    Sure, the show will raise awareness of organ donation; but it is certainly not going to raise the profile of good TV drama. Casting and nuanced writing might have helped, but neither are in evidence here.

    Daniel Henney is the new handsomest man on TV and it's a pleasure to watch him walk the halls in scrubs. But even he can't make me believe what Three Rivers is selling. For that, I'd need a brain transplant.

    perhaps a segment of CBS' audience will enjoy the sedative-like effects of Three Rivers, which injects sincerity and competence back into the profession with such unabashed ease that it's possible to overlook that this is utter drivel.

It's too bad CBS pulled the plug on it so early on. Finally there was a medical drama on TV that revolved around actual medicine (not sex and scandals like other medical dramas), and had strong, evolving characters that the audience could empathize with. The writing could have been a bit better, but overall I think this show was really great. Full Review »
