    So basically a reverse Jekyll and Hyde, he takes the potion to *not* turn into the other guy.

    I was really annoyed they didn't continue that series.

    It was so good that Slater wasn't fingernails on a blackboard annoying.

    I'm not hip enough to get that.

    Care to explain for us slow students?

    Edit: And of course the nanosecond I hit submit, I got it.

    Edit edit: It was hyding in plain sight.

    I was thinking exactly the same thing. I liked the Christian Slater series, so I'll probably give this one a go too.

    Although, based on his character in Rescue Me, it will probably take me a few episodes to get used to the idea that Steven Pasquale's character has some intelligence :)

    One of my favorite modern retelling of Jekyll and Hyde was 'Jekyll' with actor James Nesbitt. Nesbitt was fantastic playing both roles. It aired in the U.K. a few years ago.

    That's funny, I liked that show too, but before I saw what show you guys were referring to (I didn't follow the link), it seemed A TINY bit like Awake + Jeckyll/Hyde.. I liked Awake a lot too.

    If those of us who liked "worst enemy" and Awake like this new show, it's doomed to early failure.

    I was just coming here to ask: Am I wrong in thinking this is an adaptation of Jekyll? Steven Moffet's writing was amazing, and James Nesbitt's performance was stellar. I think I'd have a hard time watching Do No Harm after Jekyll.

    Funny how this series is similar to Awake (and I believe it is on at the same time) and FOX's The Following reminded me of Alcatraz (followers doing evil) which also premiered same time - one year apart.

    Are networks trying to jam a formula?

    Networks, like any other business, are always in search of a magical formula for success that will save them the trouble of being innovative and industrious and having to take chances.

    Watching this show did make me wonder how I would handle the situation he's in. I would almost think you'd consider suicide if your alternate bad guy was evil and hurt/killed people. Obviously they couldn't do that for this show, or the show would be over. Maybe that will be the series finale. :)
