At Angels Memorial Hospital, Dr. Neal Hudson must constantly question the decency of extreme methods used by obsessive training program chief Leanne Rorish, who is trusted and protected by the chief of staff, and cleans up her insensitive messes in patient report. Luckily for the staff, nursing chief Jesse Sallander manages to translate and explain explicit ad implicit instructions. Angus Leighton excels technically, but seriously lacks confidence, while Malaya Pineda's cocky attitude needs reining in, but they make a fine team, while composed Mario Savetti simply does well. Late calling Christa Lorenson is expelled for blatantly ignoring instructions, yet redeems herself by spotting a fatal risk just in time, and discovers a motivational bond with Rorish.

Needs production work
30 September 2015 | by mysticlySee all my reviews

Overall the show is a good concept, but the filming needs work. The lighting is too dark to where you can not see the characters in important shots. Also I understand that ERs can be busy, but the the business needs to stay in the background. Cant hear or see the actors in a lot of scenes because of loud background noise and bad staging. I missed a lot of what was going on because there was just too much going in every scene for the entire show. The final ten minutes of the show was done much better than the first 50 minutes. This is just the pilot episode, so hopefully over the next few episodes things will improve. It still is not good enough for me to give up my other show to watch this.
