Awake is a new show NBC is attempting, with a premise that is a little confusing. After an accident, Detective Michael Britten is living in two separate realities. One where his wife has survived the accident and the other where his son has survived. He falls asleep in one reality and wakes up in the other. He is seeing two different psychiatrists who assure him that the reality they are in is the real consciousness. The show is a challenge to watch at times because he is in and out of each reality and solving crimes all at the same time. It’s not horrible but it takes patience.
