The one and only official "official"Tru calling thread...

5 x 5!
here's a link to the first 13 minutes of episode 1 of Tru calling (aka run eliza run).
I think it's the same as the pilot but I haven't watched it all the way through...

Seen the pilot, it sucks soooooo much.:blah:

Eliza is ok in it but I thought it was an badly scripted overdone idea.

and because it sucks soooooooo much (as cluderi said earlier). They're going to need to do some serious work on this to make it remotely watchable, if the pilot's anything to go by.

I hadn't realised that it was up against Friends, it wont stand a chance and certainly Friends will be taking the slot on my PVR over this.

It is a pretty poor storyline although its worth it just to see eliza bouncing down the street in that top

I'd ignored this show cos the pilot wasn't spectacular and everyone said it was going to be cancelled so quickly, but it looks like it's still going after at least 10 episodes.

So, is it any good. :confused:

Fox obviously asked the producers to make the show accessible to dumbasses. If you can put up with the infuriating "here's what just happened 5 seconds ago!" flashback sequences that occur every time something happens that relates to something earlier in the story, and don't mind the "earlier tonight on Tru Calling" recap of the episode at the half-way point, then it's a reasonably enjoyable show.

The recap bit is annoying, but I am enjoying it, i've been watching it from the pilot.

I watched the pilot a while back Dushku was good, but the pilot
itself was a bit "nyehh", seen it all before.

Didn't bother with the rest, might catch it if it gets picked up for broadcast in the UK. ( No news on that front so far, maybe Sky used up their budget buying 24

I gave up on it pretty quickly, I thought it wasted the decent premise and turned into yet another "cop" show.

The supporting actors I found annoying and, as TheFly said, it's incredibly dumbed down. Pointless recaps and Tru practically turning to camera and telling us how she's solved the mystery.

I don't remember that. While the reaction was lukewarm it wasn't something that was expected to be cancelled quickly

The recaps were annoying but helpful if you tune in late. They weren't on the last episode and maybe the one before that.

Well, in this very thread, Rypro525 suggested it wouldn't last long vs Survivor and Friends and Kryten concurred. I've also read that assessment elsewhere on the web. Of course, by 'not last long' they could just have meant they'd change when it's on, and I got the wrong end of the stick. Wouldn't be the first time!

Personally, I didnt give this show much hope. Early episodes were very predictable & did little with the concept ... Buuuuut after half-a-dozen shows or so, it got much better & i'm enjoying it. The "Groundhog" episode in particular was impressive.

Definitely a grower.
