YMMV: Awake

For the TV show:

  • Crazy Awesome: If Britten is only imagining one reality, then his hallucinations do aid him in solving cases in both worlds.
  • Tear Jerker: Britten saying goodbye to Hannah and the red reality in the finale.

For the movie:

  • Critical Research Failure: If you have any knowledge of medicine, this film will insult it.
  • Funny Moments: After Clay's rib gets snapped during the surgery:
    Dr. Puttnam: Ooh, that's going to hurt in the morning. Sorry, Clay.
    Clay: (thinking) Yeah, you better be fucking sorry! Fucking asshole!
  • Nausea Fuel: The surgery itself - already shown in gruesome detail - is made ten times worse by the fact that Clay is still awake.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Would you want to watch this movie the night before any kind of surgery? Even a root canal?
    • The moments in which it slowly dawns on Clay that he's still aware of everything are absolutely terrifying.
  • Paranoia Fuel
  • The Woobie: Clay becomes one over the course of the film.
