The heartfelt reality series features Thomas John looking for opportunities to connect folks with dead friends and relatives. Often referred to as the "Seatbelt Psychic," thanks to using ride share as a way of meeting people to read, John travels to cities like Boston, New Orleans, Chicago, and Los Angeles to seek people willing to participate. While most appear open to his efforts, some even going so far as to sharing more details about their loved ones, others are not as appreciative. This creates some awkward moments, some of which are borderline insulting. It also makes you wonder if John's efforts are intended to convince people that what he does is real. Nonetheless, if you like this sort of thing, The Thomas John Experience can be entertainingly dramatic and emotional.
