Editorial Reviews

Henry (Christian Slater) is a middle-class efficiency expert living a humdrum life in the suburbs with his wife, kids, dog, and a minivan. Edward (Slater) is an operative who speaks 13 languages, runs a four-minute mile, and is trained to kill. The one thing Henry and Edward have in common is they share the same body. But when the carefully constructed wall between them breaks down, these polar opposites are thrust into unfamiliar territory where each man is dangerously out of his element. Also starring Alfre Woodard (Desperate Housewives), Mike O’Malley (Yes Dear), Mädchen Amick (Gossip Girl) and Taylor Lautner (Twilight), plus powerful guest stars such as James Cromwell (LA Confidential).

4.0 out of 5 stars Only 380 minutes? March 28, 2009
Format:DVD
380 minutes of running time means these discs include only the original 9 episodes that already aired on television. Even these producers didn't have the kahonies to produce a conclusion to satisfy their diehard fans whom one would assume would gobble up this set at a chance to get some answers. If even they don't have faith in their own product, then I will keep my $20 (+shipping) and just watch the episodes I have recorded on my Apple TV. I'm really disappointed in NBC for canceling it in the first place, and in the show's producers for not producing a conclusion to include in the DVD. Shame on all of you!

I loved this show, but this DVD set is a real disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring Back My Own Worst Enemy March 27, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It was good seeing Christian Slater on-screen again. I looked forward to this show every week. There was a little suspense with each show as to when and under what situation that mild-mannered Henry would appear when hitman Edward would be in the middle of doing what he does. Definitely should still be on the air. Reminds me of when New York Undercover was taken off the air.

Some of us DO enjoy non-silly programming and prefer shows of substance. Can we start a petition to bring it back?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Heartbreaking cancellation by NETWORK IDIOTS February 25, 2009
By Puppluv
Format:DVD
One of only a few decent shows by the network in YEARS and YEARS and it's cancelled. I don't get it. Great show, great acting, wierd premise but acted in a believable way. I don't usually like that wacko government is evil etc story lines but this was a great show!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two People - One Body April 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Christian Slater has had a knack through his career of landing in too many so-so movies. It is nice to see at this stage of his career he turns in one of his best performances. The supporting cast is good with Mike O'Malley being especially interesting. The budget seems to be decent.

Like the somewhat similar British series Jekyll the most interesting aspect of the series is the conflict between two apparently separate people inhabiting the same body. Edward, the Bond-like spy, is ruthless, and Henry, the family man, has never handled a gun. They do not seem to care much for each other but as they only have one body they find they must work together to stay alive. Everything was fine until Henry, previously unaware of Edward, discovers Edward's existance in the first episode. That they now switch back and forth at any moment is the tale.

The last episode appeared to be working its way to a conclusion, but in the final two minutes they throw a curve. The show is good, worth watching on its own, but it would be nice to see a second season.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Fault March 10, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well, I guess it's my fault this show was cancelled. Because I found it to be so daringly original and liked it so much.... Which nearly always seems to be the kiss of death for shows that have that impact on me, going back to Nowhere Man, Due South, Keene Eddie, and more recently The Black Donnellys.
I spose I'd be much happier if I could get into something less challenging, like Jerry Springer or those "reality" shows maybe.
But I just don't seem to have the right sensibilty.

Too bad, cuz in some ways it's a curse, really.

Hey, maybe if I offered my head up to be kicked by a horse.

3.0 out of 5 stars more corporate GREED! May 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I LOVE this series. I HATE the way the "suits" let this end. 5 stars for the series... ZERO stars for the "SUITS"! It was such a disappointment to see the episodes again and see the story heat up, only to be kicked in the teeth by corporate greed at the end... This isn't even a cliffhanger... this is just waking up in the middle of a dream and never knowing the whole story...

4.0 out of 5 stars I Would Have Bought this IF April 21, 2009
By Ed Carr
Format:DVD
Yes, a great show canceled. I had hoped for new shows that were not aired or some conclusion or promises of a movie, but no. I will keep watching the 9 episodes that I recorded.

2.0 out of 5 stars *** Don't Bother *** April 25, 2010
Format:DVD
I'll start by saying I didn't buy this, but I did watch every episode as they broadcast. Although the show was great, if you buy it, you'll be greatly disappointed to find, as many NBC series go, there was no ending to it. It is one that they left completely unanswered. Read the other reviews, it is very disappointing. I remember when they announced canceling this series after a whole 5 episodes, then went ahead and aired the ones they had already filmed.
