It's funny, sarcastic, and thrilling.

Steve Valentine and Kathryn Hahn are great, Ravi Kapoor is outstanding, Miguel Ferrer has such an intense presence that he can steal the scenes without even saying a word, and overall the team share a remarkable chemistry that jumps through the screen.

It is most definitely worth watching!

But it's still a damned good show, and the writers have created a believable, enjoyable group of characters.

My wife enjoys the show and I have watched just over 100 episodes with her and I enjoyed it until the characters developed to the point where it became impossible to have any empathy for them.

Downsides were losing Trey and adding Elaine; he was more enjoyable as a character, though to be fair she improved as the series wore on.

Now it seems as though she is going nowhere and has no one.

As with all TV shows, it *is* formulaic, some episodes are outright ludicrous, and plots often have holes you could drive a Mack truck through blindfolded.

Like I said though, very entertaining.

Jill Hennessy's character is cool enough but kind of contrived and shallow.

this one was refreshing and surprisingly fun and entertaining.

She also manages to be engaging and impossible to look away from as an actress.

Enjoyable show with quirky characters and great story that will keep you entertained.

It has WONDERFUL character interactions as well as the gripping cases our wonderful medical examiners are faced with every day.

This Jill Hennessey series about a Boston-area ME is exciting, interesting and believable.

This is a very compelling series that hooks you with the dynamics of the characters joined with the realistic quality of the plot lines.

She's supposed to be an intense professional with an obsession with finding the killer of her mother: Quincy meets Richard Kimble.

show was like real life, well, you've seen how horribly boring and overwhelmingly stupid that can be.

To sum it up, I love everything about this show, its touching, humorous, entertaining and insightful.

I guess comparisons to Ms. Hennessy's work on Law & Order are inevitable, so I'll just say that her reach at the show's comical content seems slightly stiff and contrived, and underminds the show's edge-ier elements.

Jordan Cavanaugh is intelligent, gorgeous and intriguing.

One needs to look no further than the ratings of all of the "CSI" shows to find proof; the minutiae and drudgery of police and forensic work, once thought to be bland, boring and completely without entertainment value, now has viewers glued to their sets.

This show is funny, sarcastic, and thrilling!

"Crossing Jordan" may not be the best show on TV, certainly not the greatest of all time, but it's definitely worth watching...

It's well written, well acted, and very, well, entertaining.

Entertaining .

The character and plot twists are very entertaining and captivating.

Anyway, I find the dialogues uncommonly well-written, the supporting characters and the whole milieu entertaining (even if some of the former *have* become somewhat cardboardy), likewise the outrageous situations - what would you expect in a morgue?

A solid effort, with a good ensemble cast; to bad the entire effect is so, well, boring.

Definitely worth watching!

Entertaining .

It really does have it's moments, and I find it to be an entertaining hour of television.

Very ENTERTAINING Medical Drama .

Pollick should be brought back those episodes with him were the most entertaining ones.

Predictable and not authentic .

Apart from that, I found it painfully predictable.

I'd have to take that a bit farther and say that this show is truly a waste of time.

They are irritatingly dysfunctional and disappointingly predictable.

How about implausible, badly written, and chock full of pointless gimmicks that just don't work in this context.

It also presents disappointingly predictable plots, and most of its characters are simply unlikeable.

I work in the medical field and LOVE how it all works together to create an enjoyable hour of entertainment.
