Fall TV Preview: Day Break

Not only was Taye Diggs just named one of People’s Sexiest Men Alive, but he’s starring in a new ABC drama, called Day Break, which premieres tonight at 8/9 c.

Judging from the pilot, Day Break could finally be Diggs’ big break, as it’s equally adept at showing off his acting chops and his sexy bod. Plus, the series has a very cool concept backing it up: Diggs is reliving a single day of his life on repeat, a la Groundhog Day. And it’s not a particularly good day, since he’s been falsely accused of murdering the Assistant D.A.

Day Break kicks off with seven of the most action-packed minutes in TV: Diggs takes a sexy shower with his lady friend, saves a woman’s life during a bus crash, finds his apartment ransacked, and gets arrested. But that’s only the beginning, because throughout the episode, the story starts over two more times, each time playing out the scenario differently depending on how Diggs attempts to change his destiny. As a viewer, you get new glimpses of what’s going on each time, so you slowly start to piece the story together, and I’m assuming the show will continue to reveal new clues with each new episode. But while that device worked well in a movie like Run Lola Run, I worry that Day Break might begin to feel repetitive when stretched over an entire season. In fact, the pilot even started to feel a little bit repetitive. Then again, after watching the pilot, I can’t wait to see what happens next, so maybe the show is on to something.

I can't imagine a show being about living the same day OVER and OVER and OVER being good at all

I for one thought that it was awesome! I have a theory that the girlfriend is somehow in on it, and that her murder is fake. Just my theory, but I guess we'll have to see what happens?!

I loved it! You just have to get past the first "bored" part. They stop showing the repetitive parts after you get the idea. Give it a chance guys. :) Just my $.02 ~Love like you've never been hurt.~

After the second time around for that day, I started to get bored with it.

I was just gonna say the same thing concerning the overkill of commercials about this show. Because of that I don't want to watch it. I'm sick of it, already!

Jericho is actually watchable..and even though I like Taye Diggs.. I am pissed over Lost getting selved until Feb 7 for a cross between Groundhog Day and 24. I am going to skip it.
