Here we have yet another pathologist/medical examiner, super hero/crime fighter. This time it's Dana Delaney. This time it's set in Philadelphia.
The story lines suffer from the flaws of many in this genre. Credibility.
The character has problems with her hands so had to change specialties from neurosurgery to pathology. This is quite a step down both in status and money but she was left with little choice. So she is very over qualified to do autopsies. Hence, she takes an interest in every one else's job because she gets bored with just cutting up dead bodies. This is where the credibility issue comes in. After Phillies finest detectives can't crack a case, Dr. Megan Hunt makes a suggestion based on her encyclopedic knowledge or autopsy evidence and the hunt is on.

Having said all this. I watched it on Alibi and I really enjoyed the show. As I said, you have to be prepared to be forgiving. It holds lot of good prospects for a second series. Jeri Ryan (7 of 9 from star trek voyager) is the boss. But not just the boss. The boss who has a fling with Dr. Hunt's ex. There's also a dysfunctional daughter to add to the drama.
All in all, a good addition to the genre with the above reservations.

Enjoyed the series - but the running order fouls up the back story with many events happening out of sequence. Turns out that ABC originally aired the programs this way!! So that's how they are listed on Amazon instant video and if you watch each episode individually naturally you click on them in turn and puzzle over the weird back story issues. However, I noticed that if you click on the "next up" at the end of each episode instead of selecting them from the menu then it automatically shows them in the correct chronological / production order (rather than by date aired) - this jumps back and forth between seasons 1 and 2 a bit, as ABC decided not to screen 4 of the original season 1 episodes but hold them back for season 2 - but makes more sense to watch them this way. Barring a marathon session it does, however, mean you need to remember where you left off...

Dr Megan Hunt...former top surgeon, now epic Medical Examiner, and general know-it-all-about-everything, except how to be a wife, mother and friend, but she's learning on the job! Yes, I think that about summerises 'Body of Proof', a US star vehicle for Dana Delany (of recent 'Desperate Housewives' fame) with a supporting cast of who, who, who (only Jeri Ryan, of Voyager, stands out as a semi-recognisable face). However there are pop up 'special guest stars' which add interest.

Basically, the story is police procedural and episodic, with only family strands (i.e. Megan's inability to connect with her daughter) that spread across the series. Dana Delany does well to carry the show, but the writer's insistence on making her a general know-it-all is grating. If the show reaches a second season it would be nice to have a slightly humbler Dr Hunt, who learns and grows from others, rather than being the only one who seems to know what on earth is going on in the ME's office. Also I do question whether a woman who spends so much time on her feet at the surgical table would ever be able to maintain the standard of high-heel that she sports through every episode

On the whole a sterling effort, B+ for a first season, but there's work to do if 'Body of Proof' is going to become the level of hit series than Delany has enjoyed before.

The premise is not original, but still good. The characters are weak, the dialog is "on the nose" making the stories predictable and unauthentic. I love watching strong female lead characters unfold (for example: FARGO mini-series, Olive Kitteridge, The Americans), but in this show the main character feels like a ego centric "man in a skirt". That's not the fault of the actors, it is weak writing in my opinion. In summary there are only three characters in this series: the subject, who is a corpse, the protagonist: an over confident lead who knows everything about everything making her unfortunately conceited. Everyone else are facades of a single persona. This makes the ALL the other characters idiots by proxy, and the most disturbing thing to me that the writer chose to render the supporting men characters as fools. Focusing on gender perpetuates sexism, albeit the flip side of the coin, it is still the same coin. Great characters emerge from great adversary, this series neglects that.

Because this series did not exhaust my brain cells - I found it relaxing viewing. The characters most worthy of note for their acting ability were not the two Barby Dolls tripping about in ridiculous high heels.

From Part one - I continued to watch the series, and will purchase the Region 2 DVD when available, for the pleasure of witnessing the subtle humour of Windell (Curtis Brumfield), Geoffrey (Ethan Gross), and the sensitive interpretation of Peter Dunlop by Nicholas Bishop. I can't imagine there being a Series Two worth watching without them.

Season 1 episodes are badly messed up. Starting from the Season 1 episode list (error with episodes 3, 5, 6 and 7):

The title is correct but shows the description from the equivalent episode number from Season 2

Then when you select the episode line to go to the episode page, the description stays (with S2 desc) and the title changes to match the Season 2 episode;

When you play it plays the content matching the new title.

The actual episodes for Season 2 seem in the right place so basically 4 episodes of Season 1 aren't accessible.

What a mess. This explains why the back stories and relationships seemed to jump all over the place!
