This show is based on the award-winning documentary of the same name. This medical drama follows the staff in an extremely busy emergency room as they cope with a staggering amount of patients, which oftentimes outweighs the hospital's resources, resulting in a code black.
The only word that comes to mind when I think about this show is . . . wow. It's so powerful. It's so beautiful. It's such a great show.
Given the genre being medical, in my honest opinion, I find this medical drama to be far superior for several reasons. For example:
1) We don't get the cliche stories of doctors sleeping around.
2) The medical cases are interesting almost all the time.
3) The main cast is great.
4) The directing is awesome. I can only imagine how difficult it must be to direct a show with such a chaotic environment.
5) This one builds of #4 - I love the environment that this show is try to depict. I have seen the documentary that it is based off and it is really admirable to see that they are trying to show this environment in a TV environment. Everyone should see the documentary. It is definitely a must-see!
I just love this show a lot. And I watch a lot of TV.
