I always feel sorry for UK networks who a buy an American show only for it to be cancelled in the states before they start transmitting it with Watch already having to see Alcatraz not being recommissioned now they are airing A Gifted Man which is already not coming back for a second series. Though the first episode isn’t perfect there doesn’t seem to be any indication why a programme like this would be cancelled, after all I’ve seen much worse from programmes that have run for years, however these days if people don’t instantly take to a certain show then they won’t bother with it. The Gifted Man of the title is neurosurgeon Michael Holt played by Patrick Wilson who is presented from the outset as a genius but one who is very insular and abrasive to those around him. The opening scenes see him operate on close friend Ron Venets an annoying multi-millionaire who has paid a lot of money for Michael’s services however during the operation we see that he isn’t easy to get along with barking a several colleagues who make mistakes. He’s also fairly unkind to his loyal assistant Rita and as we see he runs alone as well as eats alone however his life is about to change following an unexpected encounter with his ex-wife.
