New from FOX and directed by Ken Olin (who directed and produced hits such as The West Wing, Felicity, Judging Amy, Freaks and Geeks, Thirtysomething, and the popular but short-lived EZ Streets). and starring Jordana Spiro (My boys, Harry's Law) comes a Monday night offering which is most definitely not your grand-mother's Marcus Welby or your Dad's ER or even our recently departed and much beloved House, MD! This show is a whole new take on a (M)edical (D)rama which happens to have as much (M)achetes and (D)ynamite as it does (M)edicine and (D)octors.
Seems an Odd combination for sure but it's just a normal day in the life of Dr. Grace Devlin, a talented cardiothoracic surgery resident in a prominent Chicago hospital who just happens to owe a big debt to local mob boss, "Constatine". (played very convincingly by William Forsythe).
The show has been met with a mixture of reviews ranging from okay, mediocre to down-right awful with a collective score of 42/100 from Metacritic which is a shame because it really is a good show.
