Great cast and show!!!
20 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The drama and cast are excellent. I am looking forward to CBC renewing this show. It surpasses the other medical dramas and shows like Bachelor, etc.

I put this one on my Friday night agenda so I don't forget to catch it the following week! I actually sit in front of the TV before the show starts so as not to miss a minute. I am not related to the actors or crew. The first episode captured me and has never let me go.

A Gifted Man is an intelligent, original, well-acted, meaningful series with twists and turns, excitement and emotion. DO NOT let this one pass. CBS should most definitely give it a couple of seasons to grow even better.
