One of my favorite shows has finally come back. The show Life airs on NBC on Wednesdays at 8pm. It involves a detective Charlie Crews that was found guilty of murder but has been released after serving 12 years. The conviction was overturned by DNA evidence. Charlie got a substantial monetary settlement from the state for the time he served as an innocent man. While serving in prison Charlie has embraced the art of Zen.
This is one of the smartest shows on television. Charlie is always cool under pressure and is able to solve the crime through his intelligence and willingness to solve the case no matter what. He has already found the real killer from the murders that he was found guilty of years ago. But by solving that he has uncovered a plot that lead to framing him by others in the LAPD.
This is one of the few funny moments in the show.
I have always liked the actor Damian Lewis. He is perfect for this role. If you like smart shows that have twists through out, sprinkled with bits of humor check out Life.
