I've recently learned of & watched a new show that I want to make sure other people know about: Emily Owens, M.D. I heard about it months ago on Fresh Air & set my DVR to record it. I had the entire season recorded, but hadn't watched it yet. Until I was home sick last week. Y'all, I watched the whole series in like two days. It's so good! I want everyone to watch it.
If you recognize that face above, it's because she's Meryl Streep's daughter, Mamie Gummer. Emily Owens, M.D. is described as a medical drama, but when I think medical drama, I think E.R. This is more like a romantic comedy that takes place in a hospital where sometimes something 90% serious happens, sometimes.
It's on The CW & airs Tuesday nights at 8:00pm. Sadly, like every TV show I like (Friday Night Lights, Political Animals), it's already been cancelled. But The CW is airing the remainder of the 13 episodes. The finale airs on February 5th.
Here's an extended promo. It's 5 minutes long, but I promise if you watch the promo, you'll want to watch the show:
You can watch the 5 most recent episodes on The CW's website. You can also watch the entire series for free on Hulu.
Go watch this show!
