Media Update 2/17/22

Rosewood

I came to the opinion while watching Our Kind of People that I really like Morris Chestnut but I am not a fan of a lot of his career. When I found out that he was on a procedural, I definitely wanted to check it out. Chestnut plays a private pathologist with a state-of-the-art laboratory run as a family business. He works closely with the Miami Police Department but is independent of them. Chestnut is electric in the role of an eternally optimistic yet troubled doctor who I cannot help but like. His sister, played by Gabrielle Dennis, works in the lab and she is always testing her older brother professionally and personally. Anna Konkle plays the sister’s girlfriend and is an accomplished forensics expert herself. Jaina Lee Ortiz plays a tough detective who often gets paired with Rosewood. She is a mix of Miami and New York City attitudes. The show has a really good feel to it and the plot is just as interesting as the cool tech they use to solve crimes. I recommend this show.

Body of Proof

This show is about a former neurosurgeon who loses her career after going through a car accident. She reboots her career as a medical examiner. She is abrasive and hyper-focused on her job and being right but has a troubled personal life. Dana Delany is really great in the role since she is easy to dislike early on but then she hits you with a moment where you feel for her character. Nicholas Bishop plays her partner, a medicolegal investigator (kind of like a hospital cop) who is a former cop. Jeri Ryan plays her tough but fair boss who has to be concerned with budgets, reputation, and helping people. She is backed up by two loveable character actors in Windell Middlebrooks and Geoffrey Arend. The cops are pretty great too in that they cannot really rein in the medical examiners. I recommend this show.

Forever

Dr. Henry Morgan has a problem. He is immortal in that every time he dies, he reappears in a body of water. His immortality has granted him a lot of experience which he uses as a medical examiner in New York City. He studies death to find a way to finally die himself but also to help people in the meantime. Ioan Gruffudd is very charming in the role, a sort of immortal Sherlock Holmes (but way more affable). Alana de la Garza plays the police detective who becomes entangled with Morgan. She is inquisitive and clever in her own right and not just a passenger along for the ride. Judd Hirsch plays an older man who is the only one who knows Henry’s secret and he is just as loveable as ever. I recommend this show.

    OOOO You found Forever!!! I really enjoyed it even though it was Highlander Lite. I think they could have built an interesting universe if they’d gotten a second season.
