A short lived series comprising of only 13 episodes no longer shown anywhere! Some solid performances by veteran Canadian actor Nick Mancuso right from the start as lead actor playing a hit-man who's blown away by a.22 calibre but given a second chance to live. The former hitter is now a saver of lost souls on earth and in each episode he's given an assignment from a messenger from beyond and is expected to do whatever is necessary to complete the job. He's helped along by his mob partner and friend Billy who has the job of researcher, clean up man, and bodyguard. Series criticized by media based on its kooky premise but some more current programs with similar story lines where the main character has a near death experience include Brimstone, and more recently The Dead Zone with Anthony Michael Hall, though Steven Matrix doesn't have any real special power other than he's able to go back and forth between two worlds, usually not by choice. Small supporting cast that includes popular Matrix film star Carrie Anne Moss as Matrix's business partner in a fitness club. And now that both Matrix film sequels are coming out later this year, it'd be nice to see this TV series reair.
