What if you were immortal? Would it matter to you if those around were not? Dr. Henry Morgan
played by Ioan Gruffudd is indeed immortal and has been around for 300 or so years and has seen and has gone through death a lot. Every time he dies he wakes up in a body of water…naked.
Judd Hirsh back from the days of Taxi plays his sidekick Abe and when I learned what their relationship in the show is(you’re going to have to watch it…I will not give it away here) that is when I said this is a show I am going to watch. I love smart writing and interesting character relationships. Gruffudd’s character is a coroner or some sort of post mortem body examiner. He meets detective Jo Martinez
played by Alana De La Garza when he is involved in a case where a subway train conductor dies. He is treated as a suspect and proves much like Sherlock Holmes that he is not the murderer.
Throughout the pilot we learned a little about the character’s life and lost love. It plays with the idea of immortality being so great but you still feel pain both physical and emotional. I cannot wait for this show to officially premiere and other episodes to come out. You can watch it on Hulu or you can wait and with it on ABC on TUE SEPT 23 10|9c. I will be watching it again, and if you know me you know I never watch anything twice.Grade: A+
