  • When I saw "Pilot Episode" I thought I'd give it a chance, it wasnt until I actually liked the show that I saw it aired in 2002

    My girlfriend and I watched this show and loved it. We thought we found a new show for wednesday. When we saw that it was the pilot episode we thought "Wow, Sci-fi really scored with this one". What we didnt see was that it originally aired in 2002. I decided to do some research, and out that NBC had pulled the plug on this show before it even had a chance to become a big hit. It's really too bad they ended it. I also believe that if this show aired five year later than it had it wouldve really taken off.moreless
  • Strange

    What I want to know is why the Sci-Fi channel, is advertising the Series Premier of Haunted, as if it is a new show, when it was made in 2004. Weve seen numerous ads for it.

  • Purely a victim of bad timing.

    While being a rather unoriginal story about visitations from beyond, Haunted still proved to be a well-produced series about a detective that dances on the edge of good and bad, and of life and death. When his son is abducted, the life of police detective Frank Taylor falls into a downward spiral, eventually leading to his divorce. After quitting the force to continue the pursuit of his lost son, the dark series begins with Frank as a PI, where one of his cases ends with him flatlined in the ER. Brought back from the brink of death, he not only returns with the ability to see the spirits of the deceased, but is haunted by the man who nearly killed him! Unwillingly, Frank's new calling becomes the pursuit of justice for those whose killer has alluded the law.

    Despite its compelling stories, solid production, and the talented lady-killer lead, Matthew Fox, the series unfortunately aired on the struggling young UPN network with a fall premier hot on the heels of the X-Files finale and the public wasn't willing to welcome another supernatural drama so soon. Overall, my only real gripe about the show is that half of the paranormal events would always take place in Frank's cramped old urban apartment. That could easily have been fixed though, if only the show had been given a chance.moreless
  • A very good show. How come I never heard of it?

    I was flipping threw the channels last Monday, when this show was just getting ready to start that caught my eye. I also recognized the actor playing the lead character. So I sat and watched. It was the pilot episode of "Haunted". It was aired on HDNet at 8:00 p.m. I was very pleased after watching it. The story was great and very interesting. It was one of the few shows I watched that you only leave your seat during commercials. I thought, "Wow, that was a great show." But knowing what the guy that played the main character does now, I knew it had to be an older show. After the show I was pleased to find out that it was on Monday night again this past Monday. I watched. Another great episode. A great show. But after this episode they advertised Smallville as taking the time slot starting next Monday. I was bummed. I only get to see two episodes of this show. So I did some homework. Originally aired on UPN in 2002, only thirteen episodes made. What a shame. It was an excellent show. You think that the CW can ressurrect this show. I wish I would have known when it was originally on. I wouldn't have missed an episode. It sounds like a lot of people didn't know when it was on, or it would have done better in the ratings. Bad advertising, but then again it was UPN.moreless
  • Not a good, not a bad choise...

    Haunted was one of the most intense television series ever produced. The script was well written and the cinematography complemented the dark, mysterious story lines. Matthew Fox brought intensity and multi-dimensionality to his character. Although already established from the series, Party of Five, this role convinced me that Matthew Fox was (and still is) one of the best young actors on the scene today. He is also proving his talent on the hit show Lost. Its too bad haunted didn't last longer - the sad thing is that there is a new show called the Ghost Whisperer with Jennifer Love Hewitt that is a watered down, rip-off of Haunted. Haunted was the real deal and was much better done.moreless
