  • Starring: Adam Baldwin, Taye Diggs, Meta Golding
  • Summary: Replacing "Lost" in ABC's Wednesday night lineup (until February) is this Groundhog Day-esque drama about a cop (Taye Diggs) who keeps re-living the same day over and over again. And what a bad day it is: among other things, his girlfriend is killed, and he is framed for a murder he didn't commit.
  • Genre(s): Drama, Action & Adventure, Suspense, Science Fiction

    "Day Break" asks viewers for faith, to believe unanswered questions will not go unanswered forever, and that every episode will be worth experiencing. For now, I'm willing to take that leap of faith, because the action is swift, the acting is taut and the premise is cool.
  2. A well-made rocket ride that's closer to 24 than anything else on TV.

    Because Hopper can radically rejigger events for better or worse -- a decision that prevents one disaster might cause another - Day Break... feels like the first video-game-era series.
  4. As much fun as it might be for some of us to start our Wednesday nights watching a shirtless Taye Diggs get out of bed - just as it was once fun to watch Agents Mulder and Scully chase goblins and ghosties and things that go bump in the night - these TV conspiracies have a way of ending badly.
  5. Reviewed by: Troy Patterson
    Diggs has considerable magnetism, but it would take the charisma of a cult leader to disguise the fact that this show sometimes reads like a '70s conspiracy thriller as interpreted by the makers of Bad Boys II.
  6. 50
    Spend two hours tonight with this murky, muddled serial, and you may already feel as if you've been trapped in this day for an eternity.

    The season's silliest new action-fantasy-adventure.
