As a new and different comedy/law show/fantasy from ABC, Eli Stone has surprisingly become a fast favorite of mine. The premise: Eli Stone is a lawyer who begins having hallucinations. The hallucinations are the result of a brain aneurysm. But the hallucinations are strangely symbolic and seem to be coming from God. Eli is a reluctant prophet whose life gets turned upside down, but begins to change for the better.
So without further ado, here are 13 Reasons to Watch Eli Stone:
1. George Michael songs. Most of Eli’s hallucinations revolve around some of George’s best songs.
2. Jonny Lee Miller – Couldn’t have been better cast. Superb acting.
3. It’s funny. Singing and dancing and slaying dragons? Poor Eli finds himself unable to distinguish his visions from reality until after the fact.
