  • A pleasant surprise

    I didn't have much hope for this show; I dislike more medical shows than I like and the reviews were generally mediocre. And honestly, this is not a show that breaks new ground or has an edge or any of that stuff I so like in television.

    But you know what, I just kind of liked it. The lead has a breezy, awkward, charm, and I like the way she is insecure, not in that typical "not sure about whether she can make it as a doctor" way you get in shows about interns but rather in that "unpopular girl in high school who still isn't over it" way (in fact, it is really when she has to go into doctor mode that the insecurity slips away).

    Halfway through this first episode I was thinking, this is probably below my quality threshold and I don't think I'll watch it again, but by the finale I was just rather charmed by the whole experience. Yes, it's kind of dumb, rather predictable, and completely unoriginal, but somehow none of that bothers me much. I like it. So far.
