The Fox network aired four one-hour episodes of the series before cancelling it, though thirteen episodes had been completed. [[TheTimReaper Tim Minear]], one of Creator/JossWhedon's co-creators on ''Series/{{Angel}}'', wrote and executively produced, ensuring snappy post-modern dialogue and convoluted plots.

* BuffySpeak: With TimMinear on board, perhaps not surprising.

Added DiffLines:

* WhiteAngloSaxonProtestant: The family demonstrates traditional WASP culture, with well-to-do family, highly educated but somewhat dysfunctional and cold at times.

Jaye Tyler is a young woman with a useless Ivy League degree and no desire to pursue a career, working as a retail clerk in a UsefulNotes/NiagaraFalls souvenir shop. MagicRealism asserts itself when inanimate objects--everything from statues, bookends and plush dolls to cartoon business logos, but always animals in some form--begin to talk to her. Their cryptic clues lead Jaye to bettering the lives of people around her (usually in cleverly-conceived, indirect ways) while simultaneously causing her to seriously doubt her sanity. Worse, if she attempts to ignore their commands, they badger and pester her until she relents.

* CaliforniaDoubling: NiagaraFalls, ''Ontario'' (and environs) doubles for NiagaraFalls, ''New York'' (ditto). Of course, anyone who's actually been there will realize that the view directly across includes the American Falls, which would be on the left if one was actually on the American side.

* StrongFamilyResemblance: Caroline Dhavernas and Lee Pace look like they really could be brother and sister. Fittingly, Jaye and Aaron have always been the close siblings, while blonde Sharon is the odd one out.



* WoobieOfTheWeek: The show premise, atleast for the first two-thirds of the season. Then it became less focused on her accidentally doing good deeds and more on Heidi and Eric and beginning go into detail about just what exactly is causing her "powers".

Added DiffLines:

** Plans for the second season had the girlfriend continuing to see both Sharon and her husband, which would eventually result in Sharon becoming pregnant by her girlfriend's husband after she sleeps with them in succession, and possibly saving their marriage by giving them the baby they were never able to conceive on their own.

The show's creator, Creator/BryanFuller, also created ''DeadLikeMe'', which may explain some of the similarities between the two shows; for example, the slacker female protagonist with a traditionally male name stuck in a dead-end job. (Fuller went on to create ''PushingDaisies'', starring Lee "Aaron Tyler" Pace alongside a female with a traditionally male name.) A series arc of sorts was planned; the second season was to focus on Jaye's sessions with her therapist, and the third was to have had Jaye committed to an institution. The show also shares characteristics with ''Series/JoanOfArcadia'', which premiered a few months earlier, as it is (very loosely) based upon the Joan of Arc legend.

* ViewersAreMorons: Fox absolutely ''hated'' the episode "Crime Dog" because of its HowWeGotHere narration, thinking that fans wouldn't be able to understand what was going on.
