    Like any competent Bruckheimer, "Miami Medical" speaks TV very well. It spins the A, B and C story lines like plates in a circus act. It has reduced the medical jargon to the requisite bewildering-cum-authentic prattle.
  2. After the initial disasters, the rest of the show flatlines. Just as in the “CSI” universe, the lead characters are there to serve up exposition.

    This Miami trauma-hospital drama is marginally better than "Three Rivers."
  4. 40
    The show doesn’t have any of the expert pacing and plotting needed to make those segments fly. The action just tumbles forth.

    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.
  6. 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.

    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.
