TV: Day Break


Recommended Posts

So, as some of you may have noticed, filling the beloved Lost's timeslot is this new show called Day Break. IMDB summarizes the plot well: "Today Detective Brett Hopper will be accused of shooting state attorney Alberto Garza. He will offer his rock solid alibi. He will realize he's been framed. And he will run. Then he will wake up and start the day over again."


Anyway, did anyone here watch it? Like it or no?


I've always liked the reliving-a-day idea, like with Groundhog Day. But this is a slightly different approach, since it is a violent day to relive, and the injuries he gets cross over to the next day... er, same day, but in the morning again. So he isn't invulnerable like Bill Murray. Diggs does a pretty good job I think, and the cinematography is pretty too.


Last time, Lost did reruns and had a new episode every month or so. This time they are taking a break and then going to return next year with straight weeks of new stuff. I like this new show, so I don't mind the wait.

Isn't this essentially Tru Calling?

He doesn't watch shows that were created before he was born.

Lou Gutman, P.I.- It's like I'm not even trying anymore!

One billion b-balls dribbling simultaneously throughout the galaxy. One trillion b-balls being slam dunked through a hoop throughout the galaxy. I can feel every single b-ball that has ever existed at my fingertips. I can feel their collective knowledge channeling through my viens. Every jumpshot, every rebound and three-pointer, every layup, dunk, and free throw. I am there.

The previews for the show are so anti-climactic. It has all these action shots and the music gets really intense, then the music stops, flash to the wife waking up in bed, and Taye Diggs is staring at her on a chair next to the bed, and he goes, "I love you." in the worst way you could possibly say I love you.


Daybreak schmaybreak; where's mah Lost.



Seriously, only like, three people can touch my body
