    Wow, recorded this and was pleasantly surprised. The lead character is a great actresss and very cute too. She could use some meat on her bones though. Love the green eyes... :)

    Reminds me of the newness I felt when I watched ER for the first time. I certainly hope it does well. Wiht luck the lead in from DH does it well.

    I figured that the guy she slept with would turn out to be somebody at the hospital.

    For a while during the morning after scene I thought the lead was Erica Durance (Lois Lane on Smallville).

    I didn't see the little "twist" coming at the end, although the hints were there in hindsight. I was thinking maybe her voice over narration was a letter she had been writing to her mom. :eek:

    I thought this was pretty good. I knew as soon as George promised the wife of the heart patient guy that he would be fine that he would die. It was an interesting show, and I think it will do well.

    I watched the first half, but the medicine is so bad and ridiculous that I couldn't watch any more.

    I really enoyed this show. I'm not sure which part of medicine sneagle felt was "so bad". If this show does welll, ABC is going to have one heck of a line up.

    NBC - are you paying attention? Hello? Anyone?

    The ad's for this looked interesting so I set TiVo to record this episode. And I wasn't disappointed. I knew Patrick Dempsey worked at the hospital because in one of the promo's they showed him in scrubs.

    But like Firerose said, as soon as 007 promised the family he would be ok, you KNEW he was dying. But the scene with 007 doing the operation, I really didn't know what would happen. I was hoping he would pull it off and was disappointed when he didn't.

    I stopped watching after the interns took copies of the chart, but here is what I recall...

    1. They are supposed to be surgical residents...why did they respond to the girl having seizures in the ER. The ER should have handled that and contacted PEDIATRICS not surgery

    2. The surgical attending asked the interns for help for the seizures. Why not a Neurologist and ideally a Pediatric Neurologist.

    3. The Nazi resident is still just a resident...she should not have an atittude about being woken up by an intern in the middle of the night.

    4. Having a intern perform a surgery on Day 1 (July 1st?) is silly. He would have no idea what to do and the attending would not just be standing there and watching. More realistic would be the intern being at the table and holding a retractor.

    5. The interpersonal relations are so far from reality that it is absurd. Particularly the ideas that interns are slaves in wrong. It may make good TV, but it paints a poor and inaccurate picture of physicians in training.

    6. The same attending does an appendectomy and open heart surgery?

    7. If informed consent before open heart surgery consists of 'well, it's surgery, there are risks' then we are all in trouble.

    I am sure there is more, but I think that should be enough. I agree that some of the 'soap opera' was okay, but the poor medical stuff is a distraction and makes the show unwatchable (IMHO) I wonder who their medical advisors are.

    One more thing...surgical training is FIVE years post medical school.

    So, how is an intern supposed to perform an appendectomy day one out of medical school?

    Okay, I only watched it because of the name. My ex-wife is an Occupational Therapist (remedial physical therapy). We were together during her med school years and well, one of the books was Gray's Anatomy. It was the hardest book she had. I was curious what the show would even be about. But yes, it's kinda Scrubs meets Chicago Hope.

    Two words:

    Katherine Heigl

    I'd watch her read the phone book.

    I'm willing to give the show some more time... it's a pilot, and pilots tend to be universally fairly weak. The writing had a little flavor of Aaron Sorkin, and the editing seemed very J.J. Abrams (the parts with the musical accompaniment especially).

    It's a refreshing change of pace from what ER has become. I still watch ER, but it's not the same as it once was.

    I have never been one to let technical errors ruin a story for me. I'm not in the medical field (although my wife is an RN), so I wouldn't know what was right or not. I recently watched the making of Top Gun and the technical advisor was talking about some of the inaccuracies and he mentioned that it took him a while to accept the fact that they were making a movie and not a documentary.

    Bottom line, I liked the show and will continue to watch.

    Isn't her character's name in this show the same name as her character in Roswell? Well first name at least, not sure about the last name.

    Yes, my wife pointed her out (she watched Roswell, not me) and indicated that she was also Isabelle on Roswell .. but didn't ask people to call her Izzy there.

    She's tall.

    Overall, the show was "OK" ... some of the character and plot predictability (you know Meredith was going to be better than the rest, that 007 would promise everything would be OK [and it wouldn't], Dempsey's eventual position in the hospital [and of course, he's also really good]). The dialogue was pretty good, especially considering i felt the plot writing was weak. And the 'twist' of the mother at the end was extraneous. But as others have said, pilot episodes are forced into corners sometimes. I'd rather have Boston Legal back, but I'll watch this for now.

    Cute show - watchable if predictable. Reminded me very much - almost character for character - of St. Elsewhere.
