Storyline

On the day that she meets self-proclaimed therapist Dr. Tom in the hospital, Erica has had the latest in a string of bad days: she gets fired from her dead end customer service job at an insurance agency for being too bright; she gets dumped by her latest boyfriend who she met over the Internet; and she gets hospitalized for drinking a specialty coffee containing nuts, she being deathly allergic to nuts.

Unbeknownst to Erica, Dr. Tom is not quite who he appears. Erica provides Dr. Tom with a long list of those bad decisions which she most regrets, those she terms as keeping her awake at night.

Another story about our fears, about our mistakes and feels. There is nothing real interesting in the first episode. The serial is similar to a film "Back in the future", only without Michael J. Fox's charm. I would like to note some positive moments in the pilot episode: the beautiful actress in a leading role, the charismatic actor as Tom, disposal from bothered "paradoxes of time".

Not the most successful serial though, maybe, script writers will manage to make of it something decent. Probably, I too strongly criticize a serial, having looked only one episode - and it is not absolutely correct. But also it seems to me, what the pilot episode should be breathtaking, whether not so?
