* 1/2 Monday Mornings by Sanjay Gupta

Monday Mornings reads like a schmaltzy TV series about emergency rooms, and not the first season, with its more daring storylines and deeper character explorations, but more like season 7 or 8, when all the semi-believeable plots have been exhausted and lifesaving clichés are trotted out amongst unlikely personal tragedies. Still, there are some finely observed characters, the more poignant one for me being the older physician who diagnoses his own brain tumor and transforms his rigid personality and life — and the theatrical drama of the morbidity and mortality reviews is appealing.
