Smiley Show
18 November 2012 | by KmR_414See all my reviews

I titled the review Smiley Show because that's exactly what the show has a tendency to do, make me smiley at how goofy it can sometimes be.

I originally began watching Emily Owens M.D. primarily because she's Meryl Streep's daughter and then because it was something else to watch after all my 'First Line' shows were done for the week like Bones, Big Bang Theory, etc.

This show is not your Grey's Anatomy or any of the other drama heavy weights on right now. I read an interview with Mindy Kalings from The Mindy Show and Emily Owens reminds me a lot of what Kalings was trying to achieve with her show - awkward comedy, not afraid to show that women aren't always perfect, and that we have insecurities (realism such as in Girls).

The difference to me is that Emily Owens is endearing - both the character, the cast, and all the plot lines. It draws you in to its quirky humor and realistic not-too-over-the-top drama.

Additionally, I think Owens character is very well balanced. She brings out the brunt when she has to "a bunch of you have STDs!" but also knows when it's unnecessary such as not talking about how Cassandra choked in surgery. She's honest and I hope to see her stronger side grow throughout the series.

It's refreshingly different and I hope it is around for seasons to come!
