The "cigarette-smoking man" from the X-files is the mortuary guy on this series! The episode I caught was about the merging of conventional western medicine and eastern practices such as biofeedback, acupuncture, positive thinking, etc. It must be an early episode. I was actually intrigued to see where things would go, even though I was rather dismayed to learn that it was a PAX program, which in my experience puts out extremely sappy series. It looks like the show is worthy of a second viewing...if only to see what they are up to or trying to say. I like the fact that they seem to be advocating a multi-level approach to medicine as well as a more humanistic, holistic approach. With regard to cast, I caught a number of other recognizable actors on the screen and was pleased to see their familiar faces. Has the potential to be pretty sappy - but worth a second episode.
