Normally I don’t write reviews for shows that have just started. I like to give the actors a little time to get used to being their characters. Also, to see how the non-show runner writers will handle the characters. However, The Mob Doctor is such a crap shot on a Monday night at a relatively good time slot that I feel like I have to review it.
Fox had the chance to put a show in this time slot that would appeal to non-comedy and non-reality tv show watchers. Instead of finding show that was actually good, or moving one of their ratings winners to this time slot, they put in The Mob Doctor.
The writing for this show is what makes it difficult to watch. I like the concept, don’t get me wrong, but the fact that there are so many troops in every episode makes me think that the writers just do not care. If they do not care than why should I?
So what happened on Monday? Of course she has a fight with the other female attending because she does not want to use the little dead girl as a teaching activity. Of course the guy that was involved in the hit and run ended up being the guy that Grace has to take care of on the side. Oh and instead of treating the guy the right way the first time she lies and says he is okay. Hello, Hippocratic oath anyone?
This show could have been so much more interesting if instead of taking care of the Mob patients in the back of restaurants Grace actually had real doctor tools to work with. I mean they are the Mob, they have money. You would think they could at least slap a descent operating room for her together, but nope, not a chance.
Anyway, I am not giving a rating for this show because after Monday’s episode I will not be watching it. If it makes gets to air all of its already filmed episodes I will be shocked. Especially because it is on FOX and they get all trigger happy when ratings are not good.
