After last week's ambitious, captivating premiere (still available to view online), Awake's creators have their work cut out. They've got a narrative set-up that needs to remain unresolved, yet they still have to find ways to push it forwards.
Still, there's a lot of insight, character and interesting material to be mined from the basic set-up yet. Witness this revelation about fabric softener for example.
What a brilliant bit of writing.
I bet you $50 that, at some point, Michael wakes up in another reality where both his wife and son are dead. I bet you $50 more that he wakes up in another where both are still alive. All bets are off if the show gets cancelled before the second season.
