    It's good, complicated drama, sometimes hard to watch, but more compelling evidence that the best storytelling for adults these days is on the small screen.

    "Day Break" asks viewers for faith, to believe unanswered questions will not go unanswered forever, and that every episode will be worth experiencing. For now, I'm willing to take that leap of faith, because the action is swift, the acting is taut and the premise is cool.

    It's a one-of-a-kind thriller that rewards your attention with nonstop action, endless surprises, exciting cinematography and a great assortment of characters.

  • Glenn Garvin

    Intense and fascinating.

  • Jonathan Storm

    A well-made rocket ride that's closer to 24 than anything else on TV.

    Diggs is a very good actor. Attempting to pull off a complicated scenario like this would be tough for a vet, let alone someone who made his bones in musical theater.

  • Robert Abele

    Because Hopper can radically rejigger events for better or worse -- a decision that prevents one disaster might cause another - Day Break... feels like the first video-game-era series.

    Following the show will require some effort for viewers accustomed to less demanding fare.

  • Aaron Barnhart

    After the nerve-jangling first episode, I predict you’ll be hooked.

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    The thing is, if you can let go of the "Groundhog Taye" problem, it's a decent little thriller with a sci-fi twist.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    "Day Break" has enough suspense and clever turns to tempt viewers to stay and see how the next day breaks.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Gillian Flynn

    At its best, Day Break has a Choose Your Own Adventure feel... [It] just needs to get those pages flying a little faster.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    It may not be blessed with the most felicitous dialogue of all time, but “Day Break” is a solidly constructed and fast-paced drama.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    "Day Break" is an intricate, imaginative series designed to make you ask questions at every turn, but the killer will be, "What else is on?"

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    As much fun as it might be for some of us to start our Wednesday nights watching a shirtless Taye Diggs get out of bed - just as it was once fun to watch Agents Mulder and Scully chase goblins and ghosties and things that go bump in the night - these TV conspiracies have a way of ending badly.

  • Brian Lowry

    There's a fine line between mysterious and just plain mystifying, and "Day Break" lurches over it.

    Variety Full Review
  • Mike Duffy

    Slick, predictably convoluted and pumped up on conspiratorial dread, "Day Break" may be a trifle late to the serial thriller party.

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Paul Brownfield

    You begin to feel strung along on an errand whose complexities can't mask the fact that the main character isn't great company.

  • Tim Goodman

    At some point, your head will explode.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Spend two hours tonight with this murky, muddled serial, and you may already feel as if you've been trapped in this day for an eternity.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tom Shales

    Intriguing and confounding though it is, this is anything but easy, funsy television. In fact, there are times when a viewer may feel he's being punished almost to the same degree as Detective Hopper.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Troy Patterson

    Diggs has considerable magnetism, but it would take the charisma of a cult leader to disguise the fact that this show sometimes reads like a '70s conspiracy thriller as interpreted by the makers of Bad Boys II.

    Slate Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    "Day Break" is both dark and frustrating.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Charlie McCollum

    The upside to the series is that Diggs is good enough and the production slick enough that, for a while, you might be willing to play along the don't-think-too-hard-about-it premise.... [But] Hopper's day becomes pretty boring after a while.

    San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    "Day Break" doesn't quite work, not only because of its redundancies but because its story line becomes simultaneously convoluted and pointless.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    And you thought Lost could be confusing. At least it doesn't give you a headache just thinking about it.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    They say insanity is performing the same action repeatedly and hoping for a different outcome. For ABC and "Day Break," insanity may be expecting viewers to watch the same day over and over and be interested in the infinite minor and major variations.

    The season's silliest new action-fantasy-adventure.
