WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Body of Proof” has slightly improved in its second season. That being said, the dynamic between Jeri Ryan and Dana Delaney makes no sense. Delaney is aloof, yet able to understand most of the intricate relationships of her office. However, she can’t quite seem to pick an emotional aptitude when challenged by Jeri Ryan or others. I call it the Doctor House factor, where characters on a television show are forced to relate with someone that is their intellectual superior. I wonder why everyone kills themselves to make a special person relatable?
This show is designed for older, angry, female audiences that apparently love crime dramas and medical examiner shows. Expect the main character to dress like a prostitute, to have barely any social skills, but always succeed, and every coworker depends on her to run their lives. Expect her to never run into anyone who scares her, or anyone who ever out argues/thinks her. Body of Proof is definitely not the best crime or even medical related show I have seen and it lack originality. The series is like a mesh between CSI and ER except with less focus on the relationships among the characters. Which makes it a lackluster “Bones” knock-off.
The DVD comes with featurettes and select webisodes. The A/V Quality is pretty strong with a Dolby 5.1 track that is pretty amazing and a clean standard definition transfer. I still wish that an HD release would come out. It’s weird having an ABC HD broadcast that looks better than this release. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans of the show.
RELEASE DATE: OUT NOW!
