Good Sam stages a One Tree Hill reunion
January 20th, 2022 under One Tree Hill, Sophia Bush. [ Comments: none ]

The One Tree Hill cast loved working with each other so much that they are still doing it almost 10 years after the show ended. Case in point Hilarie Burton and Bethany Joy Lenz will be joining Sophia Bush on her new CBS medical drama, Good Sam.

The two guest stars will play sisters, Gretchen (Burton) and Amy (Lenz) Taylor, who cross paths with Dr. Sam Griffith (Bush) when Amy is admitted as a patient at Detroit’s Lakeshore Sentinel Hospital.

Bush said, “People ask me ‘what’s the best part about producing @goodsamcbs?’ Having my best girls come to play ranks up top!”

In case you are like me and didn’t know this, the three of them have a podcast together called Drama Queens called iHeartRadio.


BTWF: Sophia Bush in National Lampoon’s Van Wilder
January 19th, 2022 under Before They Were Famous, Sophia Bush. [ Comments: none ]

Before Sophia Bush was supplying air to patients on Good Sam, she didn’t know who Air Supply was in National Lampoon’s Van Wilder. She looks the same now as she did when she was 19 in that 2002 movie.


Sam’s father makes her the butt of all jokes on Good Sam tonight
January 19th, 2022 under CBS, Jane the Virgin, Sophia Bush. [ Comments: 10 ]

CBS’s new medical drama Good Sam is about a daughter and her dad fighting for the same position, the Cheif of Surgery. You see, Sam’s (Sophia Bush) father Griff (Jason Isaacs) held the position until he was shot and spent six months in a coma. During his absence, the hospital offered his job to Sam. Now that he is awake, he will do anything to get that position back, including screwing over his daughter.

Last week, Griff went to the board and convinced them to give him his job back. Sam then went to them and got them to hold off. Now, they are at war. And tonight at 10p, he proves he is a$$hole. He finds a way to embarrass his daughter and cost the hospital a lot of money. So Sam has to find a way to undo what he did, but she might not be able to do it.

If that is enough, she has a patient that has come in with chest pains after sex. Sam notices she had a heart attack. Actually, she has had several and didn’t even know it. Therefore, Sam has to figure out what has been causing them before one of them kills her, and the patient has not been completely honest about her history.

Sam will get the patient’s real history from her doctor. That doctor has had a history with Griff, and she offers Sam an offer she can’t refuse. But Sam refuses it. How long can Sam say no to her offer?

There is even more trouble for Sam’s department. One of her doctors lost a patient on the table. Now, they are having problems coping with it. Will they be able to find out why a simple procedure led to their patient dying?

Oh, and did I mention that is episode is directed by Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez? She is as good in front of the camera as she is from behind it.

I have to admit that I wasn’t wowed by the pilot of Good Sam. But now that I have watched the first three episodes, I am in love with the show. The pilot was just setting things up for the great war between a father and his daughter, all while mixing the heart that Sam has when she sees her patients. Sam and Bush are the same when it comes to caring for people. It is as though this character was made for Bush, and that is why she was perfectly cast in the role.


BTWF: Sophia Bush on Sabrina: The Teenage Witch
January 5th, 2022 under Before They Were Famous, Sophia Bush. [ Comments: none ]

Before Sophia Bush was deciding people’s fates on Chicago PD, that was her sole purpose on Sabrina: The Teenage Witch. She looks the same now as she did when she was 20 in that 1993 episode.


Good Sam is a life full circle moment for Sophia Bush
January 5th, 2022 under CBS, Sophia Bush. [ Comments: none ]

Sophia Bush is back on television tonight in the medical drama Good Sam on CBS at 10p. It is not your typical medical show because it adds the twist of what happens when it is a family business.

Dr. Sam Griffith (Bush) grew up in the hospital because her dad Griff (Jason Isaacs) is Chief of Surgery, and her mom, Vivian Katz (Wendy Crewson), runs it. However, her parents are no longer together because her dad’s first, second, and third love is surgery.

Sam followed in her father’s footsteps and became a heart surgeon, and she works under him at the same hospital. He is very tough on his daughter and all the other surgeons. Sam is unlike him in that manner. She is not only a heart surgeon, but she also has a heart when it comes to her patients and co-workers.

One day their lives are all going to change when Griff is shot in the hospital, and he spends several months in a coma. No one knows if he is going to wake up. Therefore, they make Sam the new head of surgery in his absence.

Just when they are ready to make the announcement, Griff wakes up. He wants his title back, and he can’t have it because it is Sam’s. Not only that, he has to be cleared to work again. Sam has to approve that, and he has to work under her. He doesn’t want to work under anyone, including his daughter, and he will undermine with every chance that he gets.

How will the two Griffins learn to work together with their new dynamic? That is what we will find out when we watch Good Sam every Wednesday night.

Good Sam is like a dream come true for Bush. She shared how during a press event at the CBS Winter Press Day. She said, “The irony of all of this is that my plan as a kid. I don’t know if it’s growing up the daughter of an immigrant or what. But your options are really like you’re a doctor or a lawyer, or a lawyer or a doctor. So as a young person, I said I wanted to be a doctor. And I was particularly fascinated with heart surgery. Considered it as a specialty.”

However, something happened that changed her career path. “My high school drama teacher got in the way and helped put me up in my first play. You can imagine the shock when I told my parents I wasn’t going to med school, I was going to go study theater and learn how to do costume makeup.”

So now that she gets to play a doctor, “it really feels full circle. My parents are thrilled by this. They’re sort of like living out their moment.”

I am sure they have been living out their moments with her ever since she became an actress. Not only does she excel in every role, but she is also a caring individual who gives back all of the time. What more could any parent want?
