Storyline

Henry Spivey, an efficiency expert, lives a typical suburban life, right down to the wife, two kids, dog, and minivan. In contrast, Edward Albright is a lethal, multilingual operative. It would seem the two men have nothing in common -- except for the fact that they inhabit the same body. When each personality finds himself out of his element, things go awry. Written by Anonymous

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde meets True Lies
13 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Henry Spivey a expert consultant working for a big company, is happily married with two children, seems to have a life most men would envy. And then there is Edward Albright a C.I.A. agent, who has his own pleasures of taking out the enemy, he pretty much is the next best thing to James Bond. Now these two men should have nothing in common, but they do, the fact that there the same man. Henry is a secret duel identity that was created for Edward, so Edward is like sleeping when Henry takes over. And Henry has no memory of Edwards action. But then Henry soon becomes aware of Edwards existence. How will these two personalities come too adjust?

I just watched the first episode, and it seems to be an enjoyable action spy thriller. I hope it lasts about as long as Alias(2001-2006) did. The writers of the show I hope are brilliant if they can have a show about a man with duel personalities going for years, but if they don't, we'll they deserve credit for trying anyway. The Jekyll and Hyde part is interesting, you get the Henry and Edward part. Christian Slater is great and convincing has both personalities. He plays it has the same man from two different universes. I liked the series so far, I hope it will last a while, but if it doesn't, like I said thanks for trying anyway.
