Water" review by Suzanne
Normally I love all science fiction, but this show is really
weird. I watched a few episodes, and I really still don't
know what's going on. I guess they like it that way, but to
me, it's kind of irriating. Since the show is about dreams,
you don't always know what's real or when they're dreaming.
They should make it more hazy and dreamlike when they're
dreaming. Dreams are not sharp and focused like reality.
Premieres Thursday October 13 at 10/9c on USA Network
Anyway, the show is about (I think) how some people are
connected by their recurring dreams, and some people are
able to tap into other people's dreams with their brains.
But it's also about some kind of shadowy conspiracy that's
killing people and has something to do with Topeka (The
capital of Kansas? I have no idea if that's the Topeka it's
talking about or not).
Lizzie Brocheré plays Tess, a
woman that thinks she had a baby, even though no one can
confirm it (did she never take any photos of herself
pregnant or have a baby shower? WTF?). Tess's job is to spot
fashion trends, and it's clear that she might be a little
bit psychic. She keeps dreaming about having the baby
and having it taken away, and about a little blond-haired
boy. David Ajala plays Burton, who works for an
investment bank called The Firm, fixing their problems.
After he has a date with a woman he knows (they're broken
up) and they go to bed, she is kidnapped by some mysterious
men, who knock him unconscious. He searches for her but can
find no trace of her, and he's very suspicious about some
people who work at The Firm that have been acting weird.
Burton is very good at finding things out. Will Yun Lee
plays Take, a detective, who starts investigating some
bizarre murders. Also, he keeps having strange dreams about
his mother when she was younger (she's catatonic) and also
sees that same blond boy. These are the three main
I only recognize a few actors, including
Revolution's Zak Orth as a Bill-Gates-type of guy that
thinks that people can share information via their dreams
the way they do now with computers.
After watching 4
episodes, it seems like one of those shows, like "Lost,"
where you don't really know what's happening. I think they
might be trying to make it like "The Matrix," but it doesn't
have nearly as much action or adventure as either of those
shows. It's a bit slow-moving. I can't imagine that
you could really make a fast-paced show about dreams,
though, so therein lies the problem.
I'm not saying
it's a bad show, even though it's a bit slow and weird.
It's got a lot of interesting parts, and I really like the
characters in it. It's up to you to decide whether you want
to keep watching to see what's behind all of this dreaming
I believe they showed the first episode this
week, but the rest of the series debuts October 13.
Short Summary: A mind-bending drama, FALLING
WATER is the story of three unrelated people,
who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts
of a single common dream. Each of them is on a
mysterious and highly personal quest — one is searching
for his missing girlfriend, one is searching for a lost
child, one is looking to cure his catatonic mother — and
it is the clues found in their collective dream that
come to guide them. The deeper they dig,
though, the more they come to realize that their
missions touch on stakes that are much larger than their
individual agendas. That the visions found in their
common dream just might hold the key to the fate of the

the story of three unrelated people each motivated by
different factors – a woman searching for her son, a man
searching for his lover, a son trying to heal his
mother. As their stories unfold, they realize they are
all dreaming separate parts of a single common dream.
Which raises the question, if they can alter the course
of their dreams – and as a result their own lives – can
they do so to the lives of those around them?
delves into questions that society has always thought of
when asked about the dreaming world: “What if the events
in our dreams are trying to tell us something?” and
“What happens with a person allows their dreams to
influence their own reality?”

behind “The Walking Dead” and “Brotherhood,” executive
producers Gale Anne Hurd and Blake Masters look to
answer those questions. Led by cast members Lizzie

desire. The series is produced by Universal Cable
