it's supposed to be about interdimensional travel. and a private investigator or a cop gets trapped in a dimensional shift and figures out that international corporations are running out of resources to exploit, so they're trying to rip off other parallel universes.

Charlie Jade (Jeffrey Pierce, The West Wing, JAG, Boston Public) is a rogue private detective in a world dominated by greedy multinational corporations. When Charlie sees the corpse of a beautiful young woman he realizes she embodies the impossible: she has no identity, something inconceivable in Charlie's world.
While tracking her suspected killer, the trail leads Charlie to a secret desert facility. A massive explosion propels him into a parallel universe, our own chaotic twenty-first century world where he is both baffled by its differences and seduced by its similarities. Charlie is soon drawn into a conflict that not only involves his home universe and the one he now inhabits but also includes another, a pristine pacifist universe with unsuspected terror at its heart.
Three worlds... One hope
Created by Robert Wertheimer (Due South, RoboCop: Prime Directives) and Chris Roland (Stander, Man to Man, The Bone Snatcher), the series is written by Guy Mullally (The Lost World, Little Men), David Cole (Cold Squad, Due South) and Stephen Zoller (Super Rupert, Anne of Green Gables). Executive Producers are Robert Wertheimer, Chris Roland, Izidore Codron (The Bone Snatcher, Stander), Robin Spry (Big Wolf on Campus, The Lost World), and Jacques Pettigrew (Galidor)
Charlie Jade is filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.

I have to say that O1 Boxer is one of the most original characters i have seen in a long time. Apparently he is a child in Alpha, an adolescent in Beta and an adult in Gamma. He really acts differently in each universe. The only thing i find weird is that we got to know more about him than Charlie in the first five episodes that have aired.

i think charlie and boxer are shadows of each other.
this show is kind of more fantasy than sci fi... especially after the first ten episodes. but i like it. it's ambitious. and it's trying to be relevant...

I really love that they emphasized the importance of a natural resource as simple and yet as vital as water.

My only criticism is that the show has too much ambition. Certain characters and storylines have occasionally been given short shrift, which has been a little frustrating.
Here's hoping re-runs or DVDs are in the works, because Charlie Jade really deserves to be seen.

It seems to have a lot going for it. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the episodes when Space inevitable reruns them.
Edited to add: Apparently CHUM's A-Channel stations will be showing Charlie Jade Season 1 this fall. (CHUM owns Space as well.)

It started slowly but those who persevered were rewarded with one of the most original and compelling science fiction show ever. The choice of South Africa for the shooting made it visually unique. It's a lot less familiar to us than British Columbia which we have seen way too often. They did wonders with a limited budget.
I have two suggestions for those who haven't seen it:
1. Bug the hell out of Scifi channel to get it. It deserves to be seen in the United States.
2. Try to watch all the episodes and see them in order. You can't judge the show after only seeing one or two episodes.

So, what? Charlie and 01 make peace, and save the multiverse. Is that all? Was there more to get?

for everyone else, i have to say it is a really enjoyable show. the locations are great. I think it probably took about the 8th or 9th show for things to really start kicking into high gear (or become understandable), but it was fantastic after that. both charlie and 01 play such great characers.... I do hope they are able to swing a second season...

Charlie was just plunked down in a new world. So what? He didn't care, just bummed around, and la di dah. His partner didn't even have any cases; how did that detective agency survive?
There were some striking visuals and great concepts, but you need more.

Why the hell hasn't the Sci Fi Channel picked this up?
