TV show description:
Emily Owens (Mamie Gummer) thought that she was done with the world of high school. After all, she graduated years ago and has now finished medical school as well. Unfortunately, her years as a geeky girl have come back to haunt her.

Emily is beginning an internship at Denver Memorial Hospital, a facility where her med-school crush Will Collins (Justin Hartley) is also an interning. Unfortunately, her high school nemesis, gorgeous and popular Cassandra Kopelson (Aja Naomi King), is also interning at Denver Memorial as well.

Another intern, Tyra Dupre (Kelly McCreary), warns Emily that the cliques at the hospital are all too familiar: the jocks have become orthopedic surgeons; the mean girls are in plastic surgery; and the rebels are in the ER. Tyra has her own awkward place as “the principal’s kid” since her father, Doctor Tim Dupre (Harry Lennix), is the chief resident. Tyra latches onto Emily as a new friend, and immediately begins confiding in her. Nothing is too personal to share with Emily — Tyra is a lesbian, that she hasn’t come out to her father yet and she’s interested in dating a certain nurse.

Emily soon realizes that the long-standing rivalry she had with Cassandra back in high school is only going to grow. Both Emily and Cassandra are competing to impress brilliant Doctor Gina Bandari (Necar Zadegan), a world-famous cardiothoracic surgeon who’s been an inspiration and role model to both of them for years.

While Emily and Cassandra vie for Doctor Bandari’s approval, they’re also competing for Will’s attention. Handsome Will and Emily were friends in medical school but Emily was always hoping for more. Will has made it clear that he likes their relationship the way it is — as just friends. Emily struggles to convince herself that being friends with Will is enough, but it bothers her to see Will and Cassandra even talking with one another.

Meanwhile, Emily is also getting to know Doctor Micah Barnes (Michael Rady), a nerdy yet smart and handsome resident. Micah is faced with serious medical issues within his own family, and Emily’s compassion proves an invaluable help. Impressed with Emily’s medical skills and warm bedside manner, Micah brings her in on a delicate surgery and talks her through the procedure, boosting her confidence and bringing them closer — both professionally and personally.

With the long hours, the heavy workload, and personal drama filling her first days as an intern, Emily still fees like she’s the new geeky kid all over again. It’s just as awkward as high school. Somehow however, she’s sure that she can make it.

Series Finale

Episode #13 — “Emily and… the Leap”
Emily’s decision about starting a relationship with Micah becomes even more complicated when Will hears about it and begins to feel jealous. Emily and Tyra treat an unruly woman, but after learning of her home hoarding situation, Emily wonders if the woman’s personality changes may be caused by her many cats. Now that Cassandra and Will have broken up, Cassandra’s strictly professional behavior distracts Will and causes him to misdiagnose their patient. Meanwhile, Micah’s sister comes to town after finding out the truth about their mother.
First aired: February 5, 2013

Please do not cancel this show. It is well worth keeping. It has a very refreshing twist to all other medical shows.

loved this show…….sadly, I soooooooo can relate to the main character…..there was someone out there struggling with the day to day, even if it was a TV character, that made me feel normal…….this was a great show….great characters, chemistry between the actors…..really was looking forward to a next season

I felt it was a good show for all ages as she was a good role model. She had doubts and fears yet carried on mainly with dignity and grace, yet if she made a bad decision she reflected and worked to make it right because it was the right thing to do…that’s a part of tv life that’s not usually portrayed. A show that was finally about people and their day to day struggles and interactions instead of who’s sleeping with who. Thanks for giving people a chance to voice their opinion… hopefully it will give the show another chance.

I loved Emily Owens MD. I couldn’t wait for the enxt episode. Please bring it back for another season. Why can you not see a potentially great show. Why do you cancel great shows and leave the crappy ones. Remember “Raymond” was almost cancelled after its first season and turned out to be a hit. Give people a chance to get to know the show and give Emily Owens another chance.

I was looking forward to more of this show as it is a bit different from other doc. shows, characters are quirky and the relationships between them adds drama and comedy to the show. I think the show should be renewed and a whole slew of the reality shows axed instead.
