The jury is still out on this one. In all fairness, this is my first season watching HawthoRNe, the medical drama on TNT. The first episode came on June 14. Last night I watched the 7th one-hr show. It’s due to run for 10. Already I am just about ready to give it up because of the flaky story lines.
The show’s main character is the very talented Jada Pinkett Smith. She’s an RN who used to be the CNO/DON at James River Hospital. She was attacked and badly beaten on the first episode while leaving the hospital for home on her wedding night. By the second week her assailant is killed by the detective investigating the case who I’m assuming was a good friend, but becomes her lover in this season. Bad mistake…
Last week she helped arrange a birthday party for the detective’s mom and ended up having an affair with him afterwards. I stood in my living room screaming “NO! NO! NO! You just got married.”
Why cheat on your new husband?
So last night’s drama started with Christina in bed having a dream of this affair. I was happy that it was a dream but it was very short-lived. Later she disclosed to her husband, Tom, that she indeed slept with the detective. She told him that she loved him. But she couldn’t answer his question if she loved the other man? Shouldn’t it be easy enough to answer? I was disheartened.
Well, whatever the answer, I don’t think it’s worth any more of my time watching the remaining episodes. Heaven knows I have other things I need to do instead.
I am so disappointed that television writers think they have to put adultery, lies, and ignorance in their show’s storyline. But that’s television for you and that’s what sells. So needless to say, I ain’t buying.
