More realistic than you may realize
27 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a former paramedic, I cannot say enough regarding how accurate the emotions and dialog are on "Saved (2006)". And there are many small details that EMS personnel will pick-up on right away and enjoy: from putting on sunglasses at the first sign of light in the morning, to the dispatcher complaining that you've been en-route to a call for too long, to name just two. On the flip side, two not-so-realistic aspects are: 1) the near-complete absence of fire department personnel (though this is a secret dream of most ambulance personnel), and 2) Wyatt's nearly complete absence of ever wearing a uniform (rarely happens for more than a few hours before you get narc'ed on).

Each episode has a dozen, or so, connected vignettes; they're realistic and the characters more often than not say what most paramedics just think (but are usually too professional to say). In reality, however, most medics will not encounter as much drama in a normal shift as is portrayed on "Saved". But that is OK; otherwise viewers would have to watch hours of boring television before there would be anything worth watching. Ten normal shifts (a month's worth) might equal one "Saved" episode. A movie covering some of the same ground, "Bringing Out The Dead (1999)", is much darker, but also condenses an inordinate amount of drama into a shortened time frame.

I would expect anyone willing to watch this show will enjoy it, but the medics in the audience will laugh at nearly every dark joke.
