Dale Loberger Dale Loberger Friday, February 21, 2014 6:50:35 PM I was excited about the show until I watched the first episode. There is really very little about the job in it. These guys could be cable TV repairmen or trash collectors, it wouldn't change anything about the story. Our work has fascinating aspects, but it is lost in this show. I'll stick to Emergency! reruns.

Shelley Weatherford Loberger Shelley Weatherford Loberger Saturday, February 22, 2014 4:56:46 AM I was disappointed in the content. Somewhat funny yes but very little to do with the profession. This was an opportunity to expand peoples knowledge about the profession but missed the mark.

Matthew Whitt Matthew Whitt Thursday, March 06, 2014 5:10:25 PM You are not going to see too much about the profession if you work in the profession. We all know what is lacking and what is real but the general viewing public simply wants to be entertained. If they find entertainment in the comedy and learn a little something about the job then I count that as a win. If it were a drama, as was Emergency, then I am sure there would be more aspects of the job but this is comedy and will be more like Scrubs.

Brett Humphus Brett Humphus Friday, March 07, 2014 5:29:00 AM Ok just watched my recording from last night. Yes very much like Scrubs! While some will be very tight-butt and find any little reason to complain and take the high road that really translates to insecurity with themselves, the show is obviously meant to be a comedy rather than a completely accurate portrayal of the profession. Definitely nothing like the debacle of Trauma a few years ago. I'll watch it. It's funny!
Robb Quinn Robb Quinn Friday, March 07, 2014 5:59:57 AM Elizabeth McGuire Buchanan It was pretty funny!
Elizabeth McGuire Buchanan Elizabeth McGuire Buchanan Friday, March 07, 2014 6:04:17 AM Will have to see if I can catch a rerun of it!
Matthew Whitt Matthew Whitt Friday, March 07, 2014 7:44:30 AM Brett Humphus You mean to tell me you did not enjoy that award winning program Trauma Brett? Lol!
Jim Ronge Jim Ronge Friday, March 07, 2014 2:40:38 PM The script was terrible, the acting was worse, and it is nothing short of an insult to EMS personnel. There are a lot of funny moments in EMS and they obviously did not consult with anyone in the field or if they did they found morons. Been in EMS for a lot of years and if my crews acted like that they would be gone. The disrespect for the patients was unbelievable. Anyone wonder why we have trouble getting respect for our field? Watch this and you will find out
Ruben Archuleta Ruben Archuleta Monday, March 10, 2014 12:51:43 PM I liked the show. I have been in EMS for 12 years from volunteer to Paramedic. I like the lack of true interventions and the addition of our ironic and often bitter sense of humor to deal with the stupidity and ignorance of those we serve and help.
Cale Myhre Cale Myhre Wednesday, March 12, 2014 7:18:08 PM This wasnt meant to be a documentary on EMS, I took the show as mostly satire and thought most of it was pretty hilarious. Call me unprofessional if you'd like but sometimes you have to loosen up a bit in this job. The "SpeePR" part was hilarious,been there done that. For the record ive been in EMS nearly 10 years.
Charles Phillips Charles Phillips Wednesday, March 19, 2014 5:40:49 PM I watched the first 10 minutes of the pilot and found this program to be the most demeaning program toward EMS. That's 10 minutes I'll never get back! Not funny and full of sexual innuendo and potty humor. Don't waste your time on this stinker! Stick to more programs like "Emergency" and "Chicago Fire" (by the way "Trauma" was awful too).
