Then you’ll love what we have planned for the summer! Starting the week after H50 ends and I finish pic spam for the finale, we’ll start with a rewatch/recap of the 13 episodes of Alex’s last TV series, Three Rivers. Steph and I will be posting a recap each week and hopefully you will come along and join in the discussion.
Three Rivers, while it had it’s faults (name me a TV show that doesn’t), is a unique medical TV show in that it’s focus is on the lives that organ transplantation effects. Following the lives of the donor and the lives of the recipient each episode brings tragedy and hope, life through death.
It’s a bit “glossy” at times and tends to hit you over the head with it’s message….but it also tackles some very real and controversial subjects. The right to die, family opposition, time constraints and odd legalities of organ donation as well as the successes and failures of the procedures. If you want a fast paced medical drama, characters more interested in hooking up than the lives of the patients, then this drama is probably not for you but if you like a drama that gives you reason to think and maybe even renews a little bit of your faith in human life….you might just enjoy this a bit.
As an Alex fan, what I loved is the amount of real acting range it allowed Alex to go after. While Alex is awesome as our Steve McGarrett BAMF, I think we can all agree that some of his best acting is when he gets to bring life to those quiet, emotional moments.
If you’ve watched the series, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t…I’ve thrown together a little teaser for you. I hope you enjoy and that you’ll join us starting Sunday, June 2nd.
