Tonight’s Episode Was phenomenal! Charlie Now Has A Purpose In The Series, Which Is Helping The Show Progress And Evolve. I Love How The Show Focuses On Individual Cases (Much Like The Hit Show, E.R.). The Show Continues To Satisfy And Entertain Me. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Saving Hope. Watch Saving Hope Live: Thursday’s At 9/8C. On NBC.

I’m Thrilled To Say, That Tonight’s Episode Of Saving Hope Was Much Better Than Last Week. Tonight’s Episode Kept Me Interested Throughout The Entire Episode. I Was Glad To See That Charlie Became More Involved In Tonight’s Episode. I’m Starting To Like How The Series Mixes Shows Like Gray’s Anatomy With Other Shows Such As Touch. Overall, Tonight’s Episode Was Magnificent, And I’m Slowly Becoming A Fan Of The Series. Watch Saving Hope Live: Thursday’s At 9/8C. On NBC.

Scott –

I’m Sure This Will Anger Many People, But I Found Saving Hope To Be Mediocre. Saving Hope Is Refreshing, And It Stands Out From The Rest Of The Medical Dramas On Air, But I Still Found It To Be a Bit Boring. However, On A Positive Note, I Do Expect The Series To Improve In It’s Further Episodes. I’m Really Worried About How The Series Will Be Able To Expand Dr. Harris’s Story As Well. As I Feared, The Giant Hype And advertising For The Show Ruined The Premiere. The Show Did Not Live Up To The Craze/Attention That It Got From The advertisements. I Really Hope That Next Week, I Will Be Able To Write A More Positive Review For The Show.

Sidenote: We Will Begin Adding Our Episode Notes/Favorite Quotes Of The Show, Starting With Next Week’s Episode.


As a long time fan of medical dramas such as “ER”, “House” and the short lived “Trauma” I did find the show to be refreshing and different. The story of a surgeon is a coma feels somewhat familiar which is good as kept it me even more glued to story. What I found most touching about the show is the various cases and patients as Dr.Harris provides commentary which really added to the emotion and power of the stories. The struggle of Reid trying come to terms with her fiances accident and the struggle of Harris who can see it all but can’t do anything about it is such powerful and moving story. I will defiantly be watching again!
