THE SENTINEL: Richard Burgi

The Sentinel: Richard BurgiBorn and raised in Montclair, New Jersey, Richard Burgi is a talented and compelling actor with an extensive and varied filmography in television and film.

Burgi has been working steadily in the industry since the latter half of the 1980s, when he landed his first full-time role on NBC's Another World, playing Chad Rollo. Since then he has appeared on countless television shows, including 24, Point Pleasant, CSI, The District, Judging Amy, The Sentinel, Just Shoot Me and Seinfeld.

The Sentinel DVDThe Sentinel, a Canadian-produced television series that is broadcasted on UPN in the United States. The series star airing last 1996 to 1999, that was premiered on March 20, 1996 and ran for 65 episodes (three and a half seasons). The story focuses on Jim Ellison, a U.S. Army Ranger that spent 18 months in the Peruvian jungle after his unit are killed. During that time, he developed hyperactive senses that came five years later, when he was a detective in Cascade PD's Major Crimes Department. When he goes to the hospital to see a doctor, he finds instead Blair Sandburg, an anthropologist from Rainier University who tells him that he's a Sentinel. In ancient tribes, Sentinels protected the village.

For Jim, Cascade is his village. Blair has been studying Sentinel mythology for years, but he never found before a true Sentinel (a person with all five senses enhanced). Blair helps Jim control his senses and joins Jim as police observer. To the surprise of many people, this unlikely partnership works and together they fight against crime in the streets of Cascade. Jim's hyperactive senses mean he can see beyond what others see, even in the dark, and with more detail; hear sounds that are farther than normal range or too low for anybody else; sense what nobody else can with taste, touch and smell, in short becoming a walking forensic lab. But Jim's powers have a drawback: if he concentrates too strongly in one sense, he could "zone out", a kind of catatonic state. Part of Blair's job is preventing the zone outs. The only person who knows Jim's secret, apart from Blair, is his captain and friend, Simon Banks, and in the last half season, so does Megan Connor.
