More of a pro-alternative medicine screed than an entertaining drama
This drama about the battles of a few hospital doctors to pursue more spiritual and holistic healing methods along with traditional methods was too squishy even for the PAX Network. It was cancelled after only a couple of months. Strauss and Laskin were clearly the main characters, but the starring cast was perhaps a bit too large for a consistent focus. The conflicts on each episode grew tiresomely repetitive, as the courageous doctors butted heads with the intransigent and unimaginative authorities again and again to use their maverick treatments (which weren't really all that wild) on their patient of the week. The predictability of it all at least prevented the show from bathing the viewer in pathos, which is usually the problem with this kind of show.
