"Heartbeat " review by Eva Diaz  4/19/16
Airs Wednesdays 8/7c on NBC

I like medical shows, so I thought I would see if I wanted to add this one to the lineup of shows I watch.  The show centers around cardiac surgeon Alexandra Panettiere (Melissa George), who  tries to balance her career with raising her two children, as well as a boyfriend (Dave Annable) and an unrequited love, who is also her mentor (Don Hany).  To top it off, Alex's best friend is her ex-husband who is gay.  Her life is very complicated, yet she still is a great doctor, who cares about and fights to get her patients the best care possible. 

I like George's take on the character of Alex' it reminds me of a cross between Ally MCBeal and Dr. House because she always solves the mystery of what is ailing her patients.  From what I have seen so far, she always saves her patients.   I like the show because it takes on uncommon medical problems, so I learn  something every time I watch the show.  The one way that the show needs a bit of work is that it has a large cast.  So far it hasn't taken the time to develop the stories of the other cast members .  The show also moves a bit too fast and needs to slow down just a little bit so that viewers have time to care about the characters.  I give this show 3 out of 5  stars.

We need more episode guide recap writers, article writers, MS FrontPage and Web Expression users, graphics designers, and more, so please email us if you can help out!  More volunteers always needed!  Thanks!
