What idiot took this series off the air? Was it taken because it had a level of intelligence that the usual sitcom lacks? Or was it because the actors were realistically cast and did a great job in their roles? Or perhaps that the creators of this series had reality as their goal? Again, what idiot took this series off if the air?

I like the settings' contrasts: the "haves" of the Holt clinic in a bright, shiny building with every advantage and the "have nots" clinica setting, a store front where basic tools are rarely available, patients come in with acute care problems and the clinica must try to help them. This is a timely example of how health care works (or doesn't) in this country. I have worked in a poverty based, inner city clinic and find the situation fairly realistic: gun threat is not unheard of but I would say doing any kind of surgery in such a setting is fairly rare. Patrick Wilson pulls off a tricky part well: he is the arrogant and rare doctor, a neurosurgeon, who performs all kinds of tricky maneuvers with medical cases that are unusual. He is almost too reticent about his talent except he is so darn confident and self-assured, this calm crankiness seems appropriate. His support person, such a wonderful actress whose name I cannot at the moment recall, doesn't take any guff, reminds him what he is supposed to be doing and when and the mutual respect is evident. The one odd conceit about this program is the presence of his dead but re-appearing wife (played by a very different looking Jennifer Ehle of "Pride and Prejudice") who tries to bring Dr. Holt back into a more feeling humanity. So far, I think it is working albeit very slowly. I especially enjoyed this episode because of how unlikely it would be but how well it walks a fine line between trauma and emotion without becoming melodramatic. Kudos!

Bought the first and only season with Amazon Instant Prime. I liked the show when it was on TV, but now watching the videos, I realized how much I missed. It was such a fascinating program. The details are amazing. During the surgical scenes, it really looks like Dr. Holt (Patrick Wilson) is operating. The acting is first rate. If you missed this show when it was on or if you want to remember how good it was, the videos are for you. You will enjoy the show, though, like me, you'll wish there were more than 16 episodes to find out what happens to these characters.

I watched the pilot for A Gifted man and thought it was good. Then I continued to watch each episode got better and more interesting. I'm in love with all the characters in the show. This is some of the best writing in series that I've seen in along time. I found out the show was cancelled by CBS I was sad, mad and in disbelief that they would cancel such a truely good and inspiring Tv show. I hope CBS rethinks cancelling the show and brings it back or some other station picks it up. Their are many people that would love to see the show come back just read the reviews. Debra S.

The break down in character and story continuity began in the last episode with Dr's Holt and Kate finally kissing. One would expect a cogent follow up in this episode. Instead, there is the unlikely week long avoidance of Michael to discuss the situation with Kate who is in an equally confusing pre-divorce condition with her alternately angry then desirous husband. On top of this is buried the transplanted heart of Michael's ex-wife/ghost in a clinica patient ending in a fiery conclusion. The emotions emanating from Michael after this terrible incident in which the patient dies, along with Anna's heart, are never resolved, only eluded to, and the ending feels confused, convoluted and very unsatisfactory. I really like this series and feel its final episode deserved much, much better.

It's a plot, I tell you! The plot to dumb down America! I am upset. Truly. Emotions vented, I gotta rate this show 5 Plus Plus stars. It ended with a small cliff hanger, and perhaps one day, if fans would only mobilize, this cliff hanger would lend to a made for TV movie. Alas though so far I don't see anything of the sort ...
Yes, it is an intelligent series. Well written, produced, acted. Each episode has something new to teach us, as well as make us contemplate reality as we are taught to perceive, and equally important, medical science and the finality of death.
The fact that Dr Michael Holt is a neuro surgeon and episode after episode the storyline dealt with down-to-earth brain problems was especially touching for me, due to the fact that my husband had survived for five years after a stage 5-catastrophe level brain aneurysm due to an avm: arteriovenus malformation; long story short, I had defied the "unplug him, he is gone" advice of neuro specialists and as I've said before, my husband lived on for five more years as a man who could see, talk, think, sing ...
For skeptics, the premise of the story is 'fantastic', of course, or better said, based on a fantasy. The nononsense neuro surgeon, who practices nononsense medicine, is often visited by his not-very-long dead ex-wife. Throughout the 16 episodes we watch him trying to deal with her random appearances in a logical manner, the scientist in him refusing to give in to the mysteries of the paranormal.
The conclusion makes me suspect that the producers might have hoped to go on for another season and that the choice was taken from them due to less than stellar ratings.
