  • The Chronicle - Stranger Than Truth

    Once upon a time, there was a quirky television show about a tabloid paper specializing in paranormal stories. The thing that made this paper different was the stories were actually true! So the stories about the two-headed baby with the tail, it's true. And the woman that gave birth to the alien baby? True again.

    The concept of that television show was so unique, the placement of it on Sci-Fi was bsolutely perfect, since they were airing a number of shows that were a bit off the beaten path (Farscape, Lexx, Invisible Man).

    And then came the great show cut on Sci-Fi, when they began to reduce the amount of original programming that they had on their channel. The Chronicle was one of the first that disappeared with a quickness.

    It may have been a matter of viewership, though none of the Sci-Fi shows were ratings dynamos. It may have been a matter of budget. Whatever it was, I found it to be such a shame that the show never had the chance to gain its stride and gain an audience.

    The main character, Tucker, was completely unprepared for taking on the job as a reporter for The Chronicle, but in watching his interactions with Wes, Grace and Donald, he seemed to finally a place where he could hone his jounalistic chops.

    The cases they were called on were fun to watch. The cheesiness (which you know it had to have to be on Sci-Fi) made the show endearing and it was a trail shame that it didn't air long enough for more people to realize that.
