I seriously question the rationale behind the ability to be able to vote on an not yet aired shows. Where do people up-voting or down-voting these shows get their decisions from? It's flawed!!

First medical show to do recussitation according to ALS and not just standing around and administering shocks. Kudos.

I remember sighing when I first learned about The Resident: "Argh, another medical show!". After watching season 1, I have to admit enjoying the show so far. The Resident is a medical drama that attempts to explore a darker side of medicine than we usually get to see on TV. Now there is a cliche boy wonder doctor, actually two of them, but this only felt annoying in the first and maybe second episodes. The credits of the last episode are rolling as I'm typing this comment yet I'm struggling to actually remember the medical cases in this season. That's because the show isn't about hospitals or medicine, it's the backdrop to tell a story about strong and stubborn characters, political struggles and the business of healthcare. And yet, it seems that they've put a lot of thoughts into making the show medically accurate. There are small changes they could have made to make the overarching story of season 1 feel more dramatic and flow better, but the fact that I find myself trying to find improvements for a medical drama tells me all I need to know. I'll be watching season 2 right away!
