Medical dramas, oh how they are aplenty. Some are good, some are bad, some are just plain mediocre to the point where you simply don't care what happens to anyone. But I gave Boston Medical a chance and I like it. A lot. Some of the scenes are truly graphic and disturbing and will definitely leave an impact on you, but it's the emotions and personal struggles that these men and women go through that makes the show poignant and care for their lives. It's hard not to care because these people for the most part are in real situations unlike those that are portrayed in such shows(ER and Gray's Anatomy comes to mind). With that being said, this was quite a nice surprise amidst the mid-season replacements were are being treated to. This is as real as it gets. Like to see more of this ilk on cable.
