Angel, Friends and Wonderfalls. Good TV is short in quantity, networks clearing these shows to make room for more reality shows that we really have no interest in anymore.

Personally I'd recommend Tru Calling to anyone who was a fan of Buffy or Angel, or anyone who loves supernatural, drama and comedy shows. Forget what the haters say, judge Tru Calling for yourself.
