    Warriors sounds a bit like The Night Shift, both being military hospitals and all. I like good medical dramas so hopefully one of these are good. I also hope they are more serial in nature and it’s more about the characters than a case of the week type show. On shows like ER and Grey’s, I’m never really interested in the cases, just the ongoing stories and relationships of the characters. A medical drama called Remedy (starring Enrico Colontoni, Dylan Casey and Sara Canning) is debuting in Canada in a couple weeks and it seems to be my type of medical drama. I’ve been losing interest in Grey’s (the show jumped the shark when Lexie and Mark were killed off) so I need a replacement medical drama.

    I like her, but it sounds ok. I wish The River was a summer show. Or a Halloween-specials show.

    Does anyone know if Reckless was ever shown anywhere? I know it didn’t get picked up by ABC, but on IMDB it shows completed with a rating.
