Dr. Gabriel Monroe (James Nesbitt, Murphy’s Law) is a neurosurgical genius with a quick wit and a heart to match his titanic ego. Following no rules but his own, Monroe infuriates colleagues and terrifies interns with his glib repartee and arrogant self-regard.
Pitting his formidable skills against high-risk medical emergencies is only one of Monroe’s challenges. He and his team must also navigate the toll that medicine takes on patients and doctors—especially when dealing with their personal lives. As slick as he is with a scalpel, Monroe struggles at home as a husband and father, and at work he clashes with brusque heart surgeon Dr. Jenny Bremner (Sarah Parish, The Pillars of the Earth).
With a dose of House’s dark humor and an infusion of humanity and warmth, Monroe is gripping medical drama at its best.

This series can't seem to figure out whether it wants to be serious or a dramedy or some type of medical soap opera; whatever it is, I don't like it and won't be viewing any other... Read morePublished on January 19, 2013 by BKR
