Trivia

Extrasensory perception (ESP) is a term to denote psychic abilities such as intuition, telepathy, psychometry, clairaudience, and clairvoyance, and their trans-temporal operation as precognition or retrocognition. The scientific community rejects ESP due to the absence of an evidence base, the lack of a theory which would explain ESP and the lack of positive experimental results; it considers ESP to be pseudoscience.

cast list
17 December 2006 | by ciecieSee all my reviews

I think that Sally Field, John Davidson and Jack Sheldon should be the first three names listed. They were the stars of the show. I think that having the three stars names at the bottom of the cast list is an insult to the three of them,. I think that IMDb.com should correct this error immediately. I also fondly recall watching this delightful show when I was growing up. There was an episode at Christmas time that was based on O. Henry's Gift of The Magi. I'm hoping that this show is put out on DVD or shown on TVLand. This is the kind of show that would fit into TVLand's line-up. I think that I will e-mail them and ask them about putting this show in their line-up.
