Looks like NBC is at it again. First they took his basis from "Unbreakable" and created a mythical tale of everyday people discovering their otherworldly abilities in "Heroes." Now they're turning his Academy Award nominated story of seeing dead people from "The Sixth Sense" into a detective off-beat dramedy with Jeff Goldblum called "Raines." The funny thing is, I know I'm gonna love it.
Last summer I wrote a pre-emptive post on "Heroes" and believed I wasn't going to enjoy it. I couldn't have been more wrong. Again, NBC has got me, and I get the feeling I won't be the only one. With great wit, double-take filmmaking, and Jeff Goldblum in a revitalizing lead role with some great comic timing, it's Monk meets The Office. Even the catchy, big band tune that scores the previews sparks my attention. It's also good to see Madeline Stowe back on the scene. She hasn't made an impact since "The Last of the Mohicans."
Catch it next Wednesday. It Should be great.
