The new FOX show is based on M.J. Rose’s book “The Reincarnationist,” and follows a pair of detectives who investigate past lives. Sounds a bit Fringe-ish to us, though that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Plus, its got former West Wing-er Richard Schiff to boost its credit.
Premieres on Feb. 11 at 8 p.m.
NBC is dipping into the realm of post-apocalypse with new show Day One. At first the show was slated for a short 13-episode season, but was later reduced to a mini-series – probably a good choice, but still, we’ll be glad to check it out. For now, Day One is expected to run in March after the 2010 Olympics.
The latest from the Battlestar Galactica universe, Caprica will focus on the creation of the Cylons and will begin 58 years before the events of BSG. It’ll be a look at the pre-war BSG world at its prime, which piques our interest, too. The show will start airing on Syfy on Jan. 22.
Possibly the new show I’m most excited for is FOX’s Human Target, based on the DC Comics hero, Christopher Chance. The promo boasts a nice budget with good effects and action sequences and the plot seems solid. Premieres on Jan. 17 at 9 p.m.
