Critic Reviews

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

    Saved's ADD pace prevents any true emotion. [23 Jun 2006, p.61]

    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. "Saved" is a show with a good cast, interesting concept and a fast-paced, stylized approach that never quite reaches its potential.

    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]

    There can be no good reason not to bring this show back. It was an instant classic, and if it got overshadowed by "reality" TV, then I thank There can be no good reason not to bring this show back. It was an instant classic, and if it got overshadowed by "reality" TV, then I thank God I got to see the few episodes that aired when it did. Oh, well, at least there's "House". BTW, "Rescue Me" does not hold a candle to "Saved". Full Review »

    I loved it and would like it to come back. I am a paramedic and took pride in the show.
