I'm surprised no one has started a thread for this, and I hope it doesn't mean anyone's watching.
"Forever," a new ABC series, started this week. They had their premier Monday and then second episode last night at it's normal time.
The show features a man - Henry - who cannot die (he's 35 "forever"). He has lived now for more than 200 years, and whenever he dies, he disappears and is reborn in water - which leads to a bit of humor. He has a friend - played by Judd Hirsch, who he has taken care of since an infant (friend was a Holocaust survivor).
Because Henry cannot die - he records all his means of death to find out how he can someday finally be at rest. Doing several jobs throughout the centuries, he now works as an ME, and is teams up with an officer and helps solve cases in is unusual and "sixth sense" way - mostly because he's died some of the deaths he's viewed.
It's actually a nice mix of humor, seriousness, and mystery. The ONLY aspect I don't like is this "Adam" fellow who supposedly is experiencing what Henry is experiencing. I am hoping this is not a continuing thread throughout its run, because that will get old pretty fast. You can have people find out what is really going on in his life without constantly leaving cliffhangers around.
I think it can last a long time, but it will need viewer support. Putting it on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. (Central) will help it out some though - it's not up against a ton of challengers.
