Caught the preview last night. It's about a detective who gets into a car accident with his wife and son. After the accident, he lives in two worlds. In one his wife dies and his son survives. In the other one, his son dies but his wife survives.
It's supposed to premier March 1st but the first episode in online on hulu and I'm assuming nbc.com. It's also on NBC's on-demand channel on Verizon.
I've watched all the episodes. I only watched one on network tv. The show was completely ruined by commercials. The rest were so intense that you want to become emotionally invested in the characters. There hasn't been a show on tv like that in a long time.
The most recent episode has a scene where the detective has to deal with someone that psychologically lives in two worlds. Very interesting study.
The latest episode was kinda trippy with the penguin and all. But it looks like the show is a gonner I hope at least the conspiracy is revealed with Britten's captain and her accomplice, the head of the physics department at Cal Tech on The Big Bang Theory
Ah well, looks like this was an one season plot anyways. But what a great finale!! I felt like I was playing Max Payne/Silent Hill/Alan Wake all in one. Such an video game episode.. fantastico. It was a perfect closure.
Don't know the circumstances behind the final episode. Was it written after NBC cancelled it?
Or the final episode was meant to be a season finale. Anyways, I was satisfied with the ending. Honestly, I can't picture this series past a regular 24-ish episode season. But sad to see it go. This and Person of Interest were my favorite series this year. Hope it makes it to blu-ray.
I was browsing some of the comments on hulu and someone noticed that in one reality, all the computers were PC while in the other, all Macs . If that's true, then it's a nice touch
I thing the finale ended with a third dream state. I think his family is dead in both based on the scened where the two captains were sitting on the park bench. She said, "Did you have to kill his whole family?"
For anyone watching this show it should be watched without commercial interruption. We watched one show with commercials and it ruined it.
In a recent interview, the creator said the final scene was a indeed a third state. He also said that the last scene was set in stone when during the time when the series was being pitched to the various network.
So, if the series did get renewed, the last scene would be another/third state. But since it was cancelled the last scene could easily be interpreted as Britten being in a dream state all along with both son and wife alive.
The creator also said that if the series continued, it would be less procedural and Britten would get his groove on with the tennis instructor.
I knew the show was canceled but I finished the season anyway. Glad I did - the last three episodes were the best of the series. I know this won't happen but it would be nice if netflix or hulu picked up the show.
