Anyone else watch this Wednesday night? For those that haven't heard of it, the basic gist of the story is that this detective guy had a car wreck and his mind has created two realities: one where his wife survived the wreck and another where his son survived. The show is about him trying to cope / figure out which reality is real and also him solving cases in both realities. It's really well done in terms of how they split between the different time lines so far and how they merge with each other. I'd say anyone who like psychological mysteries (something along the lines of Inception or Shutter Island) should give it a whirl. I'm very pleased with the first episode, so I'm pleasantly optimistic that they won't go full retard near the end.

I watched it tonight, and seeing Jason Isaacs speaking with an American accent throws me off. It's a good show so far though, and I like how the color tones are different within the two "realities." The colors are a bit warmer in the world where his wife survived and Fez is his partner. More orange hue to everything. The other world where his son survived has a bluer tint to everything. It's an interesting and pretty easy way to keep track of which reality he's in at any given time.

I'm going to give this show a chance and try to watch the rest of this season.

I just watched the first episode, I'm definitely interested in seeing how the rest of the series goes.

Anyone watch the second episode yet? It was all nice and neat until that ending. Not sure where they're going to take this now.

never even got around to watching episode 2. but i hear it's getting cancelled. I do still plan on watching it regardless. I liked the concept of the show. But if it gets cancelled I won't really be in any rush to catch up.
