entertaining a times
26 November 2020 | by braquecubismSee all my reviews

Many of the rescues are dramatic, and things like 2 trains colliding, quite a bit of staging. up & down sides of cliffs & buildings. they keep the stunt people & special effects ;busy.

much of the melodrama is pretty routine. what annoys me, is they are always driving & taking on a cell phone (pre smart phones) and they drink & drive, a lot of drinks or "just a few"- and these are supposed to be Rescue squad. Mickey wants to go out to a scene. they re at a gathering, BBQ. He knows he had too much to drink. Asks Georgina, have you had "much to drink". she says no. so 2 drinks re OK to drive. and he is too drunk to drive, but OK to drop down on a rope or fish someone out of a dangerous situation. about the divorce, Mikey, he was a cad but want st get back, 2 sons, is pretty pedestrian. I guess it gives his character dimension.
