Daybreak, Deja Vu?

So, they preempted Lost for 12 weeks to roll out this series called Daybreak. It's all about deja vu, and reliving the same day repetitively. Now I'm having deja vu, because it isn't February 2nd, but I keep thinking of Groundhog Day. Groundhog Day and Man on Fire, that's what this thing reminds me of, it's something of a cross between those two, both films that I've seen before, multiple times, making me think I've seen this before, which is a serious case of deja vu.

Not to be confused with the movie Deja vu, starring Denzel Washington, who is also the star of Man on Fire, which was being advertised at the same time Daybreak was...

Then there was the "Is that Jayne?" moment. But it wasn't. Clearly he's the Major from ID4 with a desk job.

...is this confusing yet? I could try harder, you know.

"Is it any good", I hear you asking. Why yes, they're all good. Well, I can't speak for Deja vu, because I haven't seen that one yet; at least I don't think I have. And the deja vu that I'm getting from watching Daybreak as the sun rises is making me wonder if it isn't February 2nd, and whether I'll wake up and trip over my gun, or just hear Bob Dylan one... more... time...



I did see Deja Vu (or I saw it again, maybe) and it was good, if a little predictable. Day Break, on the other hand disappeared without a trace.

The episodes are viewable on ABC.com, but one has to wonder whose lame idea it was to shoot and promote a show that they weren't going to seriously attempt to air (6 episodes isn't serious, it's a joke) as long as you are burning through those dollars, ABC, why don't you send some of it my way. I'm sure I can come up with some ideas for you to spend money on and not show just as well as the next guy...
