If you can't die right the first time...
27 September 2014 | by yooniverseSee all my reviews

...die, die again!

That's sort of the premise. He's died a lot, so he knows a lot about death--clever premise for why he's a medical examiner now.

I see some similarities to the canceled show "New Amsterdam": immortality, working to solve crimes, and especially the setting in New York--the rich history of NYC certainly makes sense as the stage for an immortality premise. But whereas "New Amsterdam" seemed more somber in that it tried to explore the emotional pains of immortality, "Forever" seems to incorporate a lighter approach that makes a show like "Castle" such a success. Acting and chemistry among the cast appear to be very good and unforced (somewhat rare right from the pilot episode), and in the first couple of shows so far, the story has begun introducing some promising elements. I think a fantasy premise like this always risks "jumping the shark" in fear of losing the novelty too quickly and hence the viewership, but I hope they will resist the urge-- especially the most tempting but fatal thing to do on a show about immortality--rushing to answer the "how" and "why" he became immortal. Being judicious about peeling away this mystery will help it last longer. In fact, I'd be okay if they saved that for the very last show, or not reveal it at all. After all, he's lived for 200 years without being able to answer it--he doesn't have to somehow magically figure it out now in the show's time-line--that would be jumping the shark. Please don't spoil it!
