@oshiekins I completely agree. Emily VanCamp is excellent! I loved the role she played on Revenge and that's what prompted me to begin watching The Resident. There's a chemistry that she brings that I can't quite articulate. Not sure if it's attitude, drama, poise or something else but it makes the show.

I love the show. The Conrad guy - so creepy at first but grown on me. I like the intensity and close up camera angles, and up shots. I like the other players Nic is great, but they have ZERO sexual chemistry together. I like her she's great, so is he, but this is not a match for sex. Great friends, OK. But she looks like she would eat him for breakfast. They read well together, I ust don't believe they're a couple very much. I don't believe it, there's something off what that sexual relationship. Same thing happened on ER, George CLonney and that blonde woman - didn't work. Same here. I guess they're on contract though, so the writers will have to make us believe it. DOn't get me wrong they're both great in their roles, but there is no way that's a passionate relationship.
The show was great first season. even despite the stereotype formula.
Rich guy has estranged son, rich guy is mysterious and evil/good we can't tell. They will have a long long protracted reunion lasting as many episodes as the writers want. Not bad, not a new idea but believable.

Bruce Greenwood is fantastic. The Melina woman is good, she could come back.

THe Danish guy is OK, he fits the show. The side players are good.

However in the second season they've already JUMPED the shark. Jane Leaves is so caricature, she is too big, too pratfall, not nuanced for this show. She's like a farce character trying to fit into a serious medical drama.
Also the Anthony doctor Raptor guy, omg. Are they that desperate for their Preston Burke? He's so fake and unbelievable and such a bad actor it's a real shame they've messed up. They needed a bad guy evil arrogant but brilliant doctor who falls in love with the bad girl ( Mina), it all works, Except that his acting and his big ness is way way out of sync with the show He and Jane Leaves belong on the same show. Just not this show. They're both sitcom people and it really really shows. They are both moderate bad actors, good for clunky one liners and hallmark moments ( Cosby show, Frasier) and that's about it.
Jumped the shark there.
Also the Halloween show, the Germ???These were kind of lame attempts at doing some sort of theme-in-a-show. The writers should have had at least two seasons of good material lined up. The last two shows were weak sauce. Really weak.

That said, I'm addicted due to Greenwood, Conrad ( however weird and unrealistic his acting is, it's very intense and I like it), Mina when she doesn't try to be emotional - these actors are worth sticking around for.
I hope they don't do more rubber premature baby episodes. Those really ruin the vibe.
