Miami Medical

If you could take Miami Medical back 20 years and show it then, you’d probably have a hit show. Because then it might all seem fresh. By now, a bunch of brash young folks working in an emergency room, just caring too darn much, might seem fresh. So too might be the radical, possibly crazy older doctor who has been through things he’d rather not talk about. Or the desperate search to find radical ways of doing surgery rather than doing the obvious (although in the episode I watched, it seemed to me that what they ended up doing seemed the obvious default thing.)
Really, this is Generic Doctor Show #37. If they gave it a catchy name like Law & Order: E/R, it might have a reason to survive. But without that branding, it’s just another hunk of TV.
