Trivia

Evan was originally written as Hank's best friend. Paulo Costanzo's physical similarity to Mark Feuerstein caused the change to them being brothers. See more »

Goofs

When the woman hank saved becomes enamored with him he says that she has Nightingale Syndrome but Florence Nightingale Syndrome is when the savior develops a strong emotional connection with the person they rescued (fairly common among doctors and caregivers). What Hank should've said was that she had White Knight Syndrome, a condition where someone develops a connection with someone who saves them. See more »

Quotes

Hospital Administrator: Well, bad luck rained and poured, didn't it, while you had our senior CT surgeon in another room?
Hank Lawson: To help me rescue a crashing patient. I made a judgment call.
Hospital Administrator: You made a mistake. A fatal one.

Interesting...
21 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kind of like House meets ER meets Nip Tuck.

I like it. I'll keep on watching. Hank is interesting and Divya is a welcome change to the bleach- blonde "accoutrement".

The medicine is sound "so far" and I love the "guy that got dumped getting a better deal" premise.

Most people would like to live in the Hamptons. Imagine having all of the wealthiest people on speed dial, in the Hamptons, paying you in GOLD BARS? Yeah...gotta twist my arm to get me there too.

His brother is annoying and the "falling for a fellow physician" is a little far-fetched but it still works. All of the eye-candy doesn't hurt either.

I hope it gets picked up.
