Nishijima Hidetoshi plays a doctor who can diagnose any illness by sight while doing the thinking pose. Because he's worked in a prison before, Dr Tameyori can also see when someone is going to commit murder. Did I mention not too think too hard when watching this show? Later in the show Dr Tameyori is supposed to be involved in research but we never see him do any.
Densha is a cop with anger issues stemming from his strong sense of justice, whatever that means. The big mystery of Mutsu is the murder of a family of four which Densha is determined to solve. Of course, he has an overacting boss who always shouts at him for overstepping his boundaries etc etc. Zzzz.
Ito Hideaki runs his own hospital and has a hot secretary.
Did I mention the sexy secretary?
Ishibashi Anna is a psych doctor who's only job in the show is to babysit one patient.
And that patient is Menma, I mean Hamabe Minami who belongs in a psychiatric hospital instead of a regular one but this show is not concerned about common sense.
Oh yeah, there's the creepy hospital janitor with no eyebrows.
The acting in Mutsu is very bad. Sometimes its ok but most of the time its very inconsistent with overacting that mad me cringe.
There are a lot of interesting ideas and cliffhangers but the execution is so clumsy. The family murder reminded me of Kazoku Gari, another Densha dorama but nowhere as good. I watched all the way for the mystery and its actually not bad but they just had to put in a long stupid debate with the villain and a karma ending that you could see coming a mile away.
Mutsu is a trashy, badly executed murder mystery with just enough eye candy, I mean twists and turns and interesting ideas to keep me entertained.
