I first tuned in to "Watch Over Me" to because I'm a fan of Dan Wells from his stint on Days Of Our Lives and other things he's done. To my surprise, several actors who have appeared in daytime star in the show. "Watch" works with a prime-time budget with the production values that go with it. Like any drama with a large cast, it took a few episodes to get a real feeling for the characters, the stories and how they relate to each other. So much happens every minute, that I find myself rewinding if I turn away for a moment. To aid viewers with following the show (and to assist the viewers who join late in the game), each episode begins with a recap of past episodes. On Saturdays, they have a one-hour summary of the highlights for the week. This show has a superb (and gorgeous) cast and the writing is superior. I'm officially hooked. The show is very serious but has also shown humor. I highly recommend "Watch Over Me."
