Leaves something to be desired
4 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I give Cinader and company credit for continuing to come up with different rescues, but this episode is underwhelming. Roy and John are assigned as part of a ten-paramedic contingent at a USC football game and somehow manage to catch every call in the stadium that day. None of the stadium rescues are particularly telegenic or interesting. After the last rescue, Roy and John return to stadium by ambulance, walk inside and find the place deserted. The game is over. Everyone has gone home. Even the ambulance left. Now I enjoy a good Roy and John joke as much as anyone, but this was ridiculous because an empty parking lot would have tipped them off; not to mention a time check.

Best thing about the episode occurred before and after the first (and only non-stadium) rescue of a man in a tree. A woman gets into a van with her daughter (age about 6), tells her to fasten her seat belt but doesn't fasten her own. I wanted the girl to say, "So it's do as I say, not as I do again, right, mom?"

This is the first mention of seat belts in Emergency that I recall. Roy and John never wear them while riding in their squad.
