Luck of the Draw (#1.13)
6 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dr. Lewis has mainly trouble for not having enough self esteem and stand up to Dr. Kayson. Her and Dr. Greene also have a conflict. A very good story, I like how they have some tension between the doctors although I of course hope it will have a happy end.

Dr. Benton also has a pretty sad story as his mother may need to go to a nursing home bu doesn't want to. seems like a pretty unresolvable situation.

A very intense scene between Dr. Ross and the guy who is tired of his son. So emotional, it is very sad yet one feels very empathetic with him. Very well done.

It is nice to see a new medical student, lets see how Carter deals with that. In this episode it was already pretty funny with the prank they played on him. The patients in this episode were also funnier than usually. The guy with colors. This one was actually pretty complex, with the severity of his problem and how he responded to life. The really fun one was the guy who kept on provoking people and then beaten for it.

And was interesting to recognize a guest star. Kirsten Davis in her pre- Sex and the city days.
