Michael Britten (played by Jason Isaacs) is a cop with a foot in two worlds. In one, his wife is alive and his son is dead. In the other, he's got his son, but his wife is gone. Which is real and which the dream? He's not sure.
In the premiere of this drama, a detective awakens after his family's car accident to discover he's living in two parallel worlds. In one, his wife survived the crash and his son perished. In the other, his son continues to live but his wife was killed. While trying to regain footing in his complex double lives, he continues his efforts to crack cases in both worlds.
"That's exactly what the other shrink said." I loved 'Awake' - the way it went between past and present was coherent, complex and heartbreaking as the lead character had to learn to cope with both realities. Jason Isaacs acted his socks off and the rest of the cast made this a truly great show. I wish so much that it had been given a second season, it was cancelled too early. :/ A show that I'll happily rewatch, anytime...
I loved this show. I've watched over 200 shows and this is one of my favorite.Picture living in 2 realities in which you have something different you love in both... but you don't know which reality is actually real. The twist of reality and fiction, the truth, the deception, the conviction and the depth.It is acted stupendously and the story gave me goosebumps. I recommend this show to the mystery drama fanatic.
