Ah, since I have had my head in the EMS sand lately (ie can we say overtime?) I did extricate it briefly to watch SAVED just to see what it would be like. Well, wasn't anything like what I expected. I laughed, and I laughed good at how STUPID it was. I agree with a previous post that it is way too much like Bringing out the Dead. I didn't know what was up with that. I half expected nicholas cage to pop out of the buggy ! Mr. Narcan dude - well, I would have liked to see him kick the medic's butt for that stunt (few if any would push enough narcan to wake 'em up THAT much - only if we were REALLY pissed at the ER that day :twisted: ) Anyway, overall, it was amusing, but due to stupidity rather than good acting. It amused me in the same way that BOTD did. Things I wish I could say at times. I just wonder when the ambulance beating is coming. I really really wished I could have killed Medic 3 that way rather than running over something....just my random thoughts. I think I'll watch round two before I get too evil and critical of it. As far as professionalism and reality - way, way off.....I doubt they'll ever get it right.

No matter how accurate they get in portraying EMS, there always will be those to critic it. Sit and think....it's being filmed for entertainment....They will never get it perfectly textbook they way all you critics want it to be.

The only medical background I have is the stuff that I learn off the internet, and I could tell that there were a LOT of inaccuracies in the show, so I didn't like it as much. As mentioned before, I really loved how the Narcan worked within 1 or 2 seconds, and the man-butt was a little over-done with the crazy John the Baptist pt. Mixed feelings about the show. :?

I still assert that it is better not to judge it yet. It's like judging a book by its cover. You have to let it develop a bit before we really can get a good opinion about. The intro of so many plot lines is a result of pilot-itis. Happens to almost all shows when they start out.

I also think that in all fairness it's better then the rest of the crap that has been out there. Beggars can't be choosers ya know.

Although I wouldn't mind seeing more EMTs in the ranks then having the show be exclusively Paramedic orientated. We exist too ya know.

I watched it last night for the first and last time. Medically inaccurate, and as far as entertainment value...........wake me when it's over. :sleepy2:
