Whoa. Every week The Resident takes television to a whole other level and I cannot get enough. The episode is appropriately titled “Heart In A Box” and most of our beloved characters have put their hearts out there this week for our viewing pleasure.
I have to admit that I worried about this season of The Resident. Last year, I quickly became addicted to the show, but there were some less exciting episodes in the first season that made me begin questioning whether or not the series was going to end up with a second season. Unfortunately, in the times of cancelling shows like it’s nothing, it’s really difficult to become emotionally attached. The Resident proved me wrong this season. Seven episodes in, and it’s only getting better.
The Resident‘s “The Prince and the Pauper” started with a peek into the intimate lives of the doctors of Chastain. Mina (Shaunette Renee Wilson) and Micah (Patrick R. Walker) share a conversation about sticking together in his recovery after open-heart surgery. CoNic nibble on vegetable kabobs and dance on a twinkling rooftop while they try to have a distraction-free evening together outside of the hospital.
During the summer break, I admit I’d forgotten the appeal of my favorite medical drama. I sat down to watch the Season Two premiere “00:42:30” of The Resident rather reluctantly. TV seems overwhelming right now with all of the buzz of a million new pilots.
There’s been a lot of medical dramas — and there’s been even more shows put out there with overused plot lines and ideas that just don’t seem to work once they hit the screens — but The Resident drew me in all too quickly once again. All I have to say is three words: Steamy. Sex. Scene. Literally, the show started off with CoNic in a shower. The chemistry between Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry) and Nic Nevins (Emily VanCamp) is not only undeniable but it is everything that makes a TV couple lovable and — dare I say — desirable.
