Primetime Show Reviews
Review by Suzanne 10/1/05
This is a standard medical drama that can't make up its
mind whether it wants to be "ER" or "Grey's Anatomy". Those are
both medical shows but vastly different. One is very serious and
tries to be realistic, and the other is more light-hearted and quirky.
You can't do both.
It is a good idea to have a show about a fertility
clinic because it hasn't been done before, and there are a lot of
hot-button issues you can focus on. The show spends more time
trying to shock us with unusual stories (a couple can't believe their
surrogate gives birth to a black baby! A fertility nurse uses the
doctor's sperm as one of the donors to get back at him for dumping her!)
that it doesn't concentrate enough on making it compelling drama.
I like the actors in the show, including Law & Order's
Angie Harmon and ER's Ming-Na, so I will probably keep watching and see
if it gets better. Luckily it doesn't face too much competition on
