One of the few new shows I started watching this past season was on NBC and it was called Trauma. It aired on Monday nights at 9pm EST and it reminded me of what the old NBC hit "ER" used to be when it first started.
The show followed the daily grind of a cast of EMT’s, life rescue pilots, firemen and others that help save people’s lives in and around San Francisco.
I thought the cast all worked well together and for the most part were new up-and-comers that didn’t have any baggage carrying on with them from other shows and series.
Cliff Curtis and Aimee Garcia played rescue pilots. Anastasia Griffith and Taylor Kinney were ambulance drivers along with Derek Luke and Kevin Rankin.
All of them really made up an ensemble cast that worked well together and made for some dynamic onscreen relationships and character development between each other. Every week you really got to know more of their characters and were interested in their lives.
THEN NBC CANCELS THE SHOW!
Were the ratings that bad? I told everyone I knew about the show and said how much we loved it. Sometimes I don’t know how shows come and go on the major networks. I mean honestly, why in the world is "Ghost Whisperer" still on the air?
I challenge you to visit the Trauma website and go catch-up on past episodes if you haven’t seen the show. Then let me know what you think and if you feel the show was worthy of ending up on the cutting room floor.
