Not bad but it is hard to imagine any hospital run this poorly!
20 July 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins with a group of thieves sneaking into the hospital and attacking the staff--and stealing the drug supply. However, the viewer can clearly see that at least one of the hospital staff knew the crime was about to occur. You learn soon after that another was also in on the crime--and blames the innocent doctor on duty. Cannon is brought in to investigate and determine what really occurred.

This episode deals with race, as the accused doctor is black (James Watson) and Cannon seems to be personally upset at the notion of anyone railroading this guy. He came off as very sensitive and dedicated throughout. Fortunately, it does not come off as heavy-handed and is a reasonably good episode. The only problem to me was just how sloppy the security was at this hospital--and drugs were apparently disappearing right and left before and after the robbery. Still, the show was engaging and well made--and worth seeing.
