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.
