Decent , but nevertheless I couldn't like it too much
23 July 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

After watching the 4th episode today, I said to myself: why can't I like this show? It has likable and charismatic characters. It has a powerful and refreshing approach to it, by showing the effects of brain deceases on human lives. The dialogs are well-written, witty and filled with hilarious one-liners. But despite all my praise, I constantly had the feeling that something was missing and I can't really put my finger on what it might be. Maybe Dr Hanson can find the answer somewhere in my neurological system?! I'm at a serious loss here.

Maybe it has something to do with the format being too crystal clear. We have Dr Hanson, the cynical surgeon representing the ratio, and Dr Seger, the empathic surgeon representing the feeling. In every episode their method of approaching patients is significantly different, but in the end they must admit that they both are right in their thinking. By YOUR powers combined! No real surprises anywhere. The other characters are also too crisp to really ignite any real fondness for them. Charming, yes, but at the same time very dull and predictable. It'd be a much more powerful show if the writers either chose to make its main characters morally less transparent ( like in Nip/Tuck ) or by choosing for a more over-the-top style (like in Grey's anatomy ). I didn't need Dr Hanson after all...and neither did CBS apparently.
