A Gifted Man actually has a couple things going for it. Its greatest strength is in Patrick Wilson and Jennifer Ehle who capture the screen whenever they are together. Their scenes are endearing and humorous at times, creating two likable characters by the end of the episode.
The rest of the show I'm less certain of. What is the show supposed to be, exactly? There are so many other random things--Michael's sister, the shaman, Anna's clinic--that, beyond Michael's gift, there is little to look forward to. But for now, I'll just stay that it was a decent pilot which makes the show worth another look.
