  1. Sound more than a little like FX's "Rescue Me"? Absolutely.

    Scott's performance is totally believable, but that doesn't mean you want to ride shotgun with him in such a tired vehicle. [19 Jun 2006, p.37]

    It's a fairly entertaining show right out of the gate, though it's distractingly busy with a gimmick: Poorly edited flashbacks pop up suddenly to show what victims were doing in the moments before they suffered health problems. This could be done well, but it's not now.
  4. In spite of [Scott's] fine performance, though, nothing elevates this drama about people on the verge of death and disaster into something other than ordinary.
  5. 50
    The opening crises just feel phony and forced -- as does everything else, from the humor to the drama to the bleached-out colors.
  6. 40
    A flashy but derivative medical drama.

    This is a great show. It adds extra delight to a rerun filled summer.

    I think this is more interesting than tiring ER. I like the way it it seen from a paramedic view instead of a doctor. Gives everything a new perspective. Expand

    This is a great show. I never miss an episode. I will be so sad if it doesn't come back next season. Daisy H.

    This show seems familar because it rehashs many other shows. Wyatt and the ER doc, are Carol and Dr. Ross from ER. Wyatt relationship with his dad has been done to death on numerous TV series. He partners problemws with his ex-wife brings to mind Jimmy and Kim from Third Watch. All the supporting cast seems to be make of parts from other medical show characters. The one good thing about the show is that it will take up time from summer reruns. Expand
