So.  It's not horrible.  Hale is quite good in it.  She's also Lindy 
Booth skinny.  None of the dialog rings true - it sounds like overly 
clever writing making characters say the things they wish they had said 
but not thought of until the middle of the night.

The idea that your beautiful Asian virgin doctor would try a treatment 
and then say "you're cured - not in remission cured - you've beaten 
cancer, it's gone" - especially without a 5 year wait or something - is 
absolutely ridiculous.  She went from 6 months to live (suffering from 
the type of cancer that smites yet does not wither) to ABSOLUTELY 
doctor visit to the next.  Paul Bryan should have been so lucky.

They checked the PC boxes left and right.  Hale and her sister Beth are 
both married to men of color.  Mom's a lesbian.  Boss is black.  Doctor 
is Asian.  The two white males in her life - her father and brother - 
are both hapless idiots.  This is becoming tiresome fast.

The premise is that now that Hale is ABSOLUTELY COMPLETELY TOTALLY CURED 
NOT IN REMISSION CURED CURED CURED she now has to fix everybody else's 
life.  So her first mission is to fix her beautiful virgin Asian doctor 
up with her literal moron drug addict idiot worthless brother because - 
wait, what the fuck?  WHY?

I wouldn't say you're stuffed absolutely clean full of wild blueberry 
muffins for liking it, but it's not for me.  One and done.
