There was a show called “Rewind”, I only remember the start of the first episode where there was a protest of some sort going outside a building and the protagonist of the show had “something going on” with the main organizer of the protest, the girl who seemed to be in charge, the protagonist guy was Asian. Then a blond white guy rocks up and tries sweet talking the girl protester, who is just not interested, into organizing some talent scout type people to be at his next basketball game so he can win another award (can’t remember what the award was). She tells him to piss off, Asian dude goes I don’t know what the big deal is with him he already has 3 of those awards; she says something about how it’s all to do with retirement money and he’s looking to finish his career after this season. This all happens during the day. Then it’s night time and Asian dude and a black guy are standing on the rooftop bar of the same building the protest was outside of and they’re attacked by guys in hoods with machetes. The fight is brutal, black guy is thrown off the building and killed (of course, I mean the black guy always dies right?) and Asian guy has his fingers of his right hand chopped off, and then he falls backwards off the building. Cos he’s Asian my mind makes him do something cool so he’s hanging onto the roof of the building by just his leg (his calf is on top of the building and he’s tensing his hamstring to keep this position) and can’t scramble up because he has no fingers to grip the roof. Hooded guy slices across his leg and Asian guy can’t hold on anymore so he falls. He dies while the ambulance is on the way as it’s taking ages to get there. Then there’s a partial rewind, Asian dude flies back up to the roof, and the roof scene starts back up again just before hooded guy slices Asian dudes leg and Asian dude falls off. He’s aware of this he’s like what just happened how am I here again but the scene plays out just as it just did but as soon as Asian dude falls off the ambulance arrives as it was still on it’s way, time keeps moving forward for the rest of the world. The rewind only happened to him and hooded guys and it’s was only the last 5 minutes. He survives as the ambulance gets to him before he dies, so the next episode of the show is going to be him finding out who hooded guys were and why they attacked. Something to do with the protest and the girl.
