It's not a bad show
12 February 2012 | by daysnetaustraliaSee all my reviews

I have spent the entire weekend watching the first 12 episodes and at first I thought it was a little like House but then I got over it. I like Michael Holt and I like that he reveals a little of himself every week. The menagerie that accompanies him every week fits in with each episode and the writing is quite good.

I know it's probably headed for the scrapheap because most of the good ones are but I hope it reveals a lot more of Michael and Anna's relationship that we don't know already.

I love Rita and while I didn't like her at first she is the type to grow on you and certainly would pull the group at the Clinic into line and probably get them the money they need to continue to support the community.

Good one! Well done and let's hope that if the show is canceled that Patrick Wilson finds another home on TV very soon. He would be sorely missed otherwise.
