One of the most intriguing new shows this season has to be NBC's Awake, starring Jason Isaacs, and now we've got a clip of the first 7:40 minutes of the new midseason series.

The show, which premieres March 1 at 10 p.m. ET, follows Detective Michael Britten (Isaacs), who lives in two different realities after a car accident. In one reality, his wife (Laura Allen) survived the accident, and in the other his son (Dylan Minnette) did. Unwilling to let either reality go, he's faced with the complex challenge of living in two different worlds with two different home lives, two different therapists telling him which world is real, and two different partners on the police force that he's working with to solve different cases.

Talk about a mind-bender!

The clip begins with a shocker and concludes with an even bigger emotional shocker that sets up the main character's dilemma. Check out the opening of Awake and tell us what you think.

Is it worthy?
