    I love her but what an awful pic of her, she looks sick.

    I live in Philly, where this is filmed and they were filming ep 12 last week. How do they keep adding so many people for reoccurring arcs if they are winding down? Did they get a larger order than 13?

    Epic Fail this will be .

    She also was Denise in Full House. That is the only reason I recognize her…haha.

    I’ve seen the first episode of Do No Harm and its pretty good but I just wish it wasn’t set in the back drop of a hospital. I would have much rather seen the main character in ANY other profession. Medical dramas really aren’t my thing and that might be the ONLY reason why I wouldn’t follow this show regularly.

  6. Mick says:

    The pilot is online (Hulu, NBC) and is better than I thought it would be.

  7. Jared says:

    I agree its like a second rate Dexter without the clever dialogue and if Dexter were a surgeon. The pilot wasn’t bad by any means but I’m not sure if I’ll keep watching after the pilot episode.

  8. Mark says:

    She’s going to be in the new Tyler Perry movie with Kim K. I didn’t realize Phylisia Rashad was in this show. That’s exciting. I love her.

    I liked this show the first time I saw it when it was calle My Own Wrost Enemy
