Coma is a two-part miniseries that starts tonight on A&E and we’ve had a chance to check it out ahead of its premiere this evening. Continue reading for impressions, a photo gallery, and a trailer:

Directed by Mikael Salomon, and produced by Ridley and Tony Scott, Coma is based on the Robin Cook novel and 1978 Michael Crichton movie. The story centers on Susan Wheeler (Lauren Ambrose), a medical student who discovers that patients are being put into a coma and killed for medical experiments.

As I’ve mentioned before, TV miniseries are starting to become obsolete. In the past, they were big events because they had a larger budget and better actors than you’d traditionally see on TV. Things have changed over the past 10-15 years and the quality of TV is higher than ever. When that is the case, it really takes something special to stand out as a TV minseries. »
