Megan resumes her career as a medical examiner determined to solve the puzzle of who or what killed the victims. Megan's instincts are sharp, but she's developed a reputation for graying the lines of where her job ends and where the police department's begins.
I really enjoyed this show. I like Dana Delany and Megan Hunt, the character she plays. It also shows Philadelphia in a very interesting way with images that look like fine art photographs or paintings (in my opinion) used as segues between scenes. The basic premise is that someone dies and Megan Hunt, a brilliant neurosurgeon who can no longer be a surgeon due to a condition that affects her ability to perform surgery correctly, examines the body and uses clues from the body to track down the killer with the help of her trusty, but frequently prickly team. The show also explores her personal life as a mother and divorcee and a semi-estranged daughter from her equally strong-willed mother who is a judge. It's not a perfect show but it works for me. (I'm also a big Jeri Ryan fan, and even though it could be argued that the characters are a bit cliche, I still enjoy them.) I was sorry to see it go, but am glad I can watch it now on DVD.
Dr. Megan Hunt (Dana Delany) is a Medical Examiner who speaks for the dead. She says the bodies tell her everything she needs to know. Megan is funny, smart, and feisty. I love all the cast and purchased this to watch all the episodes again. The price was unbelievably low and the quality of the case and DVDs was exceptional. I'm very pleased with this purchase. Megan is someone you want on your side...well, unless that means you have to be dead first. You know what I mean. Watch it. You won't be disappointed.
Dana Delany (Megan Hunt) is a medical examiner with a tough exterior and yet manages to be vulnerable in a way that is believable. Her character at times makes you want to slap her and at others hug her - to me a good show has believable characters that you can relate to and root for. While there are a few moments where the show drags a bit at times, it's cast and story lines are interesting and worthwhile.
I caught this show during the second season and had to figure out what the first season was about. This show is amazing and the plots getting better every episode. I love the way that she solves the crimes just of doing an autopsy on the bodies while her co-workers go out and look for more evidence at the crime scenes. I never miss an episode!
This show is great, even if it is another show depicting a woman coronar. I love the negative interplay of personalities and the unfolding of Dana Delaney and her hard core protectiveness. My only objection are some of the conclusions that they come to which come from inaccuracies. One right off the bat was determining someone's handedness. And that was because of the wallet being in the left hand back pocket, determining a left handed person. That would be wrong, as a left handed person would have their wallet in their right hand pocket and a right handed person would have their wallet in their left pocket. Although, that is subject to error with those that are ambidextrous and in that case it would boil down to preference and not handedness.
