CBS threw a gem of a show away!
25 June 2018 | by happybjcoxSee all my reviews

This was an excellent show. The acting was terrific. There were no "red shirt" medical staffers. Well established characters died, when scripts called for it.

This show didn't disappoint. CBS did disappoint. This show was poorly supported, under promoted, and was given limited numbers of episodes. Finding this show was tough. There was a long time between show runs. In 2016 it ended the fall season after thirteen weeks. In 2017, at the fall season it didn't show up, it was late into the tv year before CBS announced it would be a summer series. Shortly after making it's long awaited premiere CBS announced it was cancelled. By June 2018 plot synopses were already listed in IMDB.

While it was on we met medical staff of Angels Memorial Hospital, a teaching hospital. We met newly minted doctors and a barrage of patients. Rapid changes in staffing, politics, power and money kept things off keel. Like life, people came and went, brining their needs and talents both with them. Constants were grizzled Nurse Jesse, the man called mama, and fiercely compassionate Dr. LeAnn Rorish, who by default was known as daddy. (Mostly to mama, others did not address her as such.

I'm going to miss this show.
