I’ve watched a few episodes of Body of Proof (ABC Tuesdays 10 p.m.) and like Dana Delaney and the supporting actors (though why is it that the women cast always look so much better than the men?), but the show is pretty conventional.

Delaney plays an ambitious, socially inept surgeon who has lost her job because of an accident and taken up a post as a medical examiner.  For longtime readers of Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta mysteries (I am one), the main character and one detective she works with frequently seem like refreshed and somewhat sanitized (for TV) versions of these Dr. Scarpetta and Pete Marino.

Already, though, Delaney’s character is softening, and the scripts are as formulaic as they come.  If you like procedurals without too much violence and find comfort in predictability, then this should be a viewing pleasure.  For me, I think it’s time to tune out…
