It's a good thing to have a controversial and topical subject on TV, and even better if it's entertaining. So Kudos to Mary Kills People which deals with assisted suicide. The ER doctor played by Caroline Dhavernas does a marvelous job transmitting the mixed feelings when a physician considers such an enterprise. For some reason Dhavernas keeps getting medical roles ("Off the Map", "Hannibal") but the truth is she far too beautiful to be a physician – who would ever stop being sick if they got to have an exam from her?

My one criticism of the series, and it's a big one, is that every episode seems to want to have at least one botched job. That may help the entertainment value, but I don't think it accurately portrays the reality. One might be tempted to think that it's a black comedy, but the rest of the material is handled as reality.

Bottom line - it's great to have a show about this topic, but more realistic scripts would make it even more valuable.
