25 September 2011 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

I was nicely surprised when I finished watching the first episode of Gifted Man. Even it is placed in medical context it is not like any of medical drama shows on TV. Many of them are so popular, and some of them are very good made, but they are all almost the same and are oriented only in character relations and melodramatics in everyday life.

So I don't watch them. If I would be medical professional I would probably watch them all. On the other hand everything that is different from conventional, and have a bit of mystery in it always attracts me. And that medical part here, looks serious and professional.

With that in mind I was happy to see what Gifted Man will tell me. I was not disappointed at all, at least with pilot. Not some masterpiece but overall, it is very good and even in medical context not like any well known medical show we know.

First we have very good actors in it, like it is Patrick Wilson and Julie Benz, and second, the spiritual world. I am interesting to see how they will develop this, maybe the hardest and questionable aspect. So it is not an easy task. It must be presented somehow believable. If they fail in in it the whole show will fall. For now the segment in dealing with what me missed through life was very good and it fits right.

I don't know much about Shaman's ritual, but I hope they present it in correct way.

So with first very good impression, I am happy to see where it will go, and I hope I will not be disappointed.
