    Brilliant acting by Patrick Wilson, Jenifer Ehle, Julia Benz and Margo Martindale, plus beautiful cinematography make this sound and look like a wonderful film. Just hope the concept does not turn hokum.

    Gripping show with A+ acting. Very high quality filming that is so easy to watch. The stories draw the viewer in, the characters are totally believable, and the end of the episode leaves you wanting more. I hope this wonderful show will find its audience and that CBS will keep it around. There aren't many high quality dramas on TV anymore. Love, love, love this show!

    This is one of those medical shows which actually have more to it. It touches up on ghosts which create a bit of fantasy. It's great that way it great not to have it all be so technical all the time. It's going to be a real shame if there isn't a season 2.

    The problem is not the supernatural, it's the sanctimony.

    OK, OK, A Gifted Man, is not as bad as all that [Friendly-ghost mothers-in-law? Friendly-ghost proctologists? Friendly-ghost telephone solicitors?]. But it's not good, either.

    It's all a bit edgier than you might imagine, and I'll be giving this another look--though it's probably not going to keep me home on Fridays.
