What I'm Watching at the Moment - Day Break

Posted by Sooty

Okay, I watch a lot of TV and films so I thought I might as well write about it.

First off is Day Break.

Starring Taye Diggs (That dude from the film Equilibrium who has his face cut and is the next to last person to kick it) the premise is pretty much a murder mystery/conspiracy that takes place in one day. But this isn't 24. This is so far a little more fantastical. This is groundhog day, without the humour but with suspense. Taye lives the same day over and over (apparently) and is so far using this time to either change the course of the day (to protect his girlfriend and family) and find out who's behind the murder he's being accused of.

Its got a pretty cool supporting cast too, ranging from Skinner from X-Files, Jane from Firefly and The cyborg lover from the latest Terminator film. I'm only 2 episodes in, but its quite enjoyable so far. With characters that of varying dimensions, its the concept that drives so far. The possibilities are many for this. However the characters will need more to keep me compelled to watch the entire 13 episode run (it was cancelled quite early).

If you can watch it, give it a try.
