DAY BREAK

TV Review by David Blackwell

starring Taye Diggs and Adam Baldwin

premieres November 15, 2006 on ABC on Wednesdays at 9 pm ET/PT

(two episode premiere on 11-15-2006)

STUDIO: Touchstone TV

"For every decision, there is a consequence."

Those words ring true for everything the framed LAPD detective Hopper (Taye Diggs) does as his day repeats over and over again as he tries to find out about why he is being framed for the murder of Assistant District Attorney Garza. DAY BREAK is utterly amazing. It never stops as it is the best freaking TV pilot of the season next to THE NINE. Hell, it might even be a better opener than the one for THE NINE. As long as DAY BREAK stays a single sseason series and keeps up the caliber of writing and action, DAY BREAK could be one of the best shows of this season. Firefly fans will love the scene in the elevator between Adam Baldwin and Taye Diggs.

DAY BREAK is a Groundhog Day type police thriller as Hopper repeats the same day over and over. His actions each time changes events. Sometimes he ends up in the same places during a different time of day. Who is the mysterious man in the gravel pit that wants Hopper to take the fall? He is trying to find out who wants him to be the fall guy for a crime he knows he didn't do, protect the woman he loves and his sister's family from being killed, and live to see tomorrow (instead of repeating the day one more time- which you will see him do for a few episodes). Word to the wise for ABC- no second season.
