Interesting Pilot Episode
29 October 2015 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

I acquired the made for TV 90 minute pilot episode in Mill Creek's Drive-in 50-pack collection. I found the pilot episode to be fairly interesting for a TV show pilot. I found myself drawn into the story of St. Clair's private life and his medical or public life can be intense at times. It's a good pilot episode.

Louis Gossett Jr. plays Mac St. Clair. He is a brilliant but extremely moody cardiologist who is having a lot of problems in his personal life due to being dedicated to his career. St. Clair finds himself in a quarrel his chief surgeon who seems incompetent. It's up to St. Clair to smooth things over in his career and private life.

3/10
