A man bothered by petty stuff and a selfimportant wife
29 October 2011 | by MdlndeHondSee all my reviews

It's a same ol' same ol' hospital drama, nothing new and this one very unrealistic on top of it. The mystical story doesn't contribute much to the plot either except being a gimmick. In the Pilot it all looked very promising but by episode 3 i can't find anything to keep watching it. The characters are bland and cliché with the depth and wisdom of a soap opera. The story line is nowhere exciting.

It's obvious where it's supposed to go: stubborn cold hearted rich MD at a private clinic gets turned around by the good hearted spirit of his ex wife who was a living saint. So far he's been running between two clinics (a rich and a poor - get is?) solving complicated medical issues without any trouble, while he gets nagged on by his ex wife. There is no depth anywhere and i couldn't care less about either of the characters. Just very boring. Very disappointing.
