The Others : review


13 50 minute episodes

SF elements

psychic powers


(I waited for a while before reviewing this, in the hope that C5 might deign to screen the remaining episodes. No luck. As with First Wave , it seems that C5 are better at buying series and hyping them in their adverts, than at airing them.)

This is a fairly routine but competently done series about a group of misfits with special powers -- precognition, channeling, sensitivity, that sort of thing -- who get a new member, Marian, who is not at all sure she wants her "gift". Some of the episodes reminded me of The Twilight Zone .

Rating: 4

[ unmissable | great stuff | worth watching | mind candy | waste of time | unfinishable ]
