Genre: Hour-long medical/inspirational drama
Premise: Talented, emotionally detached doctor starts to (in the words of Haley Joel Osment) “see dead people.” Make that just one dead person – a past lady love who tries to help him become a better person in his practice of medicine.
Behind-the-Scenes: Creator Susannah Grant wrote Erin Brockovich.
The Good: The cast (Patrick Wilson, Dexter’s Julie Benz, recent Emmy winner Margo Martindale). Doesn’t really make any glaring missteps.
The Bad: Doesn’t really entertain much either. This is a solemn, slow-paced drama. It’s meant to inspire, and perhaps the doc’s do-good deeds in future episodes will prove appealing to some, but the pilot is not promising. That solid cast is wasted.
Will It Last?: The Friday CBS audience is one I’ll never understand. Uh, maybe?
Add A Series Pass?: Unless you count yourself a devoted fan of The Ghost Whisperer or Touched By An Angel, No.
