    Sounds interesting, but it doesn’t seem to fit with their demo.

  2. mayiread says:

    Sounds like Tru Calling.

  3. K says:

    Sounds very different! I’ve been very impressed with the tone of PLL. I nominate Sophie Lowe (from OUAT:Wonderland) for the lead.

  4. EJ386 says:

    Sounds like the pilot from Torchwood…

  5. Aleana says:

    Sound interesting nominate Mackenzie Roman as lead or the actress who played the lead on The Lying Game can’t think of her name right now

    “Pulling memories from the deceased in order to solve murders and other mysteries.”
    This reminds of Fringe. I miss that show!

  7. Waldo Butters says:

    My first thought on hearing that series description was ‘Fringe’ meets ‘Torchwood’ with a dash of ‘Pushing Daisies’ thrown in the mix.

    Might have promise but of course it’s all about tone, substance, and execution.

    … does this mean one of the not-yet-renewed shows is definitely getting the axe?

    OH NO. There are more than enough supernatural-themed shows now.

    I liked the preview i saw during the pre previews before the Avengers Ultron movie, but im finding very little about it on line. it also said 6/2/15 at 9pm was the starting point for the series, you’d think they’d hype it more then the have.
