Not your average med series. Good scripts, good actor, always ready for a twist. Love the characters and how the med and military sides are brought together. Very good show.

Hope it don't become another grey's anatomy……even I don't hate grey but it really seems like those show that full of handsome man and bimbo show in China which we call it "Qiong Yao" show……

A great series. It should never have been cancelled

I do not understand why this series was cancelled. I like it a lot. Good story telling, good actors. Tanaya Beatty was awesome.

Another crisis medical drama. But this one is hoping the adrenaline rush will outweigh bad acting and cookie cutter scripts. It's a pass for me. I give it a 4 (poor) out of 10.

Don't sleep on this show, it's extremely underrated!!! I originally overlooked this show without looking into but for some reason I decided to go back & check out the pilot... I'm sooooo glad I did!! I don't like hospital shows at all but there is something cool about this show that makes it so much more than a hospital show. The cast really makes the show too!! Bring on Season 3 so glad it got renewed, apparently they're starting production in a few weeks :)
