  1. Sound more than a little like FX's "Rescue Me"? Absolutely.
  2. 63
    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]
  3. 63
    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.
