Awake: TV Review

by Jesus Ibarra

NBC goes big with Awake, after shelving it for midseason; people finally get to see this great piece of television. I am not exaggerating when I say that this is one of the best pilots I have ever seen (and I have seen a lot). It is near perfect. It succeeds on what I believe a pilot should be: a short mini film that tells you an engaging, engrossing story that ends with an open-enough question that makes you want to watch more episodes.
