Awake Season 1, Episode 1 Summary

It's not usual that you'll find a crime drama that is particularly unique anymore, due to how many there have been. Awake, however, is very different from the rest. Jason Isaacs (who is very good in it and manages to pull of a very believable American accent) stars as Detective Britten, who has just been in a car crash with his wife and his son. However, during this, his life is somehow split into two realities. One where his wife survived and one where his son survived. All the while, he is going to a shrink in both realities, that are both telling him that that world is real. The very interesting part though, is the fact that both of these realities help him to solve crimes and even stopping them from happening.
Yes I know, it all sounds very confusing, but it's actually portrayed in a very simple way. This is due to a couple of reasons. For one, he has a different partner and shrink in each reality. So, all in all,  it was a very promising pilot and I hope it keeps it up the whole series!
