Crossing Jordan


Jill Hennessy returns to series television starring as Boston coroner -- Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh: a sexy, brilliant and fearless Boston medical examiner with a checkered career and a penchant for going beyond the call of duty to investigate crimes.

After striking out in Los Angeles, the headstrong Jordan returns to her Boston hometown and her former job with the Massachusetts State Coroner's Office, where she reunites with her ex-cop father, Max, who's still haunted by the unsolved murder of his wife, Jordan's mother. She gains a measure of support from her erratic boss, Dr. Garret Macy - who has his own personal issues; a newly arrived and confident colleague, Dr. Trey Sanders; forensic entomologist Dr. Mahesh "Bug", forensic technician Nigel Townsend and grief counselor Lili Lebowski.

In the second season comes Elaine Dunchamps working in the medical examiners office as a medical examiner. The team also works often with detective Woodrow "Woody" Hoyt. Also medical examiner Peter Winslow joins the team during season two.

This is one of the greatest medical drama has been produced and was supported by thousands of fans – CROSSING JORDAN. I love this show for being decent and clean. Unlike any shows today that are pure of lust and you can’t let your children watch. I have so much respect for this show from the storyline, producers and crews and of course to the whole talented casts. This is a very heartwarming TV series and Jill Hennessey is the best actress for me during that time. I’m a bit surprised that http://www.ultimatedvdseries.com/product.php?productid=3264182&cat=0&page=1 has a good preservation of this outstanding TV series. I bought a DVD boxset of this show from them and I must say that the quality is absolutely amazing and I’m still surprised how did this company preserved and produced this kind of pretty excellent copy. Crossing Jordan never failed to give excellent drama throughout its 6 years in television and for those who missed this one, you still have time left to watch and I assure you, you won’t regret it! Superb drama! Read more
