A team of doctors in a trauma unit, 4 July 2005
Author: filomango69 from Philippines

Shelley Hack bounces back from her abbreviated Charlie's Angels stint and proves that with the right material, she is not without acting talents and charms. I've always liked Shelley and in this show, she made the transition from Charlie's Angel to angel of mercy rather easily. She is joined by a talented newcomer Alec Baldwin. This was just before Alec made a career-making turn on Knots Landing. This was an interesting, critically well-received show that should have grown and progressed, if the network had only supported it. What a waste. From Cutter to Houston (originally dubbed "Scrubs") could have taken the credits for discovering Alec Baldwin and unveiling the star that Charlie's Angels failed to bring out in Shelley Hack.
