Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Saving Hope Was Magnificent! In Tonight’s Episode, A Virus Breaks Out At The Hospital, Which Causes The Hospital To Be Out Under Quarantine. A Sizeable Amount Of The Hospital Staff Are Put Into Isolation, Due To Exposure To The Virus. An Infectious Disease Expert Is Called In, And He Ultimately Says That The Virus Is Only Active For 12 Hours. The 12 Hours Passes, And The Hospital Resumes It’s Normal Routine. Some Of The Staff Was Infected By The Virus, But The All Became Well, Again. Tonight’s Episode Had An Unusual Amount Of Romance In It. New Relationships Started, And Old Ones Ended. I’ve Been A Fan Of The Show Since The 2nd Episode Of The Season, And I’m Beginning To Like It Even More, As Each Episode Passes. I’m Pretty Sure That After This Season, Saving Hope Will Be Cancelled In The U.S., As The Ratings Have Been Poor. However, The Show Has Already Been Renewed For A Second Season, In Canada. Overall, I Would Absolutely Recommend Saving Hope. Watch Saving Hope Live: Thursday’s At 9/8C. On NBC.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Saving Hope Was Great! In Tonight’s Episode, Alex Had To Deal With Being Demoted. Also, The Hospital Planned To Replace Charlie. In Tonight’s Episode, Dana Took Joel To Her Hometown With Her, Where They Encountered A Woman Who Had Been In A Terrible Accident. The Woman Was One Of Dana’s Childhood Friends.

Tonight’s Episode Was By Far, My Favorite Of The Season. New Relationships Emerged, And It Seems That Joel And Dana May Be Brewing A Relationship. I’ve Been A Fan Of Saving Hope Since The 2nd Episode, And I’m Becoming An Even Bigger Fan, As The Season Progresses. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Saving Hope. Watch Saving Hope Live: Thursday’s At 9/8C. On NBC.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Saving Hope Was Great! In Tonight’s Episode, Charlie Begin Questioning Whether He Would Survive Or Not. Alex Continued To Express Her Belief (And Faith) In Charlie’s Survival. Tonight, Charlie Began To Question If He Hasn’t Passed On Yet, Due To Unfinished Business. I Continue To Love This Show Because It’s Able To Adequately Mix In A Supernatural Back Story, Along With A Solid Medical Setting. I Continue To Love This Show, And I Can’t Wait To Become Further Engrossed In The Season. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Saving Hope. Watch Saving Hope Live: Thursday’s At 9/8C. On NBC.

There’s No Word Of A Second Season For Saving Hope Here In The U.S. I Highly Expect The Show To Be Cancelled After This Season, In The U.S. Good Canadian Viewers Of The Show, Saving Hope Has Officially Been Renewed For A Second Season, In Canada.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Saving Hope Was Thrilling! I Continue To Love How The Show Puts A Unique Twist On The Average Medical Drama, By Adding Charlie’s Experience To The Equation. Tonight’s Episode Really Took A Serious Tone, And Used Heavy Doses Of Suspense. To Me, This Was Great! Tonight’s Episode Left A Huge Cliffhanger At The End, By Leaving Viewers Guessing Whether Charlie Will Survive Or Not. I’m Really Becoming A Fan Of The Series, But Sadly, I Feel That This Will Be It’s One And Only Season. I Don’t Expect The Show To Get A Second Season, As It’s Not A Huge Hit Here In The U.S., And It’s Just Not Getting The Ratings. However, I Do Feel That The Show Will Continue With A Second Season In Canada, Where It Is Produced, And Where It’s Getting The Ratings. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Saving Hope. Watch Saving Hope Live: Thursday’s At 9/8C. On NBC.

Review:

Wow, Tonight’s Episode Of Saving Hope Was Phenomenal! I Love The Mysterious Afterlife Premise Of The Show, But I Also Like How It  Takes On The Role Of Traditional Medical Dramas. The Show Is Somewhat Like A Combination Of E.R. And Touch. Tonight’s Episode Also Focused On Charlie’s Future, By Introducing His Ex-Wife’s Petition To Gain Control Over Charlie’s Medical Decisions. I Hated The Pilot Episode Of Saving Hope, But After Watching The 2nd Episode Of The Season, I Immediately Became A Fan. However, I Would Suggest That You Don’t Invest All Of Your Emotions Into The Show, As I Don’t Expect It To Get A Second Season. The Show Is A Huge Hit In Canada (Where It Was Produced/Filmed), But The Show Hasn’t Done That Well In The U.S. NBC Is Notorious For Cancelling Fairly Decent Shows, And I Expect The Same To Happen With Saving Hope. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend You Check Out Saving Hope (While It’s Still On The Air). Watch Saving Hope Live: Thursday’s At 9/8C. On NBC.
