flashy medical show
In Pittsburgh, Three Rivers is the best transplant hospital. Dr. Andy Yablonski (Alex O'Loughlin) is the leader of the transplant team. Dr. Miranda Foster (Katherine Moennig) has daddy issues who is a legend at the hospital. Dr. David Lee (Daniel Henney) is the ladies' man. Ryan Abbott (Christopher J. Hanke) is the new assistant transplant coordinator. Dr. Sophia Jordan (Alfre Woodard) is the head of the department. Pam Acosta (Justina Machado) is Andy's assistant. Dr. Lisa Reed (Amber Clayton) is also a member of the team.
This CBS medical show didn't last long and really didn't have a chance to develop their characters. O'Loughlin plays a very similar note over and over again. He's the only one that I do remember from the cast. The most memorable aspect that I remember from its first airing is the overuse of CGI in a desperate attempt to modernize the show ER which went off the air the previous season. It's a lot of high-tech flash and noise which distracts from the characters themselves. The premise has potential but it is a more specific medical procedural which limits the scope of the stories being told.
