I recently came across this new show called “Monday Mornings”. It’s about the staff at an elite hospital, Chelsea General which is located in Portland, Oregon and is based on a novel written by Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The show particularly focuses on the weekly morbidity and mortality conferences that occur every week. These conferences are where doctor reports are reviewed and the poorest results (ex. death of a patient) are analyzed. The conference is headed by Dr. Harding Hooten, the strict Chief of Staff of the hospital, played by Alfred Molina. I’m a big fan of Alfred Molina, I found him to be one of the only good things in Law and Order: Los Angeles. He does particularly well in playing Hooten, who is quite a complex character. Hooten is a dedicated Chief of Staff, who never hesitates to demolish any doctor he thinks has made a mistake (including friends of his). However, he can be extremely compassionate with patients and their family members. He shaves his head to make a young leukaemia patient laugh.
All in all, its the characters that make this show great in my opinion. A few of my favs include Dr. “El Gato” Villanueva played by the amazing Ving Rhames. Gato as he is called by his coworkers is the Chief of Trauma at the hospital, and is the good cop to Hooten’s bad cop. I’ve only mentioned two but the rest of the characters are as complex and interesting. This is definitely a show I would recommend.
I just want to say to my followers if any, my sincerest apologies of the lack of posts on my blog!! I have had a very busy month, but now I am back :). I recently got back from Nesw York City, which was awesome!! Anywhoo, I saw some broadway plays which reviews of will be posted shortly.Among these will be a comparison of both Breakfast at Tiffany’s the movie and the play. I have also ventured into a new genre of tv, the dramatic medical shows. More on that later though. Well I’m going to leave u with a little clip to end this post with: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgk-Gu-4MX8 (pay attention to 0.11 s)
