Review of Rosewood

60 minutes

From executive producer Todd Harthan (“Psych,” “Dominion”), ROSEWOOD stars Morris Chestnut (“Nurse Jackie,” “The Best Man” franchise) as DR. BEAUMONT ROSEWOOD, JR., a brilliant private pathologist who uses wildly sophisticated technology and his drive to live life to the fullest to help a tough-as-nails detective (Jaina Lee Ortiz, “The After”) and the Miami PD uncover clues no one else can see.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This show is a really cheesy idea, but it's appealingly packaged.

The main character is a 'private pathologist'. Never mind how such a person is supposed to get enough work to keep him in business in his skeletally staffed high tech lab. He is brilliant enough to see that a supposed murder victim had lethal cancer and committed suicide (because obviously nobody would ever murder someone who is terminally ill). He himself is a walking combination of potentially deadly symptoms, caused by being born three months prematurely, but he looks like, well, a Hollywood hottie, and can certainly work up a sweat, right up until the script calls for him to be pathetically frail.

The characters are fun, and lively, with the possible exception of the romantic interest. I don't think it's really the actress's fault, but her lines in particular are vapid and uninteresting.

I don't hate it, but unless you're a fan of one of the actors involved it's probably not going to make the cut for you.
