A Gifted Man Delivers, So Far.
9 October 2011 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

After viewing the third episode, these are my thoughts: I really quite like this show. It has a major Broadway star (Raul Esparza) in a supporting role and he's excellent (that's just a side note - thank you show runners). The premise is so much better than Ghost Whisperer, whose spirituality I found, at best, pretty saccharine. I did however, like the relationship between Melissa and Jim. You can't do much better than Jennifer Ehle as Dr. Holt's dead wife. Patrick Wilson is such a beautiful man and talented actor that I'm totally buying into his narcissistic Neurosurgeon character, who has enough restraint to not go after every woman he sees, and a good amount of decency left as a man and a doctor to still care about every patient, not just the rich. That inner struggle is what will keep the show interesting (and that people keep catching him talking to thin air is very amusing. He has a lot to learn about how to keep that on the down-low). So it's walking a fine line right now. He needs to always be somewhat torn, struggling with his sense of privilege, or it will turn into Dr. Michael Holt, Social Worker.

I sort of feel that his situation is like the Rolling Stones cover of You Can't Always Get What You Want (But if you try sometime, you just might find You get what you need). There seems to be a spiritual force involved that is trying to make him more balanced, to feel on a deeper level than exulting in his art as a surgeon (what we saw in the premiere episode was pretty cold and contained, but he has thawed a bit in each episode).

I like this show enough to stick with it and gave it a solid 7 out of 10 because it has room to grow.
