A Gifted Man

A Gifted Man is a drama about a brilliant, charismatic surgeon whose life changes forever when his deceased ex-wife begins teaching him the meaning of life from the "hereafter". Michael Holt is an exceptional doctor who lives a materialistic life of luxury thanks to his work-obsessed career and powerful and wealthy patients; however, Michael's ordered world is rocked when his ex-wife, Anna, an idealistic free-clinic doctor and the love of his life, mysteriously appears to him. In an attempt to go back to his "normal" life, Michael visits Anton, a carpenter who moonlights as a Shaman to try and extract Anna's spirit from his body, but when Anna reappears and asks Michael to go to her clinic to help keep it running, he realizes she needs him more now then ever. Curious about Michael's sudden change in behavior is his efficient assistant, Rita, who works tirelessly to facilitate his schedule in order to accommodate his added responsibilities at the clinic. Touched by those in need and accepting of Anna's compassionate "presence", Michael's attitude toward serving the rich and poor is turned upside down, and he begins to see that there's room in his life for everyone.

I have this series. Yeah. to me it was worth getting. I was sad when it didn't get renewed because it sure earned it. Great premise and great writing. It was this show that showed me "brainbows"! And this was the first time I ever saw Margo Martindale. A great actress that just turned in a great performance in this show and I was glad to see keep getting roles.  I later watched Justified. I bought the whole set and saw that she had already established herself as an actress to be reckoned with long before A Gifted Man. Justified before this show and The Americans after were some favorite shows of mine she has been in. Note this whole cast has made their marks in acting before and since. Really great show cut down before it's prime. But... Gotta make way for insipid reality programming.
