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
