    It's kinda like Nurse Jackie but with less dark comedy and more medical stuff. And Jada really does a good work in playing a nurse (just hope that she won't wear sunglasses, 'cause the good work will go away tongue). Reminds me ER in the good old days.

    I am not too fond of doctors-hospitals shows, well except House, but that's another story, and I only watched this one because there was nothing else. Guess what, I am hooked. Hawthorne character is unique and powerful. Found the show quite different from the average soap-drama doctors-hospitals shows polluting the broadcast waves.

    I watched this show and was impressed with the episode. I think Mrs. Jada handled her role very very well. The Medical Profession really needs more nurses like her. The sick need hope, compassion, understanding and someone who cares and Christina Hawthorne represents exactly that. I will support this show by watching it every week because I think it's a good quality show.

    I have to admit, about the only hospital show I watch is House. Now I have two. I can't believe how fast this one reeled me in. I like Jada so that's why I decided to give it a look and I was just blown away by the pilot. The man actually jumps, but survives. I'm still curious to see how the fight about the diabetic patient turns out. And when she got to school and her daughter made the remark about the dad, I was on Christine's side all the way! And still twist were thrown in, the nurse with the artifical leg: Very well done! I've already set my DVR for season pass.

    I think this is one of the best shows on television right now. I do admit, I think there are too many hospital shows on T.V., but this is one of the best (next to House, of course).

    I really enjoyed the pilot. Mixes drama well with comedy, The characters are original. Jada is awesome! I think this show has potential to be great, maybe be like The Shield and get picked up by one of the big networks... though i hope not because those shows have way more pressure and are more likely to get cancelled. But yayyy great pilot. I look forward to next week and each characters development.

    I was really looking forward to this show but it was very dissapointing.

    Everything about the show is generic and has been done to death before.

    The dialogue was awful and forced me to cringe a few times.

    But the biggest problem was that it tried way too hard to be emotional and it failed miserably. I'm not a big tough guy, I do cry occasionally watching tv shows and movies but this just seemed too artificial and rather offputting.

    I'll give it another shot next week but it really needs to do a 180 to change my mind.

    The pilot was pretty good and I was surprised. Will definately tune in next week. I am glad Michael Vartan has a new show and he's the reason I gave it a shot. Focusing on the nurses gives it a fresh look.

    To me every episode thus far has been great! Jada really acts her part well.
