Got caught up on Awake last night. LOVE it. I liked the other show from it's creator, Lone Star...which got a whopping 1 episode run on Fox. This is a lot like that. A man, split between two worlds. I like the hints of a superplot and the way they transition from one dream to the other while taking clues back and forth. It's a real smart show and it has some truly touching moments. Good acting for the most part, always liked BD Wong/Isaacs and having a cast member of Terriers ain't ever gonna hurt in my eyes. His partners in both halves are kind of weak link-y, but I can deal. I hope that NBC takes a chance on this and lets it try to find an audience because there is a real good story here.
I liked them until I realized that the younger one was Wilmer Valderrama.
I thought that casting the leader of the Aliens from the Event in a VERY similar role was a bit of a mistake too. She's a good actress, and good for the part...but it's too close/soon and brings up bad memories.
