Monroe: Series 1 DVD Review



Synopsis: Dr. Gabriel Monroe (James Nesbitt, Murphy’s Law) is a neurosurgical genius with a quick wit and a heart to match his titanic ego. Following no rules but his own, Monroe infuriates colleagues and terrifies interns with his glib repartee and arrogant self-regard. 

Pitting his formidable skills against high-risk medical emergencies is only one of Monroe’s challenges. He and his team must also navigate the toll that medicine takes on patients and doctors—especially when dealing with their personal lives. As slick as he is with a scalpel, Monroe struggles at home as a husband and father, and at work he clashes with brusque heart surgeon Dr. Jenny Bremner (Sarah Parish, The Pillars of the Earth).

With a dose of House’s dark humor and an infusion of humanity and warmth, Monroe is gripping medical drama at its best.

Review: We love british TV here at DVD Legion...and my wife loves medical shows.  It can be Scrubs or Grey's or House or E.R....its all good with her, which means its all good with me.  Monroe is a great character from over the pond that has a giant House-like ego.  Of course, much like House his ego is well-founded, not that it helps him get along better with his colleagues.  He's obsessed, rude, blunt and arrogant.  We love him!    We'd love to see more of this series and we highly recommend it!

Interest Range: TV Show, British
