Like FleshEatingZipper, NBC’s new detective thriller – Awake – is full of layers, which is to say we’re sophisticated. We’ll cover virtually anything under the sun and Awake has clever, multi-threaded investigations each episode, so it makes sense that we would bring them on as our newest sponsor. Every morning, Michael Britten awakes to a new reality in which either his wife or his son is dead after a terrible car crash. He ping-pongs between these parallel universes in each episode as he solves the greatest mystery of all: why he’s stuck this way.
Now let’s be honest, who wouldn’t kill to live between two slightly separate lives? Maybe in one you won the lottery and are covered for life with a palace made of gold? Wait, but maybe in the other you mortgaged your house to buy lottery tickets and now live in a box? Awww man, who would want to alternate between being a king and a bum on a daily basis? I suppose if you were a detective, your benefits include a ‘not live in a box’ policy, but imagine people from the alternate universe started laughing behind your back because they secretly know that you invented the new Facebook in the other timeline?
Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is that you should check out ‘Awake’ on NBC, which was voted one of the ‘Most Exciting New Series’ at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards and one of our awesome sponsors!
