Osiris The Series is a dynamic 10-episode sci-fi/action web series about a man the grim reaper refuses to claim.
His name is Osiris, and he wears immortality well.
Over 300 years old and forever young, Osiris long ago discovered he can't die. No matter the injury, after exactly 37 minutes he is resurrected.
However, the source of his regenerative powers are a mystery, even to him.
While spending multiple lifetimes seeking the source of his immortality, he has accumulated a wealth of knowledge, as well as insight, into the human condition.
The result is a man who revels in hedonism. In fact, when we first meet Osiris, he has seduced a beautiful woman with the promise of sexual techniques he assures "can make her come in 14 seconds."
Soon thereafter, he is sought out and engaged in spectacular fashion by an acquaintance who happens to be an F.B.I. agent.
Osiris is called upon to use his vast intellect and unusual gifts to assist the F.B.I. in a mass murder investigation involving a powerful criminal overlord. Complicating matters is an obsessed, sinister scientist who is relentlessly pursuing him in order gain the secret to eternal life.
Created and written by Donnie Leapheart for Pyramid Pictures, Osiris The Series is thoroughly entertaining and engrossing.
Mr. Leapheart's script is smart, complete with razor-sharp dialogue. For example, during one fateful encounter with a person from his past, Osiris observes "the dates may change but people don't."
Along with the terrific script, the series also has a talented cast. The star, Brad James, gives a stellar performance. He imbues Osiris with cockiness, intelligence, and swagger, while still keeping the character from becoming unsympathetic.
It's quite a tightrope to walk, but Mr. James does so skillfully. His layered performance reveals under Osiris' considerable bravado is a man weary of watching those he loves slip away.
Mr. Leapheart wisely gives Osiris a vital anchor to his humanity in the form of his great, great granddaugther Paula Castleberry (Nicky Buggs) - a capable, no nonsense police detective. She serves to ground Osiris with her honesty and tough love.
Many kudos must also be given to the production team for the slick look and sound of the series. The production quality is comparable to any show on broadcast television.
