TV Tonight: Eli Stone Season Two Premiere

TV Tonight: Eli Stone

Eli Stone, which premiered last Spring in the aftermath of the writers' strike and begins its second season on ABC tonight, is a warm, cozy blanket of a TV show. It doesn't get a lot of buzz — a fact it's trying to change with guest stars; more on that in a second — but it never fails to leave me with a smile on my face.

If you missed it the first time through or need a refresher, Jonny Lee Miller plays the title character, an attorney who begins having strange visions — either as the result of a brain aneurysm or because he's a modern-day prophet. The aneurysm was removed through a risky surgery at the end of the first season; what happens to the visions now remains to be, er, seen. The only certain thing is that there will be more singing and dancing, featuring supporting cast members like the wonderful Victor Garber.

Like a few other under-the-radar shows (Chuck comes to mind), Eli Stone has reeled in several high-profile guest stars for this new season, including Sigourney Weaver on tonight's premiere and Katie Holmes, whose appearance we've already gotten to glimpse, on next week's episode. Will these guest stars win any new viewers over to Eli's charming ways? Time will tell. For now, you can check out a preview of the new season if you

last year i tried to watch at least one episode but never really got into it, but now that it's coming back and has such a star studded guest cast - i think that i might be swayed to check it out.

I'm not quite sure what to make of this show. I think at times it is really awkward (like when they had the uptight old boss admit that he was in love with Eli's secretary - I was like, WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?!), and yet I find myself drawn to it too. I'll catch this later online maybe or just read Buzz's recap.

I was so surprised when I saw this was renewed. It just seemed like it didn't do very well when it aired.

I don't need any guest stars to win me over (although Sigourney Weaver can get me to watch ANYTHING...she is AWESOME), because I'm already a HUGE fan of this show!!! And I agree buzz, this show always leaves me with a smile :-)

He's her first husband. They met while filming ''Hackers''. I think they're still in good terms.

So I didn't know that Jonny Lee Miller was married to Angelina Jolie back in the day... found that out last night. Interesting
