A Gifted Man: Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

A GIFTED MAN is a drama about a brilliant, charismatic surgeon whose life changes forever when his deceased ex-wife begins teaching him the meaning of life from the “hereafter.” Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson) is an exceptional doctor who lives a materialistic life of luxury thanks to his work-obsessed career and powerful and wealthy patients; however, Michael’s ordered world is rocked when his ex-wife, Anna (Jennifer Ehle), an idealistic free-clinic doctor and the love of his life, mysteriously appears to him. Michael’s off-beat sister, Christina (Julie Benz), a single mom to her teenaged son, Milo (Liam Aiken), is thrilled that Anna’s back in her brother’s life, even as an “illusion,” because Michael was always a better person with her. Curious about Michael’s sudden change in behavior is his efficient assistant, Rita (Margo Martindale). When Anna asks Michael to go to her clinic to help keep it running, he meets Autumn (Afton Williamson), a volunteer carrying on Anna’s work with the underprivileged. Touched by those in need and accepting of Anna’s compassionate “presence,” Michael’s attitude toward serving the rich and poor is turned upside down, and he begins to see that there’s room in his life for everyone. Academy Award nominee Susannah Grant (“Erin Brockovich”), Academy Award winner Jonathan Demme (“The Silence of the Lambs”), Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly and Neal Baer (“ER”) are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.

I've watched the first two episodes of this. For a show with Pablo Schreiber (Nick, The Wire), Margo Martindale and Julia Bendz, this show is pretty bad. I'm pretty sure if I were a minority or poor, I'd feel pretty condescended to. I'll give it another couple of weeks in hopes it gets better, but only because I love the cast.

    • Y&R The artwork and decor items from Devon's penthouse. Total lot should raise about 50 bucks.
    • The Chandler one is more iconic to me.  Great picks! The elevators with the classic font for the numbers would be great.  Would the C from Capwell Hotel have blood on it?  I didn’t watch SB, but it did fall and kill someone, correct?
    • Not to mention, Melody Thomas made some phenomenal Miss Piggy faces during Phyllis's rant.

    • What a lovely conversation with Hayley, and the surprise visit from Melanie and Mary Ellen was the cherry on top. Hayley has great energy.
