This show, which aired on LA TV station KCOP back in 1994, struck me as somebody trying to cash in on the success of ER - a medical drama! Obvious success! Surely this would be a good thing, so I sat and watched starting at the eyecatch after a commercial.
Instead of something as fascinating as ER, which is granted inaccurate but at least more pleasant due to some skilled acting, I watched for fifteen horrific minutes as the episode where everyone was quarantined due to a possible outbreak of ebola was aired. One patient threatened to sue if he was infected, one patient had heart trouble and promptly went code blue (doctors take note: the best treatment for a stopped heart is to thump him on the chest a couple of times with the base of your closed fist!), and I was treated to lines such as "It looks like it's nothing more than the flu, but it could be ebola!" in a fashion that would make even Ed Wood projectile vomit.
Given the option, I would take the producers of this show and have them shot, but instead I am left giving them a really lousy rating here on IMDB.
