Cool premise, but acting/stories are just 'ok' ...
31 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show started off sounding great, but its only real strength seems to lie in the novelty aspect of the lead character. The acting and stories are a bit soft.

The show is about a 400 year old man who doesn't seem to age past his 30s. He's a police detective in New York and is destined to immortality until a particular circumstance arises.

OK - that sounds pretty cool. It was totally cool until we learn that the special condition was that he won't regain his mortality until he "weds" his one true love ("their souls are wed"). That sounds a bit cheesy.

Another issue is that the episodes aren't very memorable. The only interesting parts are bits that involve his immortality (his children, his past, etc). I can recall those little snippets, but can hardly remember the previous week's episode. The story-telling isn't very compelling.

If you're a sci-fi/fantasy fan, check out an episode or two and see what you think. If you're like me, it's worth watching, but just barely. If you're only in the market for an all-around good TV show, look elsewhere.
