The more I watch ABC’s mid-season dramedy Eli Stone, the more I like it. (Thursdays, 10pm – but airing a new episode this Sunday as well.)
Eli Stone (Johnny Lee Miller, Hackers) is a San Francisco lawyer with an inoperable brain aneurism that causes very disruptive hallucinations that lead him to do unexpected – and generous – things. His accupuncterist suggests that his visions might be of divine origin and Eli begins to think that God is asking him to be a prophet and do things that make a difference.
Eli Stone is full of humanity and heart yet tackles some controversial issues such as sex education and gay-unions (through the improbable story of two chimps that suffer when zoo officials separate them.)
