First 7 Minutes of NBC’s New Drama, 'Awake'

The Collider:
My most-anticipated new show of the 2011-2012 television season is Awake. Jason Isaacs stars as a cop who’s in a car accident with his family, and now he’s living in two realities: one where his son (Dylan Minnette) survived and one where his wife (Laura Allen) survived. The question is which one is the dream and which one is reality? It’s a terrific premise that could easily run out of steam in a short amount of time, but it’s more original than almost any other new show on network TV. Hopefully, they find a way to build on the premise rather than use it as a hook and nothing more.

I am definitely going to give this a chance because it's so different and interesting. It's also one I'll have really pay attention of those that my husband calls a thinking show. He doesn't like to have to think too much when he watches something. He says you're suppose to just sit and enjoy not have to figure things out....not me...this type of stuff is what I like and I want to see this and see if it's going to be worth keeping up with.

I like shows that keep you curious, and let you think, but some shows go to far and never answer questions. I think Lost somewhat did it. First season, great, after that it was like "wtf is going on? I give up..".haha

I didn't give up on Lost but my husband did after the first 2 seasons. I stayed with it til the end...didn't really care for the way it ended though.

I think this show is going to be very interesting but keeping that intense curiousity is what they will have to work on week after week.
