why did she?... wait, what?!
12 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

I tried to give this show a chance, but I just couldn't manage it. I could almost forgive her snooping around at the death of her dead relative, but then she (inexplicably) follows her roommate around as she does her work as a doctor, and then (inexplicably) starts snooping around the lives of the random people that are admitted to the hospital. Naturally, the random hospital patient whose private life she injected herself into is linked in some way to the death that she had previously nosed into. At that point, I basically checked out. It was just too sloppy and contrived. Apparently some people like it, or perhaps it improves a lot in subsequent episodes. I thought it was awful, and I generally like all of the genres that it falls into (woman-lead, period drama, mystery).
