I never thought I’d be watching Emily Owens, MD.  But then I saw Joshua Sanchez’ new feature film FOUR this past summer, and one of the ‘four’ stars of that film (it’s a repeated theme throughout the movie) is Aja Naomi King and she was so both intense and intriguing that I knew I’d be on board with anything else she’d appear in, which brings us to Emily Owens, MD, the new medical drama/fish-out-of-water/professional life is like high school show on the CW.  Very compared to Grey’s Anatomy, from which it copies heavily but respectably from, it stars Mamie Gummer in the title role playing a sort of dorky looking young lady who just happens to be the daughter of superstar actress Meryl Streep.  Yes, that Meryl Streep.
