    I liked Awake too.

    Do you have any theories about what is happening to Michael?

    I have a few however I'm leaning towards my coma theory.

    Coma seems too obvious, and the preview for next week's episode leads me away from it. From the few seconds I saw, it seems like his car accident was planned.

    Reminds me of that film "Awake" - that was a kinda screwy and sad film.

    It sounded like one of those "make everyone afraid of non-scary things" type of movies. The show only reminds me of it by name alone.

    Awake the movie... I couldn't finish it because all I could see was Anakin Skywalker and was waiting for him to wake up and do this.

    Back to point. I've watched the premier. I love it. I'm studying this kind of stuff and its giving me the chills watching them breaking his belief systems and trying to convince what is reality, what is real and what's really happening.... I love it. If the series continues with this whole Intreatment/Criminal Intent stuff, I'd say woo hoo!

    the premise was ok until they made it just another detective show.

    Give episode 2 a shot, from the previews I think it's going to change from "just another detective show." Or at least be 50/50.

    Edit: Alright, just watched episode 2. FANTASTIC. I'm a fan of detective shows, so you might still not like it, but adding in the emotional aspect of losing his family, the psychological aspects presented by the psychiatrists, and the conspiracy added in the last 2 minutes of the episode make for an excellent drama that I hope makes it further than The Event did.

    Been enjoying it, hanging out for the next episode which for me, here in Aus, I'll be downloading it on the 16th (When it gets released).

    So Episode 3...nothing too special. Just an episode to help establish some more of the physics behind the dreams.

    And thinking back on episode 2, I wonder if the conspiracy is real or created by the dream something like Shutter Island.

    Sometimes I find it hard to believe the main guy is the same guy who played Lucius Malfoy. It's just not the same without his ridiculously good looking long blonde hair XD ahaha

    I'm enjoying the psychological aspects they are exploring. The fact that everything around him could be the cause of schizophrenia creating a false reality like the one seen in the last episode is just so cool because it's so sensible but too overt to be true. No way would the writers play their hands so quickly.

    They touched up on what's happening a few episodes ago, but never revisited it. At the end of an episode

    Awake sounded good but the pilot did nothing for me. Under the slightly fantasy/sci-fi premise it's just a family/cop drama.

    Aaaahhhhhh. They just barely eked out a bit of info of what happened/what's happening. I really hope things jump into the insane sooner rather than later. I enjoy detective stories but that's not what I'm watching this show for.

    Yeah the episodes are trying to confuse you from which is real. I've read somewhere (facebook page?) they extended this first season so the last episode is a two hour season finale?
