David E. Kelley has adapted CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta‘s novel Monday Mornings for TNT, with worthy results. Kelley is best known as bringing to screen more procedurals than Dick Wolff, from Chicago Hope to Ally McBeal, and Monday Mornings definitely falls in step with the medical drama formula. Still, there’s something undeniably likable about the series. But it takes a few episodes to really get started, and if viewers just base on its by-the-books pilot, it may not last beyond its initial ten-episode run (which it should). Hit the jump for more about why it’s worth tuning in, not at least for the return of Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica) to our screens, and the unexpected and welcomed presence of Ving Rhames (Mission Impossible).
