I really love this new show -- its has great characters and story lines. NBC should keep this show, because it gets better each week. I like that we are learning more about the depth of the characters, which is important. It could be another ER or Third Watch which were also spectacular shows..This show could run for along time because there are so many stories that could be told. I like how doesn't focus on just one character, but explores all their backgrounds. The fast pace of the show is what I love so much as well. We don't have shows like that since ER and Third Watch are no longer on. They have chose excellent actors to play the roles and they are doing such a good job.
Now it certainly cannot be said that this drama is an accurate
representation of life as a paramedic. If you think that's what it
should be you will hate it. If being realistic doesn't matter to you,
this drama has a lot to offer. Good character development and a wide
range of different personalities. Relationships between the characters
are particularly fascinating as they all have to deal with life and
death on a daily basis. Overall I think it's a well made show with some
very good and very interesting characters.
I approached this drama with no expectations and look forward to watching it every week.
A lot of TV shows and movies consider "realistic" as being bloody and gory or action packed. But this show seems to portray the incidents and the characters as I would imagine they would actually act in the real world. It does not tend to show the actual events that put the trauma victims in their predicament but rather show what real first responders actually see--the aftermath. That is a pleasant change. The cast is well chosen and do an excellent job bringing their characters to life. The story lines are a good mix of real world situations ranging from the mundane to the mass casualty. I do hope this show finds an audience and does not get canceled. It would be a real shame!
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
The most juicy, action-packed and sexy show without even one vamp.. At all. Peter Berg, the executive Producer was on Chicago Hope for years for crying out. He has directed so many great movies and shows. He knows like the crew what works visually. And to put messy characters together and make it work is great television to me. It is like all other shows. Either you like it or you don't. No one ever said anything about vampire stuff being realistic so why would anyone make Trauma a target? Finally when it comes down to it. It's fictional entertainment. That's it. Anyhow! In a whole other way.. I think it's great to watch something that isn't about rich doctors or dirty cops or other questionable figures. But basic people with basic problems solving them in basic ways. Shows that works aren't the setting but the human relationships.
I've watched all the episodes, and I am really getting into this show.
Obviously it isn't completely realistic. If you want a realistic medical show, go watch a documentary. That's what documentaries are for... TV dramas are for entertainment.
And entertain, it does. The first episode seems a little shaky, but afterward the characters develop really well. They're all likable and engaging. In every episode, amidst cool rescue action, interesting aspects of their jobs and lives are examined. Eg they explore the characters' feelings and actions when dealing with issues like homosexuality, accidentally killing patients, friendship/hierarchy conflicts, being exposed to terrifying contagions, and all sorts of other things. Something completely different happens in every episode. It's interesting, fast-paced and unpredictable. It's also slowly getting better; they certainly don't seem to be running out of ideas.
Basically, good show in every possible way. Except realism, but that obviously isn't the point.
OK, most of you who know how to do CPR realize that almost no TV show
accurately shows how to do it correctly, and Trauma is no exception.
What do people expect, if you do it correctly on the people in the show
you could injure them if they don't need CPR! Honestly you shouldn't be
trying to learn medicine from a TV drama. I don't understand what all
the negative comments are about. Many of the procedures are being shown
done wrong. BUT I STILL LOVE THE SHOW. WHY? It keeps me interested. The
injured patients do accurately represent SOME of what I see.
In my opinion the character "Rabbit" makes the show awesome, his mannerism and sense of humor is great. (Plus he was driving a 1970 Chevelle SS in the last episode, which makes him even more awesome) The quarrels between characters and the storyline keeps me entertained. I'm hooked on the show and can't get enough of it.
The writers do need to work on showing them how to do procedures a little more correctly and make it more realistic in the medical perspective but it is still a good show. Just don't expect that you will have EMT qualifications after watching this show.

Never let the Trauma Staff do CPR on you!
The story is fine, fast paced and - as far as one can tell from the pilot - well developed. The roles leave plenty of room for internal tensions and the characters themselves seem to have interesting backgrounds. That together with the variety of different settings the characters can play in the show has great potential.
But never let them do CPR or any other medical procedure do on you! Basically in the pilot they killed at least 2 patients just by giving them the wrong medicine or by delivering a devastating CPR.
So... the do need a medical consultant.
Trauma is a great show. I got into it initially by turning channels out
of boredom. But once I started watching it, I was hooked! It's
well-written, fast-paced, has great characters, actors & story lines.
It's exciting & funny & emotional.
I'm thrilled that NBC is giving it a few more episodes - it blows most other shows away ( in terms of "watchability"), so I don't know why they'd want to cancel it ( although it seems like most of the really great shows get cancelled prematurely, IMHO). Please help keep it going!!
I don't watch too many TV shows, but I have to admit that I really look forward to watching this one - can't wait til it's back!

I watched the pilot yesterday. I hesitated between Lie To Me and this, but my affection to medical dramas won. I watched it with some hesitation, because not every medical drama can win my love, but this one succeeded in like 5 minutes. HUGE SPOILER! When I first saw the helicopter, I thought that it will fall to the staff, but then I thought nobody would put a helicopter-crash in a medical show after the fabulous helicopter-scenes with the late Dr. Romano, but then it turned out that I was wrong. Somebody did, and I should tell he/she did it very well! That scene was fantastic! As I was watching the two helicopters falling down, I forgot to bite into my sandwich and said to myself: OK, I definitely will watch this! SPOILER OFF Anyway the pilot was very good for a first episode, and I wait with excitement for the next one. Trauma indeed has potential, and most of the characters seem interesting. The actors are mostly average, believable people. Nancy - I hope this is the name of the blond girl - is a bit too artificial to me, too much make-up, hair-product etc., but never mind. Cliff Curtis is on the other hand rules the screen, he obviously enjoys his character, and can totally make it real. By the time of the end of the episode, SPOILER! when they slept - or tried to slept - together,SPOILER OFF I was totally a "regular viewer".
