Still, similar attributes didn’t save Fox’s “Dark Angel,” and that show wasn’t tossed into the Thursday-night abyss — the kind of high-mortality timeslot that could put “Tru” in need of its protagonist’s services.
Having witnessed her mother’s murder as a child, a decade later Tru is a troubled young woman, in the midst of an affair with her college professor and somewhat estranged from her siblings.
If you didn't catch the first season, there's still time to get hooked.
Although the former Vampire Slayer from Buffy days is no longer fighting blood sucking vamps, she is still wrestling with the lives of dead people.
Tru's day also rewinds, though, and she discovers how Jack is able to be in the right place at the right time.
