  • Very good episode!

    This one's storyline was quite captivating. I saw the episode just now, but I had seen it a while back as well, and I still didn't quite remember how this one ended, which is the sign a show is producing great mystery!

    The storyline here was very unique, and it was full of suspense at various points, such as Megan helping save the guy's life. It was all very interesting and also developed Megna's character as well, as we delve further into her past problems with her career.

    All up, very good episode! Keep it up, guys! :)(moreless
  • Why no reviews?

    I know when I'm hooked on a show when I don't need to remind myself to watch it every week. I know that here in Mexico, right after White Collar, I tune in Body of Proof. I don't know what it is that Megan has that makes her different from other forensic women. I like her style and what I like about this episode is to see two strong women taking control and solving murders. The case about the hospital was very sad. Someone who wasn't supposed to die unfortunately died and all because of some old revenge caused by something who should be regulated in universities.

    Megan almost did a MacGyverism when she had to stop the bleeding, but she knew was she was doing and went for it after controlling herself.

    Can't wait for next week.moreless
