I had never seen an episode of "Everwood" before, but the premise intrigued me. A renowned brain surgeon moving to the middle of nowhere after his wife dies to establish new ties, build a new family, and perhaps forget past failures. Treat Williams is excellent as Dr. Andy Brown, a talented surgeon who treats his patients better than his own children. Andy is neglectful, but not intentionally. His absence from his children's lives is maybe an admission that he has not clue how to relate to them. Watching him bond reluctantly with his hostile son is one of the many pleasures of this delicate, intelligently-written show.

Dr. Brown is an affable man, yet flawed, which makes him instantly recognizable. His struggles to properly raise his son and daughter form the core of "Everwood". Williams anchors the show with his vivid, tortured protrayal of a man with internal demons hidden by a calm facade. He's the type of man one would enjoy inviting to a poker game, a basketball tournament, or a beer in the local bar. His son Ephram, played by the amazing Gregory Smith, is a gifted pianist who clashes with his father over issues of desertion and emotional detachment. Watching them spar and yell and eventually come to a greater understanding of each other is an almost religious experience. Ephram challenges his father to see if he really cares. and his testing brings the family close to the verge of an emotional meltdown. He's the type of adolescent who is fiercely loyal to his friends, sees through the transparency of phony peers, and is uncompromising in his demands for basic decency. The daughter, Delia, is a sweet kid who just wants to fit in at school, but has a tough time adjusting to the almost alien climate of Everwood.

I came across this series by accident and rented the first disc not expecting much. I was very, very surprised at the quality of this series. The acting from all the players is excellent. The photography stunning. And the various threads are all interesting and well done. I have now watched all 6 discs of the first season and the quality did not deteriorate over the entire first season.

My only disappointment was that when I went looking for the second season, it wasn't available. Apparently, WB hasn't put out any but the first season. What are they waiting for???

As the overall quality of mainstream movies declines, television seems to have become the refuge for some of the very best drama. Everwood is a prime example of this trend. This series has a superior cast served by excellent writing. It does occasionally deal with "the issues" that we have all seen addressed in other family shows many times before. But do not let that fool you. In very subtle ways, this show revolutionizes the genre. For example, focusing on a single father is, after all, something that has not often been done before outside of comedies. Also, for some reason, single dads on TV tend to have daughters exclusively. By contrast, this single dad's relationship with his son is a central theme here. Locating the action in a small Colorado town (most of the locations are actually in Utah I believe) is also a very clever choice. It is refreshing to see TV characters in bleak weather wearing clothes that are not meant to be stylish but warm. And as other reviewers have pointed out, the locations are beautiful and highlighted by the show's unique photography. The storylines are captivating and the depth of characterization is really quite exceptional. As is often the case with dramas, the dialogue is sometimes so deep that you might be tempted to think "No-one talks like that." Maybe. But the feelings behind the words are real and it is impossible not to identify with them. I am not the crying type but I have shed some tears watching Everwood. Because I relate to it and I think most people can. But there is humor in Everwood as well. Very clever humor at that. This series is a gem. Now if they could just release Season 2! What's the hold-up?

Back in the fall of 2002 I saw the promo for a new show called "Everwood". The storyline intrigued me. I usually try to pick one new show per year to watch and stay with. I chose "Everwood" for that year. I was fed up with endless and frenetic crime, lawyer,reality, and medical shows which now grace (and saturate) our airwaves. This seemed different. The show intrigued me from the beginning. Shortly into the series I became aware that the writers of this show were doing something very clever, but I could not put my finger on it. About mid way through the series I figured it out on my way to work. The writers had worked a subtle Rockwell motif into the story. It is most explicitly seen in the opening credits during the first season. The shots of the cast are not only done in Rockwell's style but are also seen in quintessential Rockwellian settings. A clever twist- take a hip, yet disfunctional, New York family of the 21st century and plunk it down in "fly-over country" - the small town America of Norman Rockwell. The motif was again alluded to, when, in a later episode, I noticed a copy of Rockwell's "Country Doctor" hanging on the wall of the doctor's den. The point was then made quite explicit in the episode "Miracle of Everwood" when the journalist makes reference to the picture as he attempts to justify the inaccurate story he is going to publish. I was pleased to discover that in the commentary track Berlanti talks about the motif in the opening credits and how hard and expensive it was to do. Details and texture such as this can add so much to the storytelling. Furthermore, some of the editing was of a very high quality and emulated a lot of techniques used in cinema: graphic matches, matches on action etc. Whoever chose the songs also did a very good job.Read more ›
