The Mob Doctor

The Mob Doctor

For most physicians, the Hippocratic oath is sacred. But for one Chicago doctor, who is indebted to the mafia, saving lives isn’t her only concern. "THE MOB DOCTOR" is a fast-paced medical drama focusing on a young female surgeon caught between two worlds as she juggles her promising medical career with her family’s debt to Chicago’s Southside mob.

DR. GRACE DEVLIN (Jordana Spiro) is a top resident at Chicago’s Roosevelt Medical Center. Smart and self-assured, she’s heralded as one of the country’s most promising young surgeons. But family ties keep her glued to her Southside roots. To pay off her brother’s life-threatening gambling debt, she makes a deal with the devil and agrees to work “off book” for the mafia men she once despised.

At the hospital, Grace must deal with emotionally compelling cases – a young woman in need of a heart transplant, a family decimated by a hit-and-run driver, the mass chaos in the wake of an ‘L’ train collision. But in her other vastly different world, she must juggle an onslaught of mob-related demands, including operating in illegal backrooms, treating hit men hiding from the law, performing emergency surgery on a high-end call girl, even saving a juiced-up race horse.

All the while, Grace must keep her dual life a secret from everyone: her protective best friend, NURSE ROSA “RO” QUINTERO (Floriana Lima); her handsome, blue-blooded boyfriend, DR. BRETT ROBINSON (Zach Gilford); her boss at Roosevelt Medical and Chief of Surgery, DR. STAFFORD WHITE (Željko Ivanek); her rival, DR. OLIVIA WILCOX (Jaime Lee Kirchner); even her well-meaning screw-up brother, NATE (Jesse Lee Soffer), and her perpetually in-denial mother, DANIELLA (Wendy Makkena). (Source: FOX TV)

Terrible post productionRating: 1 likes, 1 dislikes

I think the show is okay. But the editing and post production is terrible. Turn the volume up loud enough to hear/understand the characters and you'll be blown out of the water when their music is played. That alone makes this show almost too annoying to watch - at least the version that I watched. (I could be wrong and it's all the fault of the capper, but I doubt it.) Read more
