I briefly wondered if I found Fox’s reincarnation detective drama "Past Life" so silly because I don’t believe in past lives. Then I remembered that I also don’t believe that a tropical island could heal a paralyzed man’s spine or travel in time and space, yet I love "Lost." And that the idea of a man having a computer in his brain seems goofy to me, yet "Chuck" is one of my favorite shows.You can read the full "Past Life" review here. Suffice it to say, this one won't be a fixture around here.
More to the point, I don’t believe in any kind of psychic phenomena, yet I’ve often found "Medium" to be an effective, well-made show.
So, no, I don’t dislike "Past Life" because I’m a skeptic, but because it’s not very good.
