TV Picks: 'Forever,' 'The Affair,' 'Rudolph'

"Forever" — I was initially unconvinced by this police procedural featuring New York Medical Examiner Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd), 200-year-old Brit who, for mysterious reasons, can neither die nor age.

But the appealing presences of Gruffudd and the always wonderful Judd Hirsch as Abe, Henry's adopted (and mortal) son, kept me coming back, and now I'm legitimately hooked. Especially since the addition of "Torchwood's" Burn Gorman, here playing Lewis Farber, a Bellvue psychiatrist who was just last week revealed to be Henry's fellow, but very evil, immortal.

Their adversarial relationship will no doubt help shape future episodes though...
