Three Rivers is a medical drama, starring Julia Ormond, Alex O’Loughlin and Katherine Moennig. It shows how life, death, and second chances all intertwine. I tend to steer away from medical dramas because I don’t really enjoy seeing organs and blood and…well you get the picture. But Three Rivers was different. It is set in the organ donation division, and there were a few shots of a heart, but I can accept having to close my eyes for a few seconds. The show was really great. I was so pleased to see Katherine Moennig, as I loved her in The L Word (although seeing Shane in scrubs is a bit odd). I think the fact that the show is set in a specific division sets it aside from other (possibly boring) medical dramas. It is sort of a touchy subject, but it has great potential, and the cast is refreshing and genuine. I am also excited that Alfre Woodard will be joining the cast come the fall!
Three Rivers premieres on Sunday, October 4th at 9 pm on CBS. I will definitely be watching.Tweet
