NBC Trauma

I was going to post a rant about the new Trauma show on NBC. I don’t know what I could add to the noise in the interweb that hasn’t already been said. The show is pure flash and trash, just like most of the television in prime time. I think the people with ADHD have finally grown up and are programming for the major networks. We can no longer see decent shows that actually have plot lines and well written words. I suppose that is why I still go to the theater, so I can listen and watch entertainment that is well written.

“But Rescue Monkey they have NO basis in reality, their medical care is so far from what we do on the streets!” Yes their technical advisors are in need of remedial training. Remember, this is entertainment not reality. You want a paramedic show based in the real world? Search for a show that was on Discovery Channel called “Paramedics”. This was the ‘COPS’ and “Trauma in the ER’ for street practitioners of prehospital medicine. “Paramedics” was a great show, I wish they were still making new episodes. Feeling Luck? Keep your eyes on the Discovery Health Channel, occasionally they play a few episodes. You might just fall in love.
