    The Night Shift - NBC premieres May 27th

    Did anyone catch this last night? I thought the first episode was good enough to warrant a second look. It's a bit like Grey's with a modern military spin.

    I thought it was formulaic and predictable. I found the story lines trite and over used. Can't imagine wasting another second on this one.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I liked it enough to try a few more episodes. What drew me in the first place was that the cast included Freddy Rodriguez and Ken Leung and neither disappointed me. I was surprised by the reveal that
    Click to see Spoiler:
    Rodriguez' character had been a surgeon but was losing his sight and had to give it up. I didn't see that one coming although I did suspect something when he showed more knowledge of a difficult and rare procedure and was able to instruct the surgeon on how to do it successfully.

    I think the only thing I found "unnecessary" was the drama that will come from the Love Triangle. Nothing good ever comes from that situation!

    My first thought was ER with a MASH twist... Then they stole that Chain of Favors thing directly from a MASH episode and that was it! Dr seemed a little superhuman to me... Industrial accidents, to Saving babies to spinal surgery, to punching out the boss, to... All in one shift! I'm sure that will settle out a little as we get to know the characters. I'll give the show another look... Especially for the summer when there's not much else on anyway...

    I just watched and enjoyed it...until I saw the previews that Scott Wolf will be on the show. He's not my cup of tea so I hope his role will be short lived.

    And I was happy to see Brigid Brannagh, formerly of Army Wives, at the staff meeting but then they didn't show her again. I hope she has more screen time in upcoming episodes.

    How can you not like Bailey Salinger?!?

    I enjoyed it well enough. Good for a summer show.

    Second episode was on last night. It's ok to pass some summer time but it's not really grabbing me. I was convinced TC was going to purposely botch drug guys surgery so that his heart could go to the cop who has his brother's heart. The multiple personality case was interesting but they didn't say what the trauma was that made him that way to begin with.

    I like the actress who plays the night shift manager, Jordan, she was on Royal Pains and The Good Wife.

    Regarding real emergency room night shifts, does anyone know if there is an administrative person like Ragosa always around, checking on things? It seems like that would be a day job.

    I still like the show. It's holding steady in the ratings which is a good thing.
