Good enough Medical Drama from Australia
28 July 2017 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

I think its the 3rd time in a review that I'm mentioning that I am an actual MD and I'm always very critical about medical dramas. (You can read such a review in "Pure Genius", a ridiculous medical melodrama that I think I'm pretty much responsible for its unavoidable doom and cancellation).

Pulse is in its essence a more serious medical drama. I recognize many elements that are close to reality, despite the fact that some of them may appear exaggerated for dramatic purposes...

It is (very) realistic for young doctors to be and act more emotional than they should be. To feel empathy. To ...fall in love with their superiors. You have to learn to be more emotionally detached, so to be more efficient, more professional. It's also very realistic that young doctors have to stand-up for themselves if they want to learn. No one will take your hand and show things to you if you don't chase it, or even demand it.

On the opposite side of the ladder, the heads of medical departments have to fight with the healthcare system all the time. They have to take tough decisions and to deal with their consequences in order to be fair and ethically correct, as they possibly can be.

The cast is good enough, so is the acting with transparent performances which helps to learn the main characters quickly and follow them to their personal and professional journey.

The darker low-contrast photography adds to the realism and the music, mostly with a single guitar seems suitable.

Overall: Good medical drama. If it doesn't turn to a melodrama or jump the shark in the later episodes, it would be a nice show to watch.
