Did You Know?


The title is a line from the Christmas song "Do You Hear What I Hear?" written by Noel Regney (lyrics) and Gloria Shayne Baker (music) as a plea for peace during the Cuban Missile Crisis (1962). The song was originally recorded by the Harry Simeone Chorale, but it was Bing Crosby's recording (1963) that was the most popular and is still played at Christmas time today (2009). See more »

Do You See What I See? (#4.10)
28 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a beautiful Christmas episode. The story with the blind man was pretty good. I must say it felt extremely sad. It is always sad when somebody is blind but it is so much worse when they got hope, got to see for a day and went blind again, I hope it is not over and removal of the tumor will be successful.

I guess we will see more about Carter's cousin. Which is good, I like drug stories.

I like how they dealt with the story of Mark. The interaction between him and the young man was very good. And it was not him who beat him up. Was hard not to assume that as he threatened the same day and how many assaulters are hiding in emergency room bathrooms.

The story with the old raped lady was pretty sad as well. I am happy they brought something like that to show that rape can happen to anyone.

And it was a nice proposal, I am looking forward to that wedding episode.
