Pure Genius is a cutting-edge medical drama about a young Silicon Valley tech titan who enlists an exceptional veteran surgeon with a controversial past to run a state-of-the-art hospital with an ultramodern approach to medicine. Billionaire genius James Bell built Bunker Hill Hospital determined to revolutionize health care and treat the rarest and most challenging medical mysteries, at no charge. Bell persuades maverick surgeon Dr. Walter Wallace to be his Chief of Staff; Dr. Wallace believed medicine was a human endeavor, not technological, until a eureka moment at the hospital convinced him otherwise. Bell's team of trailblazers includes Dr. Zoe Brockett, an exceptional, fearlessly frank physician; Dr. Talaikha Channarayapatra, an idealistic, maddeningly literal neurosurgeon who believes the hospital is a beacon for change; Dr. Malik Verlaine, a former gangbanger now spearheading efforts to provide 24/7 health monitoring in poor neighborhoods via computer; Dr. Scott Strauss, an intense neurologist with an Ivy league pedigree; and Angie Cheng, an enthusiastic 3-D printer programming whiz. At Bunker Hill, Bell pairs the most brilliant minds in medicine with the most forward thinkers in technology and cuts bureaucracy out of the equation, all in the interest of saving lives, including his own.

Thank you CBS
A truely enjoyable drama that pulls on both the brain and heartstrings. While I have no doubt it deals with medical impossibilities, I think it is our hope of how technology might one day intersect with medicine and how we would all like to be treated by the medical community. And knowing many doctors and administrators, I imagine it might express their hope to have such tools, technologies and freedom to handle patient care.
Disrupt your Doctor
This show looks like something dreamed up by a bunch of Silicon Valley nouveau 1%-ers who want to buff up their image as vital trailblazers who will save us all from our boring safety protocols and red tape.
First episode is solid. Can they sustain the emotionality and vision without becoming trite? I sure hope so.
