Set in San Fanncisco this is full on from start to finish and well worth watching.
It all sounds most dramatic. That spectacular start further raises hopes. A disaster indeed! Instantly viewers are aware TRAUMA refers not only to patients but the paramedics themselves, they deeply affected by horrendous experiences.
Enjoyment of the series probably depends on how many similar shows have been seen. Much also depends on how one takes to the characters. Rabbit - a charismatic Jack the Lad, or an irritant far too full of himself?
Sadly I had concerns as the series progressed. Most of the stunts were great, but so much seemed rather shallow - certain characterization, some trite dialogue, space-filling "romantic" sequences which did not really convince. Towards the end major storylines disappeared and aspects seemed either tagged on or cobbled together.
Wikipedia reveals why. Apparently there had been confusion how long the series should be. Thirteen episodes? Then more were decided, the actual total repeatedly subjected to changes - hardly conducive to a much needed firm sense of direction.
A curiosity then. Fans have enthused. Others may consider the series but a modest contribution to an overcrowded genre.
I loved this programme. I'm not completely sure what it is about it, but I fell in love with the characters, and the episodes were exciting enough to keep me wanting more time after time. There should definitely have been a season 2. Heck, there should have been a season 9 if they continued the way they were going.
The series follows San Fransisco Fire Department Paramedics & EMTs as they battle to save lives in often austere conditions.
Both my wife & I found it compelling viewing and watched all 18 episodes in less than a week. It is far superior to any UK tv show of this genre and it is an absolute travesty that it has been binned. Come on NBC, pull the finger out and get series 2 made!!!
