Show Summary

Toby Logan is a paramedic who can read people's thoughts. Toby did not manage to know his parents and grew in foster homes. Until now Toby has kept his ability secret and the only one he has shared it with is his old counselor and confidant, Dr. Ray. While he crosses the city of Toronto in his ambulance with his partner Oz, Toby tries to help persons in crisis and on the way treat his own wounds. With the help of Detective Marks and his ex-girlfriend Olivia, an E.R doctor, Toby realizes that his gift can serve to help other people. The show, which contains humorous and tragic elements, follows Toby as he uses his power to solve crimes. The Listener is produced by Program Partners in association with Shaftesbury Films.

  • Great show, still on?

    8.0
    Since it's inception, I became a fan. (Season 1 sucked) After that, it was natural to participate in a larger agency.

    I'm still confused though, if the show is returning, especially given the last episode where Toby is conflicted with his position within the Bureau and his recent "Officer involved" killing.

    Really returning??
  • I listened, but couldn't hear

    1.0
    I was looking foreword to the premier of The Listener, but was very disappointed because the music and sound effects were so loud I couldn't hear the dialogue. Thumbs down on The Listener.
  • Great show but needs some direction!

    8.0
    I truly enjoy this series!! I'm not sure about season 3 as yet as i've not seen it but I think Lauren Lee Smith is doing a fine job! However, I must agree with what the others have commented, that it would be great to have a follow up on Toby's missing mother and also with the death of Dr Olivia Fawcet, who is going to follow up on TOby's impending head problem? Are you going to leave it at that. The show does seem to be gravitating towards a Cop and Who Done It kind of theme but I'm pretty fine with it however it seems like Toby's no longer the lead which wasn't the original intention I believe. Having said that, I do still look forward to the show. Hope season 3 & 4 won't disappoint!moreless
  • Blonde has the worst wig ever

    7.5
    The blonde chick has the worst wig ever in season 4. The wig is so bad is is actually distracting. She finally goes with what I think is her own hair and a short haircut halfway through the season. I miss all the interesting ideas they started with, Toby's missing mom, his therapist, his lost brother, him being a paramedic, and also they had more mind reading, they hardly have any since season 2.. Now it is just another cop show. Oz and him are not even paramedics now. I still like the show though. It is one of those shows I put on when I am falling asleep.moreless
  • New character is awful, get her OFF NOW

    3.5
    The new female head of the unit is such a terrible actress I almost cannot watch the show anymore and I would normally rate this show as a 9. She adds nothing to story and she is a tremendously horrific actress. Please remove her from the show so that it can be watchable again.



    And, Michelle's original hair color was much more flattering. It's now very distracting to watch her sometimes. I so wish actresses would let go of the need to be so blond. She is an ok actress but somehow (I know this is trivial, sorry) her hair how brings out some of her disjointed facial expressions more than it used to.



    Let's please keep this show alive but get back to original story lines, get rid of the new female head of the unit and get Michelle's hair color back to flattering vs distracting!!! Quick, hurry, listen, or I fear this show isn't going to make it!!!moreless
  • THE PHILANTHROPIST CASHES IN IN JUNE, BUT FOUR-NIGHTS A WEEK OF I'M A CELEBRITY… GET ME OUT OF HERE IS OVERKILL.

    NBC's summer has sizzle, but more fizzle

    Remember last year's NBC summer lineup? Centered around the Olympics, NBC went all red-white-and-blue with "NBC's All-American Summer," which included American Gladiators and Nashville Star. The network pushed its lineup hard, presumably while wearing an Uncle Sam mask and…
