A refreshing take on the medical drama genre
21 July 2012 | by (Lansing) – See all my reviews

After siphoning through many of the other Medical dramas out there, and being mostly disappointed with not really finding one that can keep you interested, I stumbled upon Saving Hope. Having been a pretty big Stargate nerd I noticed Michael Shanks, and thought I would give it a shot. Then I also noticed Erica Durance which as it happens I was also a pretty big Smallville nerd. So I was pretty excited to watch this now. The first episode was great. The acting was excellent. Erica as Dr. Reid is very moving. She is, for me, on a level above the rest of the show's characters. Not knocking the rest of the cast but she feels more engrossed in the role as the others. I have seen actors get Emmys for much worse showings. Michael Shanks is also very good. I honestly wish they would have more scenes with the two of them. You can sense real chemistry between them.

The rest of the cast is alright as well. Dr. Goran(Daniel Gillies) seems like he has real potential, but his part in the show up to this point(episode 7 for me) isn't all that important yet. He is a great actor and his part in the show needs to be upped for the rest of the season I think. You can sense that him and Dr. Reid had a bumpy past, but there is still something there and I hope they explore this.

Overall I think this show will grow on people, it stays true to the genre but it really adds a new dimension to it. It can be really sad at times and raises some interesting questions. While Dr. Harris(Michael Shanks) is in the coma he meets all kinds of different people who are teetering on the brink like he is, he experiences their problems and sort of guides them and helps them. You get a different understanding of what it may very well be like in a coma. You see his struggles as he sees everyone he loves but he cannot do a single thing to interact with them. You can just feel his want to reach out and kiss his fiancé Dr. Reid(Erica Durance) and to tell her he loves and not to give up on him. You can really feel that when you are watching this show, you can almost touch it, and I think that is what makes this show special to me.

And of course there are some squeamish images in the surgeries. It is a medical drama after all. It's not too bad but if you had little kids watching you might get some surprises with a hamburger looking leg or something like that.

Overall I think the show is a GREAT take on the genre. A genre that needed a spice to survive in my opinion. Great performances by Erica Durance and Michael Shanks are nearly Emmy worthy and while the characters aren't that developed aside from the main two, the show is young and still has plenty of time for that.
