Critic Reviews

  1. 38
    Those of you who miss "Six Feet Under's" opening minutes each week--when you had to guess who would be spectacularly killed, and how--will enjoy the violent and graphic start of "Miami Medical" each week, too. But that's about all it's good for.
  2. 37
    What Miami Medical most closely resembles is CBS' equally retro and quickly canceled Three Rivers, right down to the pre-credit scenes that launch the medical story lines.
  3. Regardless, it doesn't take long to realize that "Miami Medical," written by executive producer Jeffrey Lieber, is long on emotional manipulation and short on compelling characters and insightful storytelling.
  4. 30
    Mostly lost in the Technicolor goo of the fabulously exotic mutilations and lacerations is Miami Medical's purported dramatic theme, the psychological toll taken on doctors whose professional diet consists solely of grotesquely lethal cases.
  5. 30
    With all these suds in the way, the premiere is muddled, so concerned with leading us by the nose to get the backstory that it never asks us to care about anyone.

    The ingredients in this old-fashioned remedy have a modest shot at working, but if the network wants to find a critic who'll deem such a mundane operation golden, it'll have to seek a second opinion.
  7. 30
    "Miami Medical" is every bit as pained as "Three Rivers," the organ-donor series that CBS tried to launch in the fall.
