Your typical heartwarming drama series and the discovery of another beauty Melina Kanakaredes.
NBC has found a nice new hit drama as part of the Friday night lineup and it seems to have once again put NBC back as a major player among the networks. "Providence" a heart-to-heart drama filled with emotions and decisions for real- life situations has viewers feeling amazed. Based in Providence, Rhode Island is Dr. Sydney Hansen(Melina Kanakaredes) who after her mother's death who Kanakaredes character communicates with in flashback manner in every episode when advice is needed, Kanakaredes takes care of her younger sister and small infant along with caring for her stubborn brother and aging father now if that's not enough of a load then the duties as a top female physician should bring poor Sydney down, but never fear her strength and virtue she received from her dead mother journeys her on. NBC must have had the greatest talent scouts or beauty judges out and about their work sure paid off with the discovery of Melina Kanakaredes, I remember the very first episode of "Providence" I watched or perhaps it was the pilot or an advertisement in which a scene that Melina had stripped down to a blue bra and panties "all the oxygen was sucked out of me", she certainly is one of the world's most beautiful women a great discovery for NBC. Believe me you have nothing to lose on a Friday night "Providence" is a great show plus all male viewers and anyone who wants can admire the looks of Melina Kanakaredes.
