    There is another thread going about this and I have to say upon hearing what it was about I had no interest in another one of those shows but I decided to watch the trailer a while ago and have to say I'll tune in. I love the quirky sappy love stories what can I say

    I was wondering if this show is worth watching? It is going to make it? or is this a one and done show. It looks pretty interesting but IMHO the concept of the show can only take it so far.

    This does look like an interesting show and it does have a great cast. I remember the one episode of ‘Smallville’, I think it was the second episode of season 10 that takes place in Egypt, and all the scenes between Michael and Erica as Hawkman and Lois Lane and they were great together so we already know that they will have great chemistry and Daniel Gillies is also amazing.

    Default saving hope

    I'm surpised to see that there isn't a thread for this show since it stars Michael Shanks (unless i just missed it, if so this could be deleted).


    i just watched it, it was weird to see Erica and Michael play different characters, and i kept just seeing the actors not the characters. anyhow i'll put the rest of this in spoilers.

    Spoiler:
    i found the part when it flashed back to 12 hrs ago, pointless and rather boring. but after that it picked up a bit. i'm definetly going to watch next episode to see where they take this, hopefully it'll just get better.


    what did everyone else think?

    I watched it and thought it was terrible. The characters were not at all engaging. The level of incompetence in these supposedly amazing surgeons was astounding. What malpractice! The lighting was so distracting. About half way through I was bored to tears. I expected MS character to play some role but all he did was mope and moralize in voice over. The critics have almost universally panned it, and rightly so IMO. This show is, like Dr. Harris, not long for this world.

    Huh... Didn't notice it.

    I watched it, it's not as terrible as everybody thought but it is pretty generic and at times boring; it may not be a super-big hit but expect it to be a success for eOne just like Rookie Blue was.

    Oh well, some can sit and knit while they wait for the death knell (press critics = those old women at the guillotine as the aristos were lead to it ), some of us can enjoy what time it has left I guess!.......I enjoyed it far more than some other offerings I've been forced to endure over the past few years and I'd be lying if I didn't say I want to support Michael fully (as I would any of the SG-1 alumni, purely because they've been such a part of my life) in whatever endeavours he chooses...

    I'll take what time it's got and be happy that it's a hell of a lot better acted than some stuff I've seen recently in the US, Canada and the UK, and when it's gone I'll continue to hope that Michael gets work to keep him and the family in home, food and clothes!..

    Oh yeah forgot to add....lens flare?...absolute nightmare I agree...get. rid. of. asap...
