Emily Owens, M.D.: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Emily Owens, M.D.: Season 1 (2012-2013)



Critic Consensus: Mamie Gummer is appealing in the title role, but Emily Owens, M.D. is mostly a second-rate medical comedy in the vein of Grey's Anatomy.

Tv Season Info

Mamie Gummer stars as awkward first-year medical intern Emily Owens in the only season of this drama set at a fictional Denver hospital. Eager to put her geeky high-school days behind her, Emily tries to balance her internship work with romance, especially when she's reunited with her medical-school crush, Will Collins (Justin Hartley). Interactions with Cassandra Kopelson (Aja Naomi King), an old high-school rival who's now a fellow intern, have Emily thinking that working in a hospital is uncomfortably similar to her cliquey high-school years.

Thanks to the clever writing and a very appealing performance by Gummer, this is one of my favorites of the fall season.

Any show that can simultaneously work on your gut and your heart is worth a look.

She [Mamie Gummer] injects the ordinary with her own unique prescription brand pick-me-ups, making Emily Owens bearable when it's not fully embraceable.

Annoying as high school and its legacy can be, at a certain point you move on. For the good of the show, Emily should.

[Gummer] will one day need to step out of her mother's giant shadow. At least Emily proves she's got the chops to cast a shadow of her own.
