 Fate-Based Initiative - By Dana Stevens - Slate Magazine
Where Tru's calling is to prevent, by hook or crook, what seem like inevitable deaths, Jack's mission is the opposite: He travels back in time to ensure that those fated to meet their maker do so unimpeded.
Tru Calling's moral universe lacks Buffy's goth-religious underpinnings; Jack and Tru are presented not as supernatural agents of good and evil, but as mortal human beings wearily saddled with differing ethical missions.
Ironically enough, Tru Calling itself is currently on artificial life support; the series was canceled in 2004 after its first season, and the six second-season episodes being screened over the next month are serving as temporary placeholders for the spot just vacated by Point Pleasant, another supernatural-themed teen drama.

Tru also does not appear fazed by the girls' relationship, once she gets over her initial surprise, and her error at automatically assuming the victims were heterosexual is obvious to both Tru and the viewer.

 Tru Calling   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The premise of Tru Calling makes it alluring, and I really think there are so many things that can be done with the idea, that it won't get boring or jump for awhile.
Tru Calling has never jumped the shark imho and judging by the way it's going now, it would take something pretty major (like, all the cast shaving their heads and doing the mambo at the morgue, major) to make it do so.
No longer was the show focusing on Tru dealing with all the complexities of trying to alter the future and facing all the ensuing moral dilemmas, which is what made the show so interesting.

 Tru Calling: The Complete First Season DVD - RopeofSilicon.com
"Tru Calling" is the story of Tru Davies, pun intended, she is a bit of an odd bird as her only power is not that of seduction, but she has the ability to change the future by reliving the past.
Word has it that there were only six episodes shot for the second season of "Tru Calling" and fans are going to have to fight just to see those, and it really sounds like they will be getting something like a limited showing on the FX channel and then shot out on DVD.
"Tru Calling" is entertaining enough to enjoy it once through, but without the final payoff this DVD set may be just as dead as the series itself, only time will tell.

 Tru Calling: The Complete First Season
Tru Calling is one of several recent teen-oriented dramas with a sci-fi/paranormal spin, following in the footsteps of shows like Smallville, Roswell and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (in fact, Eliza Dushku turned down an offer to play Faith in a proposed Buffy spin-off in order to star in Tru Calling!).
Structurally, Tru Calling is reminiscent of other, gimmicky shows (like The Dead Zone, Quantum Leap and Sliders) in which the protagonist has a special ability that enables him or her to pop into all sorts of one-time situations.
Tru eventually confides in her boss Davis (played with quirky sensitivity by the bearded Zach Galifianakis), and mid-season she discovers another person with her same ability - Jack Harper (played by Jason Priestley).

 Tru Calling | PopMatters Television Review
That is, just when Tru thinks she has avoided that certain disaster she's spent the previous 40-something minutes trying to avoid, she recognizes that another possibility has eluded her, and indeed, disaster still looms.
In fact, according to the pilot episode, Tru has a longstanding affinity for dead people, beginning with her mother murdered in front of her when the girl was only 12 (this leads to the refrain that mom "died before her time" -- remember it).
He conjectures, Tru grabs at most likely causes and effects, finds the girl and tries to manage her movements with regard to a married boyfriend (Callum Keith Rennie) and a stalker ex (John Haymes Newton).
