This short-lived NBC drama, "Do No Harm", was so atrocious that the writers of "The Simpsons" are, more than likely, already coming up with a parody entitled "Do No Homer", in which Professor Frink injects a serum that is supposed to control Homer's violent behavior but ends up having other horrifying consequences. The satire will undoubtedly be much funnier and more in keeping with the legend of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde than this travesty of a TV series ever did.
I was intrigued by the plot, but as I started watching it, so much was missing. Aside from Jason's love interest, this show lacks emotion. Personality disorders are caused by trauma; I'd like to see WHY he has mpd. And WHY Ian always came out at night. It would have made a great back story in addition to trying to keep his job and manage the personalities.
Critics and the public often puzzle me, and Do No Harm is a good example of why. The critics hated it and it was so unpopular that it only lasted two episodes, yet I thought it was pretty good, a stylish little drama that showed promise. Yes, there were issues; realistically no surgeon is going to always have the luxury of being able to clock out at a certain time, and certainly he had already caused enough serious trouble to find it unimaginable that he would be fired or jailed by the fifth episode, but if you don't think too hard it's all critics didn't just pan it as run of the mill or a little bland, which I would have considered reasonable, but declared it truly wretched, complaining about terrible writing that I never saw.
There are better shows on TV, but there are worse shows that the critics have drooled over. Too bad it was cancelled.
I was a bit worried that the same old DrJ/MrH myth would be boring but this show was soooo good!
It's really sad that they canelled... Networks seem to canel all the good shows (I still cannot get over that Flash Forward cancellation in order to keep V and then cancel it asap) and keep all the corny ones....
Which one is the last Ep by the way? Ep.13 ? (I hope not)
I know this show originally only aired twice and was cancelled. but I'm glad NBC decided to burn off the rest of the episodes. This really is a fairly good show. It does have its' flaws. I totally missed the first episodes and did not discover this show until a month later, but was glad that I did.
I like the duality of the lead characters Ian Price/Jason Cole. The supporting cast is great, except for the character of Dr Young, she seems like a character that knows that Dr. Cole is just to good to be working in such a small hospital, he's a top notch brain surgeon after all, you would think she would have investigated his background before hiring him, she should be more clued in. I just wish this show had a decent chance to prove itself. At least placing it in a decent time period and not making it quite so hard to find. For these kind of fledgling shows it might be a good idea to air the pilot episode on the home site before general airing to get the word out.
The series is coming down to the last episodes. The show had a great cast and the story lines were good. I think it did suffer from not having a good time slot. The writing could have been smarter, there could have been so much more that could have been done to lighten things up a little more . It was a good premise for a show. It is only in the last episodes that Ian's evolution is revealed. BTW is is hard to find these episodes on line too. I watch it on about 12 hours after it airs.
An awesome show that engages you all the time. Great acting by jason, I love those sudden transitions from jason to ian and ian to jason. Very interesting turns and story line of a great doctor who is fighting with his own personality disorder. very nice. waiting for its another episode and seasons.
I really love this show, I was so angry when they axed it! They never gave it a chance :( So glad the remaining eps are airing now, for those who haven't seen it, it's really funny - you should check it out.

An interesting yet limited premise, I personally though the show had a lot of promise.
I enjoyed both episodes far more than some of the garbage that airs in the US, and I think it shows just how dumb the American public is becoming when a show with such potential gets such low viewing figures yet a fat obnoxious white trash kid is everywhere you look.
I'm really enjoying this show so far! I like that it doesn't take itself too seriously and isn't afraid to let the audience know they are in on the joke. Last night's episode was even better than the premiere. I work at DISH and was live-Tweeting "Don't Answer The Phone" with my coworkers, which is a blast, but I ended up missing a few things. I always watch the episode again the next day after a live-tweet specifically because of that, and since it's on one of the four major networks during primetime it's recorded by the PrimeTime Anytime feature on my DISH Hopper. I'm really looking forward to a second viewing today after work.
