I hope they bring it back...
3 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This TV show had me hooked from the series premiere.

Its smart writing and excellent acting speaks to both neuroscience and philosophy.

It was a pleasure watching the only three episodes aired because each time I would walk away at the end and think of the philosophical issues brought up as well as remember the medical terms used.

I'm once again hooked on psychology and I have 3Lbs to thank.

Stanley Tucci shines in his portrayal of Dr. Hanson. The writers cleverly gauged the audience's reception to an exaggerated arrogance of the character and toned it down some notches in the ensuing episodes to reflect a little bit of humanity while still preserving his "cold science" attitude. I already miss the prospect of seeing this character grow and develop throughout a season.

Mark Feuerstein's Dr. Jonathan Singer is an immediately likable character who fits the part to a tee. He's a good counter balance to Dr.Hanson which keeps their professional chemistry interesting.

Indira Varma as Dr. Adrianne Holland is exquisite. This Swedish-Indian beauty has finally been given the chance to shine and she delivered. Her British charm speckled with Indian beauty creates the perfect sexual ambiance that I suspect would eventually capture Dr. Singer if the series were allowed to continue.

3lbs was cancelled due to poor ratings, however many successful series begin slowly. Hopefully this is only a hiatus and 3lbs is allowed to make a return and given a chance to build an audience.

The writing, storyline, plot and acting is brilliant and has the potential to be a hit series. I'm crossing my fingers that it is either recognized by CBS as such or picked up by another media outlet in the very near future.
