Full disclosure: I've got a soft spot for mediocre medical dramas. I still watch Grey's Anatomy. I have every intention of watching all of Emily Owens, M.D. I sat through every episode of both Hawthorne and Off the Map. And I watched ER from its great start until its bitter end. So with all that being said, The Mob Doctor is so awful that watching the pilot twice (for reviewing purposes) was excruciating for me. This new series is so poorly written and developed that I'm praying for a swift cancellation so that I can block it from my mind and everyone involved can move on to better things. I really like Jordana Spiro (from My Boys) and adore Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights), so I figured that at the very least, my enjoyment of two of the leads would keep me intrigued for a few episodes. It won't. Here's why:
Great news: Glee can now have an epically boring episode if it wants.
Ugly Betty seems to be taking over today, but a few gems managed to shine through, like an awesomely new graphic-novel-turned-series about zombies as well as the greenlight for lots of scripted shows from an unexpected network.
