Ex-spy/black ops vet (Or whatever he is...The mystery of his past is for the audience to ponder) Stingray (Nick Mancuso) secretly meets with caring surgeon Dr. Hal Forrester (James Laurenson) who is shocked by a dramatic rise in operating room fatalities during routine procedures at his hospital. After a sober discussion debating the facts over whether his help is needed our hero agrees to investigate.
Forrester introduces his undercover operative to the other surgeons as Dr. Michael Rostelli and claims he is visiting from Chicago to observe, consult and compare methods over a short time. Though such arrangements are common in hospitals around the world several of Forrester's colleagues are immediately suspicious of the outsider looking over their shoulders. Stingray happens to be adept in the extreme at passing himself off as whatever he claims to be.
I'd have to include spoilers to detail a glaring continuity error and a massive stretch in believability so I won't but after a certain point, specifically an operating room scene featuring the hero, what is here has credibility only for the legally blind, blacked out drunk or mentally retarded. You can only ask so much of an audience. They know what they see and if they doubt something they can rewind and watch again.
Though many exteriors were shot in Los Angeles which is where the show was set much of it was shot in Calgary. The scene in which Ray Wise's character mentions the 12th Street Bridge might seem to betray that. Is there a 12th Street Bridge in Los Angeles? I know there is one in Calgary.
