Did You Know?


The first TV show since Nash Bridges (1996) to be filmed entirely in San Francisco. See more »


A recurring error throughout the series involves the medics (EMS) being first on scene and working alone for a significant amount of time. In reality, the police are usually first on scene followed by fire/rescue and then EMS. This is due to there being more police units, them being on patrol, along with more fire stations since not all stations have an ambulance assigned to them. See more »

sexy, exciting, original new drama!
29 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is the first Fall in a long time where I'm actually marking my calender not to miss some excellent new shows!I only had a handful of shows that I looked forward to every week (prime-time). Now there's at least five more that I've added to my list. To the point- The first time I ever saw Cliff Curtis at all, was in the latest Die Hard. He pops out of nowhere, and yet had this instant "it" factor about him. Never heard of him, or saw him again. Then I noticed during the new ads for "Trauma", that he would be part of the cast. So, that is why, even though I love "Lie To Me", something told me to check this show, and BOY, I'm glad I did! "Rabbit" makes the show, in my opinion, but I also found myself feeling the pains and emotions of all the actors. It started out with a bang, and left me in awe. "Trauma" has realistic dramatic situations, as well as sex, comedy, REAL pain (emotional), "edge of your seat" wows all around, and compassion. I see this show going very far, and I CANNOT WAIT until next week's episode! (Kudos to the female actors- they were superb!). Good luck NBC- so far you've won me over with "Trauma", AND "Mercy". Looks like this Fall will be a lot more entertaining than the last few. (Don't forget: We also have great new shows from CBS, ABC, and FOX- so here's HAPPY WATCHING!! P.S. For those of you that may think this is just another "medical drama", you're wrong. It's all about original ideas, as well as the cast as a whole- give it a shot! Thank You- Darkdragon8987
