Forever – TV Series Review
Plot: A 200-year-old man works in the New York City Morgue trying to find a key to unlock the curse of his immortality.
Review: I will admit it. I had been putting off watching this show, but once I got started, I was hooked.
Forever tells the long tale of one Dr. Henry Morgan. A man who cannot die… In a manner of speaking. First off, he can die, but comes back to life in the river, to continue the process of living out his immortal existence.
There are some similarities here to Highlander, quite a few actually…. McCloud (AKA: Russell Nash) owned an antique store in NYC. Here, Dr. Henry Morgan owns an antique store in NYC… The Highlander couldn’t die (unless his head was cut off), in this show, he can die, only to be resurrected some minutes later, naked and in the river. An orphaned child rescued and raised by an immortal…
Throw into the mix that he is a medical examiner and spends a lot of his time (most of it infact) helping Det Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza) solve crimes, and reminiscing about the many loves of his past.
Just how Dr Harry Morgan got this gift (or curse) of immortality has yet to be explained. The chemistry between the Ioan Gruffudd and Judd Hirsch is brilliant. You can see that the characters don’t take themselves too seriously, unlike other repetitive TV Cop shows 🙂
If you have not seen Forever, then you don’t know what you’re missing.
Verdict: It’s better to burn out than fade away.
My Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
