Emily Owens MD (TV Pick of the Week)

Thursday, November 8, 2012

Emily Owens MD is a teen-show grown up and, so far, I like it.  A cross between Grey's Anatomy and Scrubs.  The show seems fun, yet  I hope this positive review isn't premature since I've only seen two episodes so far.

Emily Owens (Mammie Gummer aka Meryl Streep's daughter) plays a recent med school graduate starting her internship at a hospital in Colorado.  Other characters include: the guy she has a crush on, her former HS nemesis, a famous surgeon the interns aspire to work with, the chief's daughter who's also a first year intern and a friendly resident.

The show follows a typical situational format, new medical cases each week with a few story lines for the characters.  

Honestly, I'm skeptical that this show will last.  I really liked the last Mammie Gummer show Off the Map which only lasted a half season, but had a more interesting premise than this.  I don't see the audience other than females in their 20s, but I'll  Shariously enjoy it while it does.
