ABC's Day Break with Taye Diggs

Yesterday I had the opportunity to watch ABC’s new drama, Day Break starring Taye Diggs. To be honest, it was my sincerest intention to skip this new television show. I watch too much television as it is, and I don’t need to get sucked into another show. Regardless of that, I watched the entire two-hour premier.

The reason I wasn’t going to watch, the aforementioned notwithstanding, is that I thought Taye ‘s deliveries were a bit robotic from the previews and they were. Robocop aside, the program was captivating. At first I was anticipating some boring moments particularly when he started the day over but dull moments never came. There were enough questions and intrigue to keep me watching. I liked that not even the people I would expect to know what’s going on didn’t understand why or how Taye’s character, Brett (what kind of Black name is that?), anticipated certain things after he started a day over.

I guess the question is whether or not the Day Break is worth the watch. I guess the question is whether or not the Day Break is worth the watch …

Well, yes it is because it definitely has several mysteries that potential viewers can get in to. I’m sure that each different nuance and character drama coincides with the bigger picture, which is all the more reason to watch. Additionally, Adam Baldwin plays an internal affairs investigator who happens to be the ex-husband of Brett’s girlfriend. He is definitely entertaining and his interactions with Brett stir up a little versatility from Taye.

One reason to stay away, and it pains me to say this, is Taye Diggs’ monotone delivery. It can be a little distracting at times. It is a good thing that Day Break is only slated for a limited number of weeks because I don’t see it lasting more than that. It’s a good show and great premise but doesn’t seem to have staying power. I do hope I’m wrong.

Day Break starring Taye Diggs airs every Wednesday night on ABC at 9/8c.
