If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/29/11

We’re nearing the end of March, and gearing up to the end of this season, which makes me VERY sad. But to make me (& you!) happy, tonight is a BUSY night on TV, so we get plenty to choose from. A quick update from Megan… She texted me yesterday to say she was on her way home. She was sore, tired, and on several post-surgery meds, but she and little Pherson are still doing well! Yay! Now, on to what Lisa, Jamie, & I think you should watch tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

One of the shows I have been looking forward to for MONTHS premieres tonight. Dana Delaney stars in Body of Proof on ABC. I’ve loved her for years, and I’ve seen 2 episodes of this show so far, and loved both.

Dr. Megan Hunt (Delany) is in a class of her own, a brilliant and world-renowned neurosurgeon at the top of her game, although success and notoriety have cost her her marriage and her relationship with her 12-year-old daughter. Then Megan’s world is turned upside down by a devastating car accident that puts an end to her career as a surgeon. Broken but determined, with her love of medicine intact but a lack of feeling in her hands, Megan is pointed in the only direction she can turn, to a career as a medical examiner. Now a committed advocate for the dead, Megan solves the mysteries of their deaths while telling the stories of their lives.

Megan’s instincts are sharp, though she’s developed a reputation for blurring the line between where her job ends and the police department’s begins. But her career isn’t the only thing that needs rebuilding; her family has taken a backseat to her ambition, and she’s discovering she has a lot of dissecting to do in her relationships with the living. As she tries to rekindle her relationship with her daughter, Megan seeks forgiveness from the one person least likely to give it — herself.

Body of Proof stars Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives, Kidnapped, Pasadena) stars as Dr. Megan Hunt, Jeri Ryan (Shark, Leverage, Star Trek: Voyager) as Dr. Kate Murphey, John Carroll Lynch (K-Ville, Close to Home, The Drew Carey Show) as Detective Bud Morris, Nicholas Bishop (Past Life) as Peter Dunlop, Sonja Sohn (Brothers & Sisters, The Wire, Cold Case) as Detective Samantha Baker, Geoffrey Arend as Dr. Ethan Gross and Windell D. Middlebrooks (The Suite Life on Deck, Scrubs) as Dr. Curtis Brumfield.

On tonight’s premiere, a female jogger is found floating in the Schuylkill River. Dr. Megan Hunt teams up with her partner, medical investigator and former cop Peter Dunlop, under the watchful eye of their boss, Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Kate Murphey, who is very aware of Megan’s gifted but polarizing work style. Megan’s colleagues, Dr. Ethan Gross and Deputy Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Curtis Brumfield, must find their own way to work alongside the new medical examiner. Megan’s investigation takes her out in the field, where she meets old-school cop Detective Bud Morris, who is exasperated by Megan’s tenacity and bull-headedness. But his partner, Detective Samantha Baker, possesses a quiet respect for Megan’s input, even if Morris doesn’t. Meanwhile, as she is trying to solve the female jogger’s death, Megan has to solve a personal puzzle of her own — what is the perfect present for her daughter’s 12th birthday?
