Rosewood

Morris Chestnut is getting in on the black characters on tv bomb with his lead role of Fox’s new cop drama, Rosewood. The show is set in Miami, Fl, but has an interesting twist that makes it way more original than just another CSI, Criminal Minds or NCIS.  Beaumont Rosewood Jr is the city’s sexy new autospy doctor. Yes I had to mention sexy because one it’s Morris Chestnut and two that is part of his characterization. The smart, fast talking, charismatic Rosewood is much more than what you expect from your typical pathology doctor. He drives a flashy yellow sports car, owns his own lab Magic City Lab Inc, and works with his sister and her lesbian fiancé. Yes, the story gets more interesting by the second.

Episode one serves as the introduction in every sense of the word. We get to know Rosewood and a condition he has that really shapes the purpose of the entire show as well as other main characters and their relationships with one another. Rosie’s, another name for Rosewood, sister played by Gabrielle Dennis and her fiancé add the family and funny to the cast while Detective Villa brings a more serious and emotional tone. Villa is a NYC cop who moved back to Miami after her husband died from a pulmonary embolism.

The case presented in episode one is not even a real case until we see Rosewood work his manic and brain to discover that Nora Gracson was murdered not killed in an auto accident. Rosewood’s  mother, played by Lorraine Toussaint, comes in with a family favor for a church friend’s daughter who supposedly died in a car crash. Mom isn’t convinced the county autospy did their job and after a short examination Rosie agrees. In addition to being pretty damn good at his job, Rosewood, seems to have an itch for the detective side of things as well. At the start of the episode he examines and solves a murder mystery at a crime scene that is on the route of his morning jog. And after convincing Detective Villa, to reopen the case on Nora he takes it upon himself to find a number one suspect. The rest of the episode follows the detective and Rosie as they solve the case. The twist is that the detective doesn’t want any of Rosewoods assistance along the way. Lucky for her he is persistent and makes major scores in the evidence department that help her find who really killed Nora Gracson.

Before the episode ends we find out that Rosewood is dying, which ups the ante for the show. He was born premature with tons of immune and physical medical complications which have put is life on a clock that is counting down quickly. Maybe that is why he seems to come off very addicted to death and quite confident.

Watching where this series will go next is exciting because you never know what a person who knows they are dying will do next.
