“Eli Stone” is a mix of “Ally McBeal,” “Wonderfalls,” and “Boston Legal.” I love those shows, so full of idealism and whimsy, so, of course, I dig Eli. ABC had the good sense to give the latest Greg Belanti (I love him too) creation the plum 10 p.m. Thursday slot behind “Lost.,” and the debut episode won the time slot. Jonny Lee Miller, the British actor who was once married to Angelina Jolie, is the right guy to play the San Francisco lawyer who thinks he may be a prophet  Miller is surrounded by an impressive cast that includes Victor Garber (“Alias”), Loretta Devine (“Boston Public”), Natasha Henstridge (“Species”) and Tom Armandes (“Everwood”). And then there’s George Michael in an inspired vision. If you missed the debut, watch it on ABC.com.
