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

Has some potential, but some episodes leading to fatal mistakes
11 November 2008 | by judywalker2See all my reviews

I like Christian Slater and I think he does very, very well portraying both Edward and Henry. The whole premise is very interesting and the first few episodes peaked my interest as to where they would be taking this. Then they made a fatal error and allow Tom to be too visible and then the very fatal error of involving his wife. It was one thing to have Henry/Edward's wife involved, she at least is an essential character. But to involve Tom's wife well who cares! So now I don't know what to do about this show. Like Journeyman, of which I was a big fan, I wish the writers would do a better job and I wish the networks would give the shows a fighting chance by insisting on tight scripts. But I know it's all about the money and low rating means no money so good and potentially good shows are canceled. I fear the same thing will happen here if the writing and the ratings don't pick up.
