Before Sunrise (Television Thoughts: Four In The Morning, Fridays on CBC)

four_in_the_morningSean John says that best thing happen at 2 a.m. So what happens at ‘Four In The Morning?’  Thus is teh concept of the new CBC series of the same name. I guess if we are to be more philosophical about it, it is at four a.m. when things come a little bit more to light, when we have to acknowledge and deal with some of the consequences of what we did at 2 a.m.  This show is described as such:

FOUR IN THE MORNING is an unconventional comedy spiked with a touch of magical realism. The show follows four friends in their twenties as they navigate life at the unpredictable, emotional, but illuminative hour of 4 a.m. Dealing with themes of life and death, love and heartbreak, friendship and betrayal, it’s a series about self-discovery, disappointment, and clawing after dreams that always feel out of reach.  

More millennial characters for me to hate on, right? The pilot episode did not really do much for anyone here, but it’s second episode really won me over. The set of four friends had to deal with ‘Day Kids,’ or these human beings who age their whole lifetime in a day (I think does really exist, right? They stayed with these two people in an evening, and it gave the characters to be less self-absorbed than usual. One of the kids wanted a first kiss from one of the guys, and even though he was straight, he obliged. It also gave the characters introspection, as one of them is pregnant and is still grasping with whatever decision she wants to make regarding her pregnancy. I found that I started to really get engrossed, and now will have to put the next episodes on the watch list. And who said nothign good comes from Canada? (That was a joke, of course)
