Review: Day Break

Day Break is a cop series that follows the adventures of a tough detective, Brett Hopper (Taye Diggs) who wakes up one morning next to his wife, has coffee and gets his newspaper, just like any other day. Except it is not a regular day; it is the day that Brett is arrested for murdering prosecutor Alberto Garza.

Brett has no idea about what happened, but as the murder weapon is found in his house, with his fingerprints on it, he is arrested. Once in prison, he is advised to plead guilty or his sister is going to be killed. In the meantime, his girlfriend is murdered in an attempt to intimidate Hopper into taking the blame for Alberto Garza death. Hopper is then drugged yet instead of waking up the next day in his cell he wakes up in his bed next to his girlfriend, and relives the previous day. Brett immediately tries to get rid of the murder weapon in his house and tries to escape the police. However, things donít work out; he is still caught by the police and his girlfriend still dies. His day ends on the same note as the previous one; he is once again threatened into taking the blame for the crime he is drugged and then he wakes up reliving the previous day.

Besides the obvious Groundhog Day style Sci Fi element, the series is full of action, conspiracy and mystery. Overall it is a fun action cop series fans will enjoy.


Right from the pilot the series looks captivating and well made; the actors are good, the plot is strong, and there are no fluff scenes. In each episode, the detective tries to make sense of it all, to unravel a conspiracy and all this while constantly dodging the police. This is a solid action mini series I recommend to all genre fans.

Review: Day Break

Day Break follows the story of Detective Brett Hopper played by Taye Diggs that after spend the night with his girlfriend, played by Moon Bloodgood, returns home and finds it devastated and his dog barking madly. Before even making sense of it all, police swarms into his house and drags him to prison on charges of murder. Soon new evidence will lead to the conclusion that the real killer is on the loose. And, as if this is not enough mystery, Hopper wakes up the next morning in the same situation that was on the day he was arrested. He tries as hard as he can to change the course of the day he weirdly has to relieve again and again. As today ends, there is no tomorrow for Hopper, and our character is trapped in a permanent terrifying state he can not escape.

It is a brilliant show because the intrigue is built cleverly and it is packed with generous amounts of mystery and suspense, as well as because of the excellent job actors in lead roles carry out. The action is fast paced; the topic is captivating even if nothing youíve never seen before. Day Break manages to look into the world of politics, justice as well as into the underworld of arms dealer, neo-Nazis, Latino drug gangs and so on. The common denominator of this mixed crowd is always money, corruption and viciousness in pursuing their interests.


As expected, Day Break follows the pattern of the famous series and only delivers details little by little to shed light gradually on the mystery. By the end, viewers have a somewhat clear idea of whatís happening in the series.
