Okay, I have to say it….I somewhat enjoyed this show. As much as I hate HATE HATE doctor dramas set in the typical hospital setting, this show is stomachable (I may have made that word up, so what?)
Emily is sort of that girl we all are or either are on the inside. Her inner dialogue is very similar to that of JD on Scrubs (not quite AS funny as his though) and she is AWKWARD, yet good at her job.
I don’t give a flying poop in space about any of the patients on the show, but the relationships and dynamics being built are already miles ahead of Beauty and the Beast‘s pathetic attempt at a crime drama show, so I can’t help but prefer this one to that. I will even go as far as to say the characters are more interesting than Hart of Dixie which already has an entire season under its belt.
I am actually very distraught that I ended up enjoying this show for the most part. The reason for that being that it completely switched places with Beauty and the Beast, which I had the highest of hopes for over the summer. I also know this show is going to be cancelled purely for lack of promotion and believability.
Oh well, until then, I’ll watch and laugh with Mamie Gumner.
For the 8:00 hour, I recommend
Pretty Little Liars (The Halloween Special)
For the 8:00 hour, for ratings purposes
Hart of Dixie
For the 9:00 hour, I recommend
Happy Endings at 9 and Don’t Trust the B in Apt 23 at 9:30
For the 9:00 hour, for ratings purposes
Emily Owens M.D.
For the 10:00 hour, I recommend (also for ratings purposes)
Raising Hope and New Girl! Both now have 24 episodes to their seasons
Also, Beauty and the Beast (which I recently dropped) and Emily Owens M.D. have both received an additional 3 episodes for some reason….HA!
Dear God, this looks just terrible….wtf is wrong with The CW for putting 2 doctor shows on in the SAME night???? Seriously???
Okay, I overreacted. The show is certainly NOT horrendous and is different enough from Hart of Dixie to be acceptable, but I still wonder why The CW decided to have 2 doctor shows. I think that creates a lot of distension and a general battle between the two shows. Just don’t come crying to me when Hart of Dixie or this show gets cancelled soon! Just saying.
I like Emily’s inner voice. She’s funny, sweet and very relatable. I also love that she isn’t a beauty queen and she is even just a little bit crazy/paranoid like the rest of us girls! Hence, relatable. While I think this show will either be a hit or miss, it’s okay in my book…..for now.
3/5 stars…I’d even go as far to say 2.5/5 for now just because I’m worried about its ratings.
