    "Trauma"

    New show on NBC, I caught the first episode on Hulu last night. I actually really enjoyed it! Of course it is "TV-ed" up a little, but it was still rather good I think. Not much, well any, PD scenes/characters, as it's based on the EMS of San Francisco, but it was still really good I thought. It's much like an updated "3rd Watch" (One of my favorite shows), minus the Police.

    Anyone else catch it?

    Hulu - Trauma: Pilot - Watch the full episode now.

    Seen the previews and it looks interesting. I clicked on the link you provided and it says 9:00 , 8:00 Central on Monday Nights. I wonder what is up with that? They must have did the preview on Sunday night. Now that I am scanning the show as I type, I realize that I did catch it. I thought it was pretty good. That Tom Cruise type guy piloting the Helo needs to get a hold of himself before he kills someone.

    I haven't seen it yet but I may watch it tonight if I get a chance (on hulu).

    I loved third watch, and have to first two seasons on DVD. I don't believe it will in any way be able match what Third Watch was, but it still looks good.

    I was a huge Third Watch fan and while I generally don't get hooked in to the TV'ed up shows, Trauma rocks!

    You can obviously see the "like that would happen" scenes, the rest make up for it.

    I haven't seen it, and honestly don't plan to. I have several friends who are medics who say that they can't even stomach how cheesy and self-worshipping it is.

    LOL!

    This is true, but I haven't met a medic who wasn't cheesy and self-worshipping

    Just got done watching my first episode. a lot of drama happens in San Francisco, that's for sure! I thought it was cheesy to think that the SWAT team allows non-TEMS medics to just entered right behind them. Never seen or heard of this tactic used especially in an active shooter situation. Oh well, it's television, and it looks like my wife enjoys it so I'm sure I'll be watching it again.

    Wal-Mart and Target had them when they first came out. Season 1 came out last year, Season 2 came out in July this year.

    I'm sure you could find them online if they aren't on the store shelves somewhere.

    It seems like they'll be releasing a new season each year.
