Show Summary

Everwood tells the story of a widower, Dr Andy Brown, who leaves his successful job as a top Manhattan neurosurgeon to live in a small Colorado town, bringing his 9-year-old daughter Delia and 15-year-old son Ephram with him. He chooses the town of Everwood because his late wife had told him of her emotional attachment to it. Many of the story lines deal with the conflicts of adjusting to a new setting, as well as getting along with new people. Dr. Brown, simply called Andy most of the time, at first finds some animosity towards Dr. Harold Abbott, with whom his professional opinions differ. However, Dr. Abbott's cranky demeanor and Andy's passive, cheerful attitude prove to mesh well and the two begin a friendly rivalry. Ephram continually struggles with his emerging adolescence, his studies as a classical pianist, and his crush on Amy Abbott, Dr. Abbott's daughter. As the series progresses, so do the love stories. Amy and Ephram become a couple in Season 3 but experience problems along the way. Meanwhile, sparks fly between Andy and his neighbour, Nina. From executive producers Greg Berlanti, Mickey Liddell and Rina Mimoun. Produced by Berlanti/Liddell Productions, Everwood Utah, Inc. in association with and distributed by Warner Bros. Television Productions Inc.moreless

  • The Ultimate Movie Review! -- @tss5078

    A few years ago, I was watching a very forgettable movie on cable, so forgettable in fact, that I can't even remember the name of it. This film did however have a tremendous teen actor, who I took note of, because of the charisma and intensity that he brought to his role. I thought this kid could one day be a big star and took note of his name, Gregory Smith. Since then I have become a huge Gregory Smith fan, seeing most of his films and now his TV show, Everwood. The story of Everwood begins when world famous neurosurgeon, Dr. Andrew Brown (Treat Williams), loses his wife in a car accident. Distraught, Brown decides to leave his prestigious job and move his family from New York City to the small town of Everwood, Colorado, where he opens up a free medical clinic. Brown was a brilliant surgeon, but really doesn't have a clue about how to be a father. His children, in particular his son Ephram (Gregory Smith), does not make the transition easy on him. To be honest, this isn't the kind of show that I usually go for and I was only planning on watching a couple of episodes. A couple of episodes quickly turned into much more as this infectious group of people really drew me into their lives and touched me in a way that a TV show never has. Part of me could really relate to their personal struggles and attempts at overcoming the adversity they faced, if nothing else, It was empowering and inspirational. Veteran actor, Treat Williams, leads a truly terrific cast, playing the man whose turned his life upside down in order to get closer to his children. Dr. Brown is supposed to be the one who has all the answers, at the hospital, that may be true, but at home, it's a big learning curve for him. The dynamic between this quirky celebrity doctor and his introverted, yet artistic outcast son, is really the heart of this show. Gregory Smith is off the charts good as young Ephram Brown, who possesses many of the same qualities as his father. Those qualities are usually at odds with the qualities of his mother, causing him to be a bit impulsive and quick to speak his mind. Ephram quickly falls for the most popular girl in school, Amy Abbott (Emily Van Camp), who is the daughter of Everwood's first family. Amy clearly has feeling for Ephram, but a shocking secret that keeps her from getting close to him. Van Camp, now the star of ABC's Revenge, is asked to wear many hats, sometimes she's sweet and innocent, while at other times she's immature and irritating. but no matter the mood, she's always at the top of her game, really letting you feel, what Amy is feeling. Amy's father is Dr. Harold Abbott (Tom Amandes) who was the only doctor in Everwood, until Dr. Brown showed up. Abbott is arrogant, egocentric, and absolutely hysterical. Amandes brings some much needed comic relief to the show and his interactions with the other members of the cast are priceless. If it wasn't for Everwood being a WB show, Tom Amandes would have several Emmy Awards by now, because he really is that good. Everwood is a family drama that is at times hard to watch, because you will be deeply affected by these characters and at some point will be able to personally relate to what their going through. It pulls at the heart strings, that's for sure, but seeing that adversities faced by these characters and how they were able to over come them is really an inspiration. I said earlier that this is the kind of show that I don't usually watch, but it should be for the way it made me think and the way it made me feel.moreless

    To me, this show is truly a masterpiece, a work of art and I don't think that no other show will touch me as much as everwood did. I started watching Everwood when I, like Dr. Brown, had lost my partner. Mine didn't die, but nevertheless, I could relate to what he was going through. Because of this, and the fact that I also think that I'm just like Ephram made me attached to the show on a level I can't describe. To me, this was as good as it gets. I will always return to Everwood, I have seen every episode 6 times or more and I can never be fed up. I don't care that I know what is going to happen, I just like to have an hour every now and then when I visit everwood and forget everything else.



    You probably wont like everwood as much as I do, but if you can see anything of what I see in this show, not only will you have a fantastic time watching it, you will gain a true genuine friend that will make you a better person.moreless

    (re-posting since my old account access became lost)



    This was a really good show. In my previous review I indicated all that need to be said. Upon reconsideration I found 2 main flaws.



    First, Linda Abbott. The whole plot around her was weak. Her background was weak. Her character was weak. She was merely spliced into the show and just as quickly taken away without any indication. The impetuous direction for her to run away during an episode and coincidentally meeting Dr. Brown at the train station is far fetched and barely plausible for an acceptable parting. There was no emotion, no sense of "character loss".



    Second, the Madison fiasco escalation in S3E17 was absolutely unnecessary. It stood as a major impetus for creating a fourth season, but overall merely stood to classically destroy the joyful moment in the lives of everyone in contact with Ephram. There wasn't even the slightest delay in time of happiness before everything was ripped away and a false sense of hope and guilt-ridden joy overtook the minds of everyone around the young protagonist. Though it did stand to set a new extreme for Ephram's raging defunct mannerisms. It attempted to highlight personalities he shared with his father but overall created a sense of false disdain and scorn in 1 person, changing essentially the whole dynamic of the Brown family. Things worked out in the very end, especially the final episode, but the audience never had a chance to enjoy and live the final stability that settled into the air over a quick 4-5 episodes that had its own jagged story line.



    Great show, but it had some major flaws trumping even soap opera scandals. In the end, aside form all the abrupt stories plaguing its final season just like many shows before it, Everwood was a good watch. In a grand sense, it revels the microcosm of a small life that each of us have at some level.moreless
