Liking this show, even the "new" direction they've been heading into since season 2. BUT REALLY, would it kill them to write more about Toby's past? How could they completely ignore the entire essence of season 1? Waiting for SOMETHING to come back up but I think we'll be waiting a while for any background info, if at all. Don't hold your breath

I enjoyed the first season of this show some time ago and recently came back to it and started watching from the second season. I'm now half-way in to the fourth. I know what most people are thinking and don't worry I'm not going to start hating on the show about the direction it has taken! In fact, I love the way things are going. They managed to keep the EMS side of things interesting and also maintain most of the relationships Toby has had since season one as well as add some very interesting scenarios with his newly found career. The only thing that has disappointed me thus far is there has been nothing in relation to Toby's gift or his past like in season one! WHY??? Isn't there enough room for the writers of this series to add some twists and turns once in awhile? I'd really enjoy knowing more about what happened to Toby's mother or who the people were chasing after him and his family or how he obtained his gift in the first place! My personal opinion, the writers have really ignored what could be one of the best aspects of this show and I have no idea why.

The show was cancelled, check the Wikipedia page for it. I wish the show had finished the original plot before ending it. After season 1, the whole show had little character development for the most part and consisted of episodes ignoring the main plot that was laid out in the pilot/1st season.

It started as a cool show but the more the police angle is worked the more it bothers me on a moral basis. I mean the glaring lack of addressing the issue that he's basically a walking wiretap with no need for warrant or even a serious suspicion and that this is a serious breach of privacy laws (in their spirit, if not in letter since there's no legal precedent) does not seem to bother anyone. While I understand how cops may see him as best xmas, new year's and birthday present rolled in one and don't expect serious ethical introspection on this issue from them, somehow Toby never gets bothered by it at all. One time he asks himself in season 1 cause Marks accuses him of mind rape, Oz just says, course it doesn't bother me and that's the end of that introspection that doesn't really show up ever after. What...... Can you even imagine the public outcry if he made what he does for the police known? The moment they went in this direction full time, is when things went seriously pear shaped. Things always work out great in the show and bad guys are caught, but can you imagine how badly abused this gift would be in reality and how much damage you could and would be pressured to do for purely political reasons? After all, not like you could really complain to anyone about it if it's a secret, right? Ugh...gotta love the complete disconnect from reality in this show.

Season 1 is great. Season 2, not at all. This show is more about that blond woman than about the listener itself. It has no connection to the first season and no interest. What the hell happened?

I sorta like it, it's a fun series, with an interesting take on telepathy. Definitely worth a watch, the first season was much more entertaining, and had the best overall cast of characters, imo. Overall I'd give the series a 6.5/10 or 7/10.

I wonder - Everyone keep saying they like the 1st season and all they did and the characters - yet it was cancelled after 13 episodes. Then it's picked up again and the majority of watchers dislike the 2nd season and wonders why they totally changed the plot and characters and don't follow up on anything from season 1. - and here's the thing - THIS is renewed. Go figure - I'm lost. I want the 1st season back!

I think the first season was much better all that mystery all those unanswerd question just made it really good it's hard to top the first season well let's see how they try

I'm not liking the direction they are taking the second season of this show. The plot line seems very weak after only two shows in season two. Taking the mystery aspect out of the theme is essentially driving this show into the category of 'cop show with a twist'. And there are enough bloody cop shows on every US channel now. Canada needs to take a step back and rethink this one. I like a show that works outside the box.

good show! in the first season, the detective's character annoys me a little, but Toby makes up for it... gotta dig the good samaritan routine, need a few THOUSAND people like him in real life, lol. no idea where the second season is heading... but I'm sorta starting to lose interest, sad to say :(

They never did answer the question about Toby's brother hate they way they ended this show. So sick of shows ending and leaving so many unanswered questions.

Would really like to see them expand on his past more, would be much more interesting that way.

I didn't know this show was still on and I loved it when it first aired. Don't know why Warner Channel stopped airing it. :/ Maybe low ratings in my country... same thing happened with gossip girl.

Never got into this the first time I tried to watch it. Then I jumped straight to season 3, and all of the sudden it's one of my favorite shows. It's a bit like mentalist, but with actual mind reading, more team spirit, and a more sympathetic lead. In my opinion anyway. If you like Early Edition, Castle, and profiler shows like Criminal Minds, check this out.
