I can’t believe it’s already Thursday—this week has been flying by! Although, it’s been a bit of a struggle keeping up with all this week’s boatload of new TV (when did Mondays and Tuesdays become the new Sundays?!). While tonight seems like an unusually lighter Thursday (at least for me), there’s still plenty of stuff to watch. So let’s get on to what we recommend you check out tonight.
Kyle’s Choice #1
Tonight, NBC kicks off its new Jekyll and Hyde series, Do No Harm. Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale) is a successful neurosurgeon with a secret—he has Dissociative Identity Disorder. At night, his evil alter ego, Ian Price, tries to come out and take over his body. Cole had been managing to use drugs to suppress his alternate identity, but Price is growing immune to their effects. Now Cole must to try to find another way to control Price and to keep the details of his own life a secret so that Price can’t hurt the ones he loves. The series also stars Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show), Alana De La Garza (CSI: Miami), Ruta Gedmintas (The Borgias), and Samm Levine (NCIS).
This show was a surprise hit for me. When I first saw the description for the series, I thought it was just going to be another boring, unoriginal show. However, when I watched the pilot, I immediately hooked and wanted to see more. It’s sort of like Dexter meets House meets mystery drama. I found it to be very creative and loved the tense twists and turns. And I think Steven Pasquale (who will always be “that guy from Recue Me” to me) does an excellent job at playing both roles.
On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” after five years of peace, Dr. Cole’s sinister alter ego is back with a vengeance.
