First Look: Eli Stone

One of the most intriguing shows of the Winter TV season is ABC's Eli Stone, which will premiere Jan. 31 immediately after the season premiere of Lost. The show, about a ruthless, soulless attorney who starts having visions of dead relatives and George Michael, is the latest from TV producer extraordinaire Greg Berlanti, who counts Brothers & Sisters and Dirty Sexy Money among his hits.

Jonny Lee Miller of Trainspotting and the short-lived Smith stars as Eli, who is either a spiritual prophet or the victim of a destructive brain aneurysm — take your pick. The chief symptom, from the clips I've seen so far, seems to be that Eli constantly hears George Michael's "Faith." (Watching said clips has led to a condition in which I also constantly hear "Faith," but I'm pretty sure I'm no prophet.) Eventually, though, Eli will start using his visions — and his newfound soft side — for good, taking on his own law firm and working for the little guy instead.

I'm not sure how well this show will match with Lost, but it's a quirky enough premise that I'm planning to give it a shot. Plus, I have a hard time saying no to anything with Victor "Jack Bristow" Garber. What about you? To watch the trailer and a couple of clips from the premiere episode, just

Love Johnny Lee Miller. And it's nice to see a Chinese character without an accent, for a change. The George Michael thing looks like it will quickly get tiresome though, kinda like the ooga-chuga song on Ally McBeal - hope they drop that part from the show.

I can't lie. I just moved to San Fran in July, and I really only want to watch the show becuase this is set in it! But, I have really liked a lot of the ABC shows this season. Pushing Daisies, Women's Murder Club (LOVE Angie Harmon) and I have just gotten into Grey's. Count me in!

The first time I saw anything for this was at the Disney MGM park, in an ABC-themed restaurant where they showed clips for upcoming series/seasons of ABC shows. I thought it was a joke at first, but now that I know more of the backstory, it doesn't seem too weird.
