Back to the original reason I started this thread.
Three new late season shows started in the past month...
Ellen Pompeo .... Dr. Meredith Grey
Patrick Dempsey .... Dr. Derek Shepherd
James Pickens Jr. .... Dr. Richard Webber
T.R. Knight .... Dr. George O'Malley
Sandra Oh .... Dr. Christina Yang
Katherine Heigl .... Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens
Chandra Wilson .... Dr. Miranda Bailey
Isaiah Washington .... Dr. Preston Burke
About Surgical Interns learning the ropes in a Seattle Hospital.
I thought this was going to be a kinder genter version of ER... and in a way it is... but it's got a bit of Scrubs mixed in. I was surprised how often you get a laugh out of this... sure it starts with a question and ends in a life lesson format... but the bits in between are very good.
As you can see it has a great cast....
Ellen Pompeo (I remember her best as Mitch's Girlfriend in Old School) is exceedingly cute... so is Katherine Heigl... Patrick Dempsey is very funny and well cast in his role... Sandra Oh is fittingly bitchy.
Most of the supporting cast you have seen before and they have great acting chops...
So far I think it's going to be a good show. I really like it.
Timothy Daly .... Harlan Judd
Garcelle Beauvais .... Nora Gage (as Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon)
A.J. Langer .... Meg Bardo
Laura Leighton .... Leslie Town
Eric Mabius .... Jeff McCann
Rick Worthy .... Chris Didion
Natalie Zea .... Trish Agermeyer
About a expensive, high tech, and practically bankrupt private dectective agency in LA.
Tim Daly has always been good... and this show (so far) has been pretty decent. The supporting cast is mostly relative unknowns... with a few faces you will recognize... Nifty gadgets galore... and funny hijinks and capers ensue... worth taking a look.
Ron Eldard .... Detective Jim Dunbar
Marisol Nichols .... Detective Karen Bettancourt
Rena Sofer .... Christie Dunbar
Reno Wilson .... Detective Tom Selway
Frank Grillo .... Detective Marty Russo
Michael Gaston .... Lt. Gary Fisk
About a cop blinded in the line of duty, who manages to get his job back.
If it wasn't for Ron Eldard and Rena Sofer I don't think I would have started watching this. First of all... how far can they stretch this gimmick? But... I thought the same thing about 24.
So far the stories have been decent... you believe Eldard for the most part... some good conflicts with the characters to drive the story along... but who knows how long it will last?
Worth a look if you like the genra and the cast... otherwise you can will find better cop shows elsewhere.
