...apparently not to Jason (maybe he'll catch on one day, or maybe it's all the rage in England...? or maybe he forgets he's not 7 anymore...?) gotta love him though! ::rofl LN

LOL!! (Note to self: Self, do not ever let Himself stand behind you if he's in the pic.)

He's not alone. It's not a Brit thing. Bunny ears happen among my set of friends, too. Too funny.

Nice photos that you passed on, the latest ones from Twitter posts. It sounds like things are moving along at least towards shooting. I will keep my fingers crossed that it gets picked up completely.

Thanks for the photo!

I hope Surgeon General gets picked up also and will do well. Looks like a strong cast. And if the writing is good...could be another "The Good Wife" in terms of popularity. Now that would be awesome!!

This makes me wonder also ~ what time slot will CBS put Surgeon General. Tuesday nights were amazing with NCIS, NCIS LA and The Good Wife. When CBS moved The Good Wife to Sunday night ~ any show that was put in the 10:00 slot has not done well. I just hope they do not put Surgeon General on Sunday evenings ~ sports get in the way....

it would be too bad if those scrubs were off the rack.... why waste potential eye candy with a 'one size fits all' wardrobe. but i'll bet they bring out his eyes :shock:

At this point in his career, they're custom coloring his scrubs to match his eyes! This is a great perk, they probably custom fit them as well, cuz scrubs just never fit a normal person very well...ah the glam of being a movie star... :adore ln

Very nice picture catch, Thunder. I really wonder how you keep up with it all. You ladies that find all these links and such ... pretty amazing. I definitely tip my hat to you.

Rod Lurie (Director) tweeted:
Just finished my director's cut of THE SURGEON GENERAL. If you thought you knew how good an actor #JasonIsaacs is, think again. Amazing.
Great quote! Hope the CBS Execs agree.

Definitely keeping my fingers crossed on this one. I actually think this show has potential beyond even Jason Isaacs being in it. {Smiles} I think there are several ways they can go about it, and I look forward to seeing which way they go. It "might" have been a show I'd watch the pilot of even if Jason wasn't in it ... just to see what they did with it. Now, having said that, with Jason in the lead ... you know I would definitely be there to watch every week for as long as they put it out there. I'm all ready to reload my iTunes and Amazon gift card accounts to "buy" the episodes as they air if it is picked up for this season. LOL.

P.S. Char they came in, but I had to get the taxes done this last week. Hopefully you will hear from me this coming week.

We have always know how amazing Jason is....the man lights up every scene he is in! And it goes without saying but ANYTHING Jason wears just becomes so much better with him in them. ;-) I want him to be on every week so badly.

Hoping the execs agree too, Char...thank you for this info. :hug
