TV show description:
Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson) is a gifted and very successful NY surgeon. He’s wrapped up in his materialistic world and he only takes care of clients who can afford him, the powerful and the wealthy. Though Michael has many things, he doesn’t exactly have much of a bedside manner. He’s also at that point in his life when he’s wondering if he made the right choices.

He bumps into his ex-wife Anna (Jennifer Ehle), a kind and beautiful physician — the love of his life — who he divorced a decade earlier. He lights up in spite of himself and the two have dinner together.

Michael has an offbeat sister, Christina (Julie Benz), who’s trying to keep things together for her teenage son, Milo (Liam Aiken). She’s thrilled that Michael has gotten together with Anna, saying, “When you were with her, is the only time you weren’t a total jerk.”

TV show supportMichael later learns that, some time ago, Anna had been hit by an automobile and killed. She’s left behind a Bronx clinic that provides medical care to hundreds of people who couldn’t afford care otherwise. She appears to Michael again and even Michael’s efficient and overworked assistant, Rita (Margo Martindale), notices a change in him.

Anna asks him to visit the clinic to share her computer’s password with the staff. Visiting the clinic is like going to a different world for the upscale doctor. While there, Michael meets Autumn (Afton Williamson), a volunteer carrying on Anna’s work with the underprivileged. Seeing her compassion in action, 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.

Series Finale

Episode 16 — In Case of Heart Failure
While attending an awards banquet, Michael reconnects with his old friend Gene – a photographer who recently found love while abroad in India. When Gene collapses on stage, Michael takes him back to Holt for treatment. As Michael struggles to find the source of Gene’s worsening fever, his new girlfriend butts heads with his overbearing but well-meaning mother as both women attempt to comfort the man they love.

At the clinic, a young woman with a broken toe reveals that her life was saved by a heart transplant six months ago. While tracking down her medical records, Kate learns something remarkable: the heart used to belong to Anna Paul. When the broken bone causes Fat Embolism Syndrome, a potentially fatal disease, it’s up to Michael to rush the patient back to Holt Neuro in order to save her life.
First aired: March 2, 2012.

This was another really decent show that did not make it because it wasn’t filthy enough!
This was good!
Replaced by another reality show! You can have prime time because of this. Who needs another reality show. Does anyone really watch these? Or are they just really cheap to make?

This is one of the bright spots on network TV. I hope that the network gives it more time. The juvenile nature along with the mass cancellations are one of the primary reasons that I turned my back on watching network shows, and it’s shows like A Gifted Man that have brought me back for a second look.
