Goofs

In the episode the actors are seen inside an MRI exam room with a cell phone. This phone would have been attracted to the magnet not to mention erased being located in the fringe field of the magnet. Anyone who had MRI training would know that any of these items would have to be left outside the room. See more »

I tried, but I can't bear to watch anymore of this show.
30 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

I did not rate the pilot of this show highly at all, mainly because of things so many others have already said, like the way mania was depicted - where Catherine's perfectly functional at work one minute, and then the next she's dancing on stairs, and no one at her work would has any idea. However, I wanted to give at least one more episode a go just to see if it was just a weak pilot. But no. More drama, bad writing, bad acting, and far-fetched story lines (in saying all this, if this show had a different lead actress, the program would be more bearable.)

This show is so full of angst and contains significant parts where you can't tell if it's a comedy or not that I can't see how this show will last. I tend to suspect that a lot of the younger fans may not understand just how far-fetched and unethical some of the stuff that's brought up in this show actually is (e.g. the way the doctors behave - like how they talk about patients; the poor representation of mania; making a joke of neuroscience as a profession; and misrepresenting diseases etc) but perhaps if they knew, they wouldn't rate this show so highly. One could only hope.
