    Another heartwarming episode of Eli Stone this time with the visions being even more mysterious. Eli see's a man in hospital patient garb everywhere he goes. The man even comes out of the tv and starts to look more like a ghost than a typical Eli vision. What a surprise when the man shows up as a patient of his brother. The man comes out of a coma to see his wife has divorced him due to thinking he would never wake up. We get a lesson in forgiveness, moving on, and not assessing blame. Eli on the other hand chooses to cut and run from his relationship not wanting to make his wife to be watch him possibly die. This drives home Eli's painful past with his dad and the time they lost. Good episode showing so man redeeming themes for the guest and our star.moreless
  • Suing God for the Coma Guy.

    I just really like this show and I thought this was a great episode. I was a little worried that this show was going to lose it's "prophet" angle and just become a show about a lawyer with a brain tumor. I'm glad to see that was not the case. Eli seems to be coming to terms with the fact that his visions are meant to guide him and show him who to help. His brother is stuggling with it but seemed to acknowledge it at the end of the episode. Eli suing the church was interesting. It reminded me of story lines from Ali McBeal. Eli has great chemistry with Taylor and I'm routing for them to get back together. Eli also has great professional chemistry with Maggie. I hope they continue to work together.moreless
  • Better than a poke in the eye.

    I really didn't like this episode from the beginning. It made no sense, there weren't that many connections. It seemed like a hastily thrown together piece of mediocre confusion.



    First, I want to say that I was quite glad to see more of Matthew Letscher's character, Nathan. He is a fantastic actor, he always nails it emotionally and genuinely. Every scene with him in it is that much better. However, the whole supposed "connection" with the song "Good Love" was NON EXISTENT!! So Eli was having visions about this song. He made no reference to his father, and then Nathan spouts about the song holding special meaning about him and his father. It didn't make anything clearer about Eli's visions, and it didn't even pique Nathan's interest about Eli's powers. It is a bit of a stretch to say that it connects Eli's visions to his father - in past episodes, obviously this had a great deal to do with the story line. Not true in this case. The court case involving Jordan Wethersby was somewhat interesting. But I was quite disappointed when Jordan offered a job to the laywer who was suing for discrimination. It made no sense. He wasn't that great, he lost his case. He was obviously using his race as an excuse to whine about not getting the job. I was so excited about this series. Now I am very disappointed. I am still holding out hope that it will get better. Of course, I held out hope for Moonlight too... at least through 3 episodes or so.



    And the guy just dies at the end..... just dies. What the ---?moreless
