List of Awake episodes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Awake is an American television police procedural fantasy drama, created by writer and executive producer Kyle Killen. The drama centers on Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs), a detective living in two separate realities after a car accident. In one reality, in which he wears a green wrist band, his wife Hannah Britten (Laura Allen) was killed in the crash, and in another reality, in which he wears a red wrist band, his son Rex Britten (Dylan Minnette) was the one killed. Michael does not know which reality is real. He sees two separate therapists: Dr. Jonathan Lee (BD Wong) in the "red reality", and Dr. Judith Evans (Cherry Jones) in the "green reality".

The series was conceived by Killen after creating and developing Lone Star for the Fox network.[1][2] NBC encouraged Killen to conceive a concept for a future television series.[3] Although inspired by the processes of dreaming, the script was cited as potentially being too complex for mainstream American television.[4][5] The first episode of Awake was released on Hulu on February 16,[6] officially premiering in the United States on NBC on March 1, 2012.[7] On May 11, NBC canceled the series and aired the final episode on May 24, 2012.[8]

Awake averaged 4.8 million viewers per episode and ranked 125th in viewership for the 2011–12 television season.[9] Despite its relatively short life span, the series had large support by fans who teamed up to create the "Save Awake" campaign.[10] It was well received by television critics based on its storylines.[11] "Say Hello to My Little Friend" was generally considered the best episode of the series since the pilot by commentators.[12][13] Various cast members have also been praised by critics, particularly Isaacs' performance as Michael.[14][15][16]
