Isn’t the whole series on Peacock?

I forgot why I never finished the podcast, back injury/surgery scares the crap out of me. Made it through the first ep will see if I can handle it.

It seemed like there was quite a bit of hopping from one thing to the next and jumping timelines at first.  I had a little bit of a hard time with that.  Also, the surgery part is so much harder to actually watch than just listen to on a podcast!  But I'm enjoying it so far and look forward to watching more episodes.

Maybe I'm not remembering correctly but I thought with the podcast, you kind of came to the conclusion by yourself to question whether he was intentionally doing harm or he simply had no idea how to even do surgery.  With the show, they are coming right out and questioning it from the start.  

Great cast - lots of eye candy!  Love me some Joshua Jackson and Alec looks good with his distinguished gray hair.

My favorite part so far is the interplay between Christian Slater and Alec Baldwin, just delightful!

I am not used to seeing Alec Baldwin playing a good guy! It's a whole different dynamic for him. I spent yesterday watching the whole thing!

Alec Baldwin is such a great actor.  He does so much of everything that it’s easy to forget how good he is in a dramatic role.

I think listening to the podcast first helps, so if you haven’t, maybe do that since it helps with the time jumping. They changed the parents names I noticed but not some others like Drs Henderson and Kirby. My husband doesn’t like podcasts so he hasn’t listened to it so it took him a bit to catch on. He’s had two neck fusions before he was 35 so this hits a bit close to home. We’re enjoying it. 

Christian Slater seems to be having a career rebirth of taking on TV adaptions of popular podcasts.

My friend suggested I watch this. My mom (an Ob/Gyn) is yelling at the screen. She said “is that the boy from Mighty Ducks when you were little??” (Shes 73) Yup Mom that’s him.

Yes, don't make the mistake I did and try to eat while you watch. 😁
