PAST LIFE premiers tonight at 9pm on FOX. Trying to decide whether or not the show gets a precious spot on your Tuesday night schedule? Here’s what you need to know…


From Fox: Have you ever experienced déjà vu or met someone you thought seemed familiar? Do you believe in karma, fate or love at first sight? From writer David Hudgins (“Friday Night Lights”), and inspired by the book “The Reincarnationist” by M.J. Rose, comes PAST LIFE, a new drama series about an unlikely pair of past-life detectives who investigate whether what is happening to you today is the result of who you were before.

DR. KATE MCGINN (Kelli Giddish, “All My Children”) is not your typical psychologist. Confident, outspoken and highly educated, she works at The Talmadge Center for Behavioral Health in New York City, a world-renowned institute dedicated to the study of the science of the soul. After experiencing a past-life regression in her 20s, Kate became a believer in reincarnation. Using regression therapy and her natural gift for reading people, Kate helps solve the mysteries of her troubled clients who suffer from present-day problems caused by past-life traumas. She believes there are levels of consciousness and explanations for human behavior that science can’t begin to explain. Accustomed to skeptics, but not bothered by them, Kate is an unapologetic believer and a force of nature who marches to the beat of her own drummer.

Her partner, PRICE WHATLEY (Nicholas Bishop, “Home and Away”), is a different story. A former NYPD homicide detective, pragmatic and cynical, Price is a damaged soul who constantly battles grief and guilt over the accidental death of his wife. Price feels that Kate, though not certifiable, certainly operates on the fringes of science. It’s a volatile relationship, but with Price’s solid detective skills, and Kate’s penchant for out-of-the-box thinking, together they make a formidable, if somewhat dysfunctional, team.

A fast-paced emotional thrill ride, each episode finds Price and Kate working with their colleagues to unravel a new mystery involving the past-lives of their clients. DR. MALACHI TALMADGE (Richard Schiff, “The West Wing”) is Kate’s mentor and the center’s namesake, an avuncular but gruff elder statesman who is a legend in the field of cognitive research. DR. RISHI KARNA (Ravi Patel, “Scrubs”) is the rookie of the group, a baby-faced therapist from Calcutta who loves bad American TV, Cuban jazz and driving everyone crazy.

    I’ve had an out-of-body experience so I know more about this subject than 99% of the general population. I’ve studied the subject for over 20 years. This is for real. Past lives are real. Life after death is real. Many independent studies have been done. Different religions such as Buddhism, Spiritualism, Scientology and Hinduism among many others all are reincarnation based. Science is sadly lagging behind these religions and that has to change. There has to be scientific concensus on this issue. Scientists at the University of Arizona have done much work on this subject. Listen to them!

    I think I’ll pass on this one. Not really in my wheelhouse and I’m usually catching up on the rest of Monday’s TV on Tuesday nights anyway.

    I definitely will be watching this one. I just watched the First Look Trailer and cried! It reminds me of Ghost Whisperer in some ways, which is a show I love. Nothing like a good sob fest! 🙂

    I heard opening dialog. “:Angry and white, must be a republican.” Shows ignorance to me, it’s the liberal elites, or shall I say the stateists who really generate “hate speech” so they don’t have to respond to reality. When people are tired of a welfare state, an ready to be fully responsable for all of there lives, and not trade temporarary gaines for their own freedoms and liberties, then and only then will “We the people” truely prosper.

    Just wanted to say that I’ve heard of rumors of the show canceling and I HATE to hear that. I also think it’s a big mistake! I LOVE this show.

    I really don’t watch tv much, but I saw a preview for the show and was hooked. The first episode was excellent, it gave me chills!!! I thought, there is no way the next show could be that good, 3 shows later I could not wait for the next, but it never can on. There is no way they can cancel this show I love it, and my friends at work agree!!!
