Sneak Peek: CBS' new medical drama Three Rivers

by Bob Sassone, posted May 21st 2009 12:24PM
There seems to be a ton of new medical dramas on the fall schedules, including this new CBS show from Jericho producer Carol Barbee. I guess the only question is, can a medical show with such a specific premise (a hospital that specializes in transplants) do enough different stories throughout the season? Never mind - this one has Moonlight star Alex O'Loughlin!

The timing of this type of medical show is uncanny! My 27 yr. old daughter has been referred to the Pittsburgh hospital that does transplants. When she's strong enough she will be transported from Jersey to Pittsburgh for a small intestine transplant. On second thought, maybe it wouldn't be such a good idea for us to watch this

I'm looking at the casting, and I'm all I see are surgeons/surgical assistants. Where is the transplant anesthesiologist and anesthetists that make the surgery even possible? I'm afraid these characters may lead to a very one-dimesional perspective about what's involved with these surgeries.

I'm very worried about this show. Television does not have a very good track record when it comes to telling the story of Organ Donation and transplantation. "I know it's not true, but, it's better television" is a phrase heard on the House set and others. All that does is spread misconceptions about a very wonderful side of medicine.

The whole cast looks great. Good to see Kate Moennig breaking away from The L Word.

Do the networks (or viewers) know that it's possible to produce a TV program that is not about doctors, lawyers or cops?

The same ideas recycled again and again - isn't that what sitcoms are for?

Does he steal blood from the hospital? If he doesn't then I'm not watching. They should bring back moonlight. Three Rivers looks bland and boring. I'll still give it a chance.
