Catching up on A Gifted Man

My schedule has been very busy this year, so I haven't been able to watch certain procedurals on the day or day after they air. I got a little extra time this weekend and watched the three episodes I hadn't watched.

Mainly, the show has its moments, but is nothing spectacular and is sometimes mind-numbing. While it's clear Michael gets more involved with the clinic each week, the writers find it necessary to have him declare how he's never touching the clinic again, only to have Anna pop up and convince him otherwise. With no subtlety, the writers desperately try to drill into the viewers' heads that Michael, with Anna's help, is fighting these impulses to be self-centered.

One thing that really caught my attention, the gunshot in the last episode. I've heard plenty of guns shot on television, but for some reason that one was loud enough to shock me.
