Pilot



I wasn't planning on watching this, but I had an hour to burn with all the other shows caught up on and decided to give this one a shot. I actually liked it. Much better than I thought it would be. I'm still trying to keep track of all the characters in line and whatnot. This has the potential to be something pretty good, even the sleeper hit of the season. I will be sticking with it for the time being. Just gotta see how I'm gonna work this into an already overcrowded TV viewing schedule.

Honestly, the premise of this sounds... just over the top.

It's actually grounded. Without ruining anything, we have a successful Doctor who has a brother that gets mixed up with the wrong people (Mafia) and they were going to kill him. Doctor steps in to save him at any cost and will do anything to protect him, thus becoming the Mob Doctor. It's a juggling act now because she still has her legit job of working at a Hospital, saving lives and then has to do work for the 'Family'. It's actually pretty cool. Check it out.

Thanks but no. I tried getting back into medical drama with my wife with Grey's Anatomy... and sometimes it's just to tough to watch.

Also crime, court room, police drama are completely off my radar.

Family Secrets



Wasn't sure how far the show would delve into the Mob life, but after this episode, they are clearly going down that Goodfellas street and that's a good thing for me. Not sure how far they can push the envelope, but I don't think it's going be too watered down. Not as violent, but certainly enough to get its point across. The Brother is just dumb. His sister saves his ass by becoming their On-Call Doctor and what does he do? He goes and ask for a job working for the. Sheesh!!

Protect and Serve



Great episode that really straddles the moral line and what you think to be the moral line. So, what do you do when a little girl you are in charge of taking care of dies do to a drunk hit and run accident and then you are asked to care for the man responsible for her death? That's whats at stake when Constantine asked Grace to do. What makes the situation worse is that the drunk is also the Captain of the Police. F*ck the poilce!

Great twist at the end, revealing that Moretti is alive and well and that he along with Franco are making a play to take him out. This is getting good and they are really ramping up the Mafia style story arcs.

Change of Heart



This is getting really good. I think the show is named incorrectly. This has more to do with Mafia lifestyle and less to do with being an actual Doctor. Sure, it's got it's typical hospital scenes and medical stuff, but it's so smally compared to the bigger picture of the Mob. I liked the guest stars on this one too. You have Timothy Busfield as a shady Politician and you have Shohreh Aghdashloo (24) as a Heart Surgeon and Jurnee Smollett (Friday Night Lights) as a Call-Girl. Great episode.

Legacy



I liked both stories that anchored this episode. The father that was never around, but returns to give his dying daughter his heart was good. I liked that Grace was being put in the position of having to make a decision about killing one patient to save another. I knew she wouldn't, but I also saw the ending coming a mile away. The other story involving the kids that their muscle spasm was very interesting. The only reason why this episode only gets 4 Stars is because they never gave us a follow up on their surgery to let us know how they turned out.
