  • This was a groundbreaking pilot and had a great "wow" effect but...

    Jack Web can't direct. He proved that in the pace, character, and structure of the episode. Nevertheless, Kevin and Randolph have enough acting chops to make it work. They are the best parts of the pilot. he Dr. Brackett character is about as likable as a wet tshirt in a snowstorm. He has an uncanny ability to be insulting without any effort. This of course was the dramatic tension between paramedics and doctors in the field; nevertheless, this was about as exciting as washing dishes. Pace is groaning nevertheless this was the setup for a great tv series that was always innocent and charming requiring not too much effort. Some will say this is too simplistic and foolish but considering how scary the world is today, sometimes dropping our tensions into the world of simplicity and charm seems like a pretty good recipe for a night off.
