  1. After one hour, we not only care about the patients - but care quite a bit about the doctors.

    Like on House, we go inside the body, zooming from nerve endings to the mind's exotic landscape, where surreal images convey mystery maladies. If only 3 LBS were as provocative.

    This show could use some brain surgery itself.

    It's hard to escape the sense we're watching the bastard child of the union between "Shark" and "House."
  5. You'll see nothing that hasn't been done on other networks and with higher skill, energy and imagination.
  6. Who wants to watch a less funny, vaguely cuddlier House impersonator?

    There's perverse fun to be had in watching "3 lbs." Count the groans as you spot yet another trite piece of formula.
