Trauma is a medical drama with a difference. This show follows a group of EMT's for the San Francisco Fire Department who are doing their duty in saving lives form various causes be they accidental or medical related.
The crew themselves however have their own personal flaws & issues that somehow do not impede their duties, but at least they aren't as self-absorbed like those "phonies" in ABC's Grey's Anatomy who care more for their sexual urges than their patients' well-being.
I was saddened to hear that NBC had canceled this gripping drama that hasn't been seen in a medical show since Emergency(1972-77).
I guess viewers would rather see fairytale medical shows like Grey's Anatomy than REAL medical drama.
