So the premise - the main character, Henry, played by Ioan Gruffudd. He did such an amazing job with the character so far. His story is that he cannot stay dead. He can get shot, impaled, hit by a car, you name it, but he "survives" death by waking up in water. He is also super smart and can "see everything" around him. I love how he can take one look at the scene and know exactly what is going on. So magic. He is a medical examiner and starts to work with a pretty nice looking detective.
The side characters, the detective played by Alana De La Garza and Abe played by Judd Hirsch are so awesome. I cannot wait to see how their stories develop more, especially Abe. Don't want to spoil things, but he has a pretty neat start and is the only other person that knows Henry's story.
There are also flashbacks to Abigail, played by Mackenzie Mauzy. Abigail is Henry's love and something tragic must have happened, but we do not know the story yet. We get to see these cool flashbacks to the 1940s when they were together.
There is also this mysterious man who knows Henry's secret, but we do not know exactly how and it sounds like he may have the same secret. This mystery is also slowly unfolding.
So, we have so many amazing layers that make for a smart, entertaining show! I cannot wait until next week for the next episode! Forever airs on Tuesdays at 9pm central! Check it out!
