OK I missed the first episode but here's what I got--Lawyer Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller) starts seeing and hearing people singing music which all seem to help him at particular points in his life. The problem is no one else sees or hears them. He thinks he's dying of a brain aneurysm (which killed his father) but others think he may be a prophet. In any case it's screwing up his work and love life. What to do? This reminds me of "Cop Rock" (which only lasted 4 months). That was a cop show where people just broke out into song and dance and nobody saw it as strange. I loved the show but it bombed badly. That was back in 1990--people weren't ready for it then--maybe they will be now.

This show has interesting characters, tight scripts (judging from the one episode I've seen), great music and singing. The cast is going full force too. Miller manges to completely cover his English accent and is certainly very attractive. Loretta Devine as his assistant casually tosses insults left and right in a delightful way. Victor Garber is strangely muted as Stone's boss (but that may change). This isn't for everyone but I thought it was fun, well-made and entertaining. Worth seeing.
