    If they incorporate a csi-type plotting, we’ll watch it. Our household is bored with medical shows, but we loved Diagnose Murder.

    Could be interested. There was a Canadian military medical drama called Combat Hospital that captured my attention for its brief run (though that was set in the theatre- in Afghanistan from what I remember). Fingers crossed this is decent and doesn’t just slide into bed-hopping soap like Grey’s.
