TV show description:
Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller) seems to have it all. He’s a successful attorney in San Francisco and the fiance to beautiful Taylor Wethersby (Natasha Henstridge); the daughter of the senior partner of his firm, Jordan Wethersby (Victor Garber).

Eli works hard to help the firm’s wealthy corporate clients become even richer, benefiting both himself and his future father-in-law. But one evening, Eli’s future becomes hazy when rockstar George Michael appears in his living room, singing his trademark song “Faith.”

This hallucination is the first of many and Eli turns to his physician and brother Nathan (Matt Letscher) and acupuncturist Dr. Chen (James Saito) for answers. Nathan delivers the news that Eli is suffering from a brain aneurysm and his visions may be connected. But Dr. Chen believes that Eli’s hallucinations may have more of a spiritual meaning, that he may be a prophet of God. Eli begins to revaluate is life and comes to the realization that he needs to make changes.

He starts by taking on cases of the very victims of the corporate clients that his law firm once represented. But these changes come with consequences and Eli must struggle to hold onto both his job and his fiancé. Also trying to endure and understand Eli’s strange behavior is his sassy assistant, Patti Dellacroix (Loretta Devine), and young associate, Maggie Dekker (Julie Gonzalo).

Please bring back Eli Stone. We see so much bad stuff. God needs to be seen for who He is. I was deeply inspired by the show. Bring it back for the sake of many who might see and be saved.

DISAPPOINTED VIEWER!!!!! October 10, 2009 at 12:48 pm

WHY do the networks change the day and time of a program viewers like. It’s almost as if they want it to fail! I for one get really frustrated and irate when I am all set to watch ELI STONE and it’s no longer on in the time slot I always watched. Then only to find it has been canceled! The show was very different and inspirational! PLEASE bring it back!

I have been waiting patiently for it to come back on for the season and thought I would just check. I really like the story and the cast is fantastic. I am really sorry to see it go. One of the best on TV. Now we are stuck with big brother, the biggest looser, and other reality shows.

Eli Stone was an outstanding show with a very good story line and message. It is too bad that it ended or was canceled by the network probably because there wasn’t enough sex or violence. Most of the shows on television aren’t worth watching. Eli Stone was an exception to the rule and it is a shame that it will no longer be aired.

Please resurrect Eli!!

I don’t watch television because it’s so much drivel, because it discourages thinking. Then this WONDERFUL series comes along that is thought-provoking and inspirational — and what do they do? Cancelling this excellent show was stupid.

This was a great show! It was one of the most creative shows I had seen in a long time. Where has television gone that something so creative gets dumped to follow around random people with a camera. Bring back real not “reality” television.

Terrifble decision to cancel this series. This is the equivalent of the big car makers continuing to make the same decisions that keeps them wondering what they are doing wrong. I just don’t understand it. Please reconsider or sell rights to one of the cable networks/stations. Eli Stone should have a new life!
