Ok- middle of the road- till it gots worse. boring
17 September 2019 | by braquecubismSee all my reviews

Boring, unwatchable dialogue. Pretty routine procedural "rescue" EMT- emergency- like many USA Brit shows. BUT it really is awful. this is more about personalities than any action. As to the leads, personalities are just a little too cutesy- the guy who seems the lead male, on screen the most, not alpha enough for my tastes- I am supposed to be engaged, right. seething undertone of sexual tension, unfulfilled, a bit cliché. the Aussie accents- or is the voices, begin to grate on me. I hate the theme opening song(s). Situations, routine, but fit the format. If you are 10, or want something to distract you while you do other things. It actually gets worse. how can it be this annoying.
