NOT A COPY
22 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

It has been said so many times that this Spanish TV series is a cheep copy of "ER" (known as "Urgencias" in Spanish TV) that many people go on saying that this is not a serious TV production.

People is right when they say "ER" was released long before this one, and, OK, "Hospital Central" is far less expensive than the American TV series, but that doesn't mean this is a bad Spanish clon of "ER". I would say that "Hospital Central" is much more entertaining and easy understanding than the American series, and I wouldn't even say this is a "version" of "ER", because I think this TV series is quite original and no character on it remains any of the American series. And there's no need to say that stories told in "Hospital Central" are very different from "ER"'s ones, in this series you don't get lost while trying to understand what happened to the people in the hospital, and you're not always hearing strange vocabulary from the doctors and nurses. This series has another good point, it is not as over dramatized as "ER" and stories don't usually get so melodramatic as in the American series.

The cast in "Hospital Central" is quite good: María Casal (Elisa) and Jordi Rebellón (Vilches) give good performances, and not so well-known actors Ángel Pardo (Rusti) and Antonio Zabálburu (Javier) are also good. The series has improved since Alicia Borrachero (Cruz) and Leticia Dolera (Miriam) are part of the cast. Maybe Amaia Lizarralde (Cristina) and Rosa Mariscal (Andrea) give less relaxed performances, but they are not as bad as it is said. The cast in this TV series deserve better reviews from newspapers.

Some people must stop and think, if this series has over 5 million viewers every week it can't be as bad as they say. I would give it 8/10.
