OK first lets address all the hate thats been floating around this show, all I've seen from the people who hate it is whining about how its none believable and how there are whiny characters, but none of you actually watched more then 1 episode! Next time watch some storyline before giving a review.

Now on with the review. This show is about nurses who advocate for their patience, yes they do tend to go a little overboard here and there but people this is a drama, it's not drama if it's exactly as bland as real life is it? Hawthorne is the head nurse of an hospital that has as many different personalities as it has problems, the cast is solid for their jobs although it's my personal belief that someone should give the new people a little more credit then being a complete Bambi and not knowing anything at all, in all these shows they seem to just float around endlessly(they went to school too give them credit). As for the drama part of this show its all intertwined around lost love and new relationships, nothing out of the ordinary. All and all I give this show a 8/10 good cast, good acting, need some more plot points.
