Eli Stone on ABC

This is becoming one of my favorite TV shows on right now. Eli Stone is on ABC and I love the premise of this new show. Eli is a successful lawyer for a big prominent firm in San Fransisco and engaged to one of the partner's daughter. All that changes when he discovers he is having visions of warning supposedly caused by an aneurysm in his brain. But through his powerful position at the firm he is able to help some very deserving people find justice. Of course, he struggles with the idea that he's getting these visions from God and his job is put in jeopardy when he periodically bursts out in song and dance (some of my favorite scenes).

I like this new twist on the lawyer plot and I love the stories the show portrays. And I love Victor Garber as the head of the firm as well as James Saito as the acupuncturist who helps Eli interpret his visions.

If you get a chance, head over to abc.com to check out some of the episodes - the most recent one is great. Let me know what you think.

I haven't watched this one but I know it was on after LOST in the 9:00 Thursday time slot. Have they moved it? LOST is back next Thursday and they moved it to the 9:00 slot. I haven't heard what they were doing with Eli Stone.

I don't know what they're doing with it now, but they had two new episodes this last week. They might be pushing it off a little to make room for LOST - makes sense because that is such a huge show. Or maybe the season's over for Eli Stone...
