    • above average but theres a reason why it tanked

      Theres not much to say about daybreak, it was a okay idea and it had enough to keep you entertained for a couple of episodes but that was kind of it. That's why its a good movie idea, a movie is only two hours this was suppose to last a season. I guess people got bored of the possibilities and tuned out. This is a pretty underrated show but it wasn't worth watching for too long because you knew it was going to get canceled. The acting, story and ideas were all there but something just tuned me out for awhile. Not a bad idea, but not that great of onemoreless
    • Entertainment for the mind that goes beyond the usual movie length and keeps you guessing in between...

      The only reason this show got canceled was because the viewers had to use their brains - and that is too much to ask of a consumer living of 'reality' & so-called talent shows. Throw something new into the soup and of course the ratings will plummet. This show is a trendsetter in it's own right and has proven to be true in that you put out new shows that expect the viewer to do more than just blink, drool and cheer they get bored and switch channels, or at least this is what happened in the US. In Europe the show was relatively successful and reached good audience figures (keeping in mind that it was just screened to satellite and cable viewers and not even half of Europe's viewers have those). Entertainment for the mind that goes beyond the usual movie length and keeps you guessing in between. Wake up people, it's time to think again!moreless
    • One of the best action shows.

      Day Break was one of the best action shows ever to be seen on television. It's intelligent storytelling, fantastic characters and creative writing sold it all very well.

      The main conception of the show is that Detective Brett Hopper is framed for murder. Yes, but.... he constantly relives the same day over and over again, which gives him a chance to find out who wants to frame him and why.

      Each episode gives us new pieces of the puzzle and a new perspective. All 13 episodes have the same amount of suspense and mystery, that, makes this show what it is.

      Taye Diggs' portrayal of Det Brett Hopper is probably just as good as Kiefer Sutherland's portrayal of Jack Bauer. Guns look good in his hands.

      While the show's mythology(why is he reliving the same day) was not explained,you're not really going to except that. The reason for that is simply because eventually you'll realize it's just a plot element. And as I mentioned above, a great one.

      The show basically always ends with an amazing cliffhanger. In fact, this show is like pure adrelaine. There's no reason for you not to get this on DVD and watch it in a day. Trust me, once you put the disk into the DVD player, you won't be able to stop.

      This show offers something new. Something that eventually led to it's cancellation. Action show that's actually serialised with a complicated mythology.

      It's a fresh take on the genre, and I'm very very sad that it didn't last longer. There's just so much more potential left in it...

      But still. I bow down infront of the excellent Cast and Crew for giving us 13 incredible episodes.moreless
    • Det Bret Hopper is framed for a murder, and he is also living one day continually over and over, discovering more clues to a larger conspiracy.

      The premise is not entirely new, but it is not really a sci-fi show. The aspect of living every day over and over is never really explained, but thats not the important part. The show is very fast paced with tons of action each episode. Each episode, Det. Hopper unveils a little bit more in a larger conspiracy against him, and about the people who framed him. I feel that this show is excellent as a standalone series by itself. I do realize that the show got canceled, but the end was very well made, and almost all of the loose ends are tied up. Anyone who like the action/adventure genre, 24, Spooks, should watch this show. It is excellent and entertaining to the last episode.moreless
    • My second best faviored TV series Just after Band of Brothers

      the action , suspence was so good that it felt better than any of the prison break episodes.I know for some reason some people dont like this show,but for me it was amazing.

      I liked the ending and i also liked the fact that their was no second season also....

      also have to say teh standards of acting is very good. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - -moreless
