3 LBS: Season 1 (2006)


Season 1
3 LBS

Critics Consensus

Bearing an unflattering resemblance to another television series about a grumpy doctor, 3 Lbs. squanders the talent of Stanley Tucci on a derivative setup that lacks the necessary brains to stand out.

Critic Reviews for 3 LBS Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (20)

I have to issue this warning: Mediocre medicine ahead. The title refers to the weight of the average brain. And 3 Lbs is not above average in any way.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

If you haven't seen it all before, you haven't watched much TV, and even though Tucci is highly regarded, that doesn't make his character, Douglas Hanson, any less trite.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Just too dopey to be deemed fully capacitated.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

3 Lbs. has some promise ...It seems worth keeping an eye on.

You'd have to be brain dead to do what CBS has gone and done and put it up on the same night as "House" which will invite comparison. Trust me, it won't come out on top.

Sep 27, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The puzzler here: Why do we need Stanley Tucci as a logical genius in scrubs when we already have Hugh Laurie?

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Tucci is a master craftsman, who should have had his own series long ago, and Feuerstein capably fills the role.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Losing 3lbs probably wouldn't be a bad idea, on many levels -- it's House without Hugh Laurie, it's a bloodless ER, and of course it is entirely implausible.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Jonathan will be the emotional and moral go-between for Hanson and his patients and their families. It's a tedious role, but apparently someone has to play it.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

With its high production values and strong cast, 3 LBS. is easy to watch and has some touching moments.

Sep 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Another plot-driven, procedural "House" clone.

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Other than graphics that scoot along the neural pathways like subatomic Nascar racers, the show doesn't have much new to offer.
