I was impressed with how realistic everything appears to be on this show, medically speaking. Days could take a few pointers from them.
I wasn’t too into the show at first but the more I watch it, the better I like it. It’s like Mercy, that’s getting better too. But then, I love medical dramas but am very selective about which ones. Don’t like Scrubs, Gray’s Anatomy, or Private Practice. They are too soap opera-like, where Mercy and MM seem to put more emphasis on the medical end of it. (It’s been driving me nuts trying to figure out what building that is but have decided it must not be in Miami at all.)April 29, 2010 at 5:26 pm #1256953tdogsParticipant
my DVR has capability of 300 hours on it – I never thought I’d save up so many hours of shows to watch but I’m getting up here in usage….…sigh…I’ll go check it out. What network, day and time is it on? I watch Mercy too, in fact there is so much on to watch – I can’t even DVR some shows – and I try to limit my t.v. watching…still have to walk the dogs, housework, chores, books to read, charity work, church, – I need another 24 hours in the day sometimes! I can’t imagine you ladies that have all that plus kids, grandkids, hubbies, and work to get time to even sit down to catch "Day’s" sometimes.April 29, 2010 at 5:53 pm #12572BonbonParticipant
once you have that kind of schedule and take a 10-hour work day out of it (once I retired), you come up with lots of extra time. I actually have trouble finding something worthwhile to watch. I don’t think there are that many interesting programs on, especially on network TV. I have about one program each night that I can say I really like. Other than that, I watch mostly stuff on cable.
I don’t remember what night it’s on because I watched it on DVR last night but it’s on at 10:00 (I think) on CBS.April 29, 2010 at 6:22 pm #1257453tdogsParticipant
You are right – medical shows are interesting as long as they don’t become to soap opery (that’s why I have "Days" ).
The reason I have so many shows to watch on my DVR is I surf/search the program guide on the t.v. for TLC, Discovery, National Geo., History Channel, Hallmark, Hallmark Movie Channel, HGTV, Food Network, Travel, PBS, HBO, USA, TMC, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, FOXNews, FOX Business, etc.,etc., once a week or so and see a show that looks interesting (i.e., watchable) two weeks into the future and hit the "record" button…then, I find, I never have time to go back and watch them so they sit on the DVR piling up – I keep some thinking I’ll get RTI (’round to it). It’s like I have a ton of books on my book shelf to read, and need to get to them too. Never enough time in the day. I’m retired too (almost a year now), but just never find time to watch ’em all.
I never go to the movies so I waited almost a year to see "2012" because it looked like an intense rollacoaster ride without having to leave my couch – watched it on DVR the other night…special effects were good, story wasn’t – so there’s a lot of shows that look good initially to watch but get deleted after five minutes of watching because the program guide told you the entire story…or they have actor’s in the show like "Mia" – unwatchable.May 3, 2010 at 1:36 pm #12651GrockieParticipant
and hope it gets renewed for next year. Was disappointed that they didn’t give "Three Rivers" a chance before cancelling.
