**1/2 (out of 5)
The show is about first year surgical residents coming to grips with being a doctor. Setting the first episode over one gruelling 48 hour shift provided an energetic framing device.
The characters are okay. Interestingly, each one seems to have a flaw or chip on their shoulder. One's mother is a famous surgeon, another kills patients, the model may end up feeling disrespected and Sandra Oh (from Sideways) may be feeling pressure from being in a minority group.
Weirdly though, I don't like these characters as much as the ones in Outrageous Fortune last night. The lead in particular seems to be very good but to suffer from that American casting decision of always having to make the woman beautiful.
Very nice reveal of the central character's mother having Alzheimer's at the end but milked for a little too long.
