Awake: the mental mystery deepens

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…

    I agree 100%. I love the real science (psychology) that has been used so far to explain Britten's condition. I hope the writers keep it that way. I always thought the the LOST mysteries would be resolved scientifically, so I really hope the AWAKE questions do.

    I think if they have to bail out quickly with a cancellation, then it should turn out that Detective Britten was the one who died in the crash.� And somehow everything we've been seeing has been the dreams of his widow and son…..�
