Must See TV: Eli Stone

"[A] gift is something that is given. You don't own it. The world does.
The world is asking you to use it. You don't get to say no,
no matter how much you may want to." - Eli Stone

Over the past couple weeks I've been watching Eli Stone, the 2008-09 TV dramedy that (sadly) was cancelled after two seasons. Eli is a lawyer who sees visions (which are often musical numbers) about people he needs to help. While fighting courtroom cases, he struggles with his own, and others' belief in his visions, his relationships as his life path changes, science vs. faith, and free will vs. divine will.

I loved the series and haven't been able to stop thinking about it.  If you want to check it out, it's available on Netflix (DVD and streaming) and the 1st season is on Hulu.  Here's a little musical clip from the Pilot to give you a taste:

    I too have recently started watching this on netflix and could not stop. Ended up spending my whole saturday watching season 1. I am so disappointed that I never got to show my support for the show before it was cancelled. Networks need to give people more time to find the quality shows they are looking for. I hate reality tv like bachelorette or who wants to be a pop star. Eli Stone connected with me on so many levels. I hope its not too late for another network to come by and keep it going.

    I too wish I had watched the show when it was on so I could have shown my support.

    I do wonder if it was as powerful to watch it each week with commercial interruptions, as was to watch the whole series at once.
