Show Summary

Originally on: Space (60 min.)

While on a hunt for a woman with no identity, Detective Charlie Jade is shot into a strange parallel universe (Betaverse) when a facility that he is investigating explodes.

Charlie is from Alphaverse, a dystopian universe that is ruled by five mega corporations. Betaverse, the universe Charlie is initially sent to, corresponds to "our" reality. But there's a third universe, the Gammaverse, an apparent Utopia that has an abundance of natural resources that Vex-Cor (one of the Alphaverse mega-corps) would like to exploit.

Charlie Jade was filmed in Cape Town, South Africa and produced by CHUM Television and the South African Industrial Development Corporation.

  • Another great show has bitten the dust, heaven forbid we have something on TV that makes us think or that we could really actually enjoy watching for more then 5 minutes.moreless

    I love this show!! I've recorded every episode that I have been able to get, I didn't get to see the first few of them but I'm hoping I will get to some time because I will keep all of them. I watch it over and over. I really hope it gets picked up by someone because I'm so sick of the some of the junk that is on. This show makes you use your brain and we could all use that:)

    The networks seem to always take off the great shows and put on junk in their place, it's really sad. I'm a 64 yr. old Great G'ma and I like to watch shows with substance!!

  • Great show giving us a new spin on the sci-fi genera. The story of multiple dimensions I have never seen told in tv format. Charlie Jade did an excellent job in dealing with the concept.moreless

    Great show giving us a new spin on the sci-fi genera. The story of multiple dimensions I have never seen told in tv format. Charlie Jade did an excellent job in dealing with the concept. Some say the show was confusing but I believe if you paid attention close enough all was clear. The characters were very interesting and compelling. In some cases the show even made the most retched of them good in one universe and depraved in another and this was an excellent way to drive home the multiple dimension plot. Good show that should've been treated better by the Sci-Fi channel and reserved for those who don't mind a little thought in their tv programming.moreless
  • We really need a season 2. Charlie Jade shouldn't be over yet.

    I was watching Scifi in the beginning of June and I was watching Charlie Jade for the first time. I really did love the special effects and the suspence. I did some research at google and I read that this show was made in UK, England back in 2005. They announced that due to the low ratings of the show the series went discontinued. Then I found out at the forums section at scifi.com/charliejade that one of the fans spoke to the creator of the show Chris Roland. Chris said that he is trying to run the series in America and if it becomes a success, then there's a chance for a second season. I just hope this show will last at least 5 years or more and may become a success just like other new Scifi shows. If it happens it seems like Charlie Jade may rise up again!moreless
  • PI Charlie Jade seems to be seeing things. A young girl comes to him asking for help getting home he doesn't believe her story, she ends up dead. Charlie looks for her killer and ends up in another universe.moreless

    I did not really follow this show very well. It was over half way thru before I understood what the meaning of the alphaverse, betaverse and gammaverse on the screen was meant to convey. I still have no idea what was going on at the big corporation, but I will definetly continue watching this show but must pay closer attention. I enjoyed the spart with the special doctor that Charlie went to see and I also enjoyed the girlfriend, hope we see more of both of them. I advise recording the show so you can rewatch it and catch all the stuff you miss.moreless
  • Great new concept if you pay attention from the beginning!

    All in all I liked the pilot episode of Charlie Jade. It is not the type of show you can just watch from the middle of the episode. One has to watch it from the beginning and PAY attention!! There is ALOT of plot laying and concept description from the very first episode. I loved the whole idea of an alternate universe where our world seriously screws up other reality's, including our own because of evil corporate people. Let's hope the network does not cancell it before it can build up a head of steam. TOO many networks dont give enough new shows enough time to get a following going. Also airing it on a Friday night in the summertime is also not the best way to get a show to keep going. But here's hoping they will keep it going! I really liked it. It was worth my time! Great show! Worth watching!moreless
