    Collectively, Inconceivable seems a bit desperate and confused.
  2. 50
    It's not clear yet how well the show will balance the fertility doctor's high jinks with patient scenarios.
  3. 50
    Even with its erratic start, "Inconceivable" still manages to deliver a fair share of escapist, bun-in-the-oven fun.
  4. 38
    Has a lot of forced backstory writing.
  5. An often lighthearted medical show set in a Los Angeles fertility clinic, NBC's "Inconceivable" lacks the grit of "ER," the heart of "Scrubs" and the soapy shenanigans of "Grey's Anatomy," leaving an empty husk of a series.

    Utterly vacuous and incompetent.

    I really enjoyed this show. Only 2 episodes aired. How could it be cancelled already? It wasn't even given a chance!!! I'm so I really enjoyed this show. Only 2 episodes aired. How could it be cancelled already? It wasn't even given a chance!!! I'm so disappointed in NBC for letting this show go. There are plenty of other shows on their network that needed to be cancelled before this one. This is one of the reasons that I am done with watching NBC shows. Weren't they the ones that passed on "Desperate Housewives?" and now look at how successful that show is on ABC. Expand

    Hands down, this was one of the best new shows this season. I can't believe it was cancelled.

    Cancelled! How terribly disapointing! I hadn't watched TV on a Friday night since Full House aired it's final episode years ago. Cancelled! How terribly disapointing!

I might as well remove this station from all of my TV's seeing as how I can see all of the Law and Order I want on the 6 o'clock evening news. Expand

    I thought the show was great, I had been looking for over the past few weeks on Friday nights, then to find out it had been cancelled. I was I thought the show was great, I had been looking for over the past few weeks on Friday nights, then to find out it had been cancelled. I was so disappointed. My husband and I have had to face alot of the issues of infertility, the show showed what infertile couples have to face every month, yes some of the storie lines were alittle silly, but it can educate people that don't have fertility problems what the rest us have to go through to try to get pregnant. Please bring the show back on, like maybe on a Monday night, friday night is not such a good night to air a new show! Very disappointed with NBC!!! Expand
