Life: We've all been there — put in jail for a crime we didn't commit. Okay, maybe not, but Detective Charlie Crews (Damian Lewis) sure has. After years in prison, he rejoins the police force and sets out to give himself a second chance at living. Possessed of a unique outlook - one that appreciates the little things and takes nothing for granted - Crews finds himself rejoining the job, and the life, that he once loved. Airing on Wednesdays at 10 on NBC, Life also features Adam Arkin as Crews' former cellmate. Trust us, he looks good in stripes.
Moonlight: Not to be confused with Moonlighting (sorry Misses DiPesto), Moonlight is about Mick St. John, a PI with vampire powers. But, unlike most vampires (at least all the ones I know), Mick uses his powers for good: he sinks his teeth into helping people. Stuck between the world of vampires and the world of mortals, Mick tries to balance what is and what could have been. Moonlight, which airs on Fridays at 9 on CBS, is sure to brighten up the dark reputation of the undead; please, hold the garlic.
