Awake is an intelligent, thoughtful, provocative and well-acted show that by summer is likely to be just a memory.
Hard to understand why NBC would keep Awake sitting on its bench for so long, because the show is better than most of the series the network had in its starting lineup for the season.
It packs some punch. And Isaacs certainly doesn't sleepwalker through a decidedly distinctive role.
It is exploring new turf in terms of a relationship drama with a bold narrative premise, and vaguely spiritual aspirations.
When I got the screener that contained the first four episodes, I gobbled them all up in almost one sitting.
