Awake: the mental mystery deepens

Posted on April 3, 2012 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

One of the things I've been liking about NBC's Awake, in which Jason Isaacs lives in two realities – one in which his wife is dead, the other, which he enters when he goes to sleep (and vice versa), in which his son is dead – is that it hasn't been going for a sci-fi or supernatural explanation so far. In fact, it's been coming at this from the point of view that this probably is a mental problem, the only issue being that we don't know which reality is correct and which is the dream – and more to the point, do we really want to?

Looks like it's going to be pushing that line of investigation even further on Thursday…

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything.

We want to keep it civil here.
