Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The Mob Doctor is one of those shows whose title and premise are so silly that it could go either way. (Is this attractive young surgeon really a "mob doctor"? Yes, she is -- and it's pretty much how it sounds.) But in the end, the show smacks more of hammy melodrama than genuinely compelling television thanks to characters that feel half-formed and dialogue that doesn't ring true to life. In fact, it might be more entertaining as a parody than as decidedly serious fare.

While other medical dramas have played with plots that mix the crime world and the medical profession, there hasn't been a show that's been willing to commit to the marriage of the two. But now that there is one ... there won't likely be another.
