I would 10/10 recommend this show to anyone who loves to get in a good cry, an occasional giggle, and experience a show that will have you on the edge of your seat for a mere 42 minutes.

It's so entertaining that you can't believe the hour is over and you also can't look away or you miss something important, so tape it, too, so you can go back and watch again...

When I was in intensive care every time I came to I panicked because I thought I was paralyzed because I could not move my left leg.

Really intense and well done!

These and more stories combine with the influx of patients to make compelling drama that holds your interests from start to finish.

The show has become so very predictable and really has nothing to offer me anymore.

It's intense, it has a lot of heart, it has some comedic and witty lines thrown in, it's really well-acted, and it feels very organic.

Interesting and entertaining show to me.

Stunning idiots of whatever critics reviewed this negatively.

it is so watery that I had to turn off (after trying hard) after 4-5 episodes.

I was on the edge of my seat the whole episode, and I also alternated between laughter and tears of happiness for the characters who found truth, worth, focus, and love all in one hour.

It's just the drama I need to watch when I ache for an intense show with great stories.

It is well acted, has engaging story lines, likeable characters, and is extremely well directed and produced.

The overacting, the obvious over intensity, the dull witted performance of the cast was shocking to say the least.

This was absolutely awful and a waste of the time in my life that I will never get back.

It was an amazing way both to portray the patient's medical condition (visions) and to make the very real point that the profound professionalism and intense training of ER professionals makes for a genuine and intricate choreography inside the chaos that the uninformed eye sees.

I love the intense fast paced high energy.

The scripts have gone downhill and are always trying to tug at your heartstrings to a degree that is simply unbearable.

This for me is a must-see, every week, and see the episodes time and time again cause you see something new every time you watch it and it is fulfilling and enjoyable.

All episodes keep you on the edge of your seat.

I really like the show as 4 new doctors are thrust into an intense ER setting that is nothing short of chaotic.

I love this show more than I liked ER because it is more fast paced and goes a bit crazier than ER did.

This show has what every other medical show is missing---it is fast paced from the time it starts to the time it ends.

It was boring.

Derivative, formulatic, cliché', boring, dull, tedious, unimaginative.

The narrative is well paced and the plot lines change weekly to keep the show engaging.

In conclusion it is a worth watching program.

The show is incredibly fast paced.

With Code Black, CBS scores and unexpected "slam dunk!

Every medical cliché ever used .

There is a sense of involvement in this series that is very rare, you get immersed in every episode very easily and it can get pretty emotional.

In a real level 1 trauma ER there simply isn't time for all the interpersonal situations/interactions, staff's dramatic emotional meltdowns, cramped environments, as well as confusion/lack of communication.

Having learned my lesson, will be enjoying the past seasons at a slower pace while I follow the current season at the usual weekly pace.

This show is a great fast paced medical drama with strong characters.

Engaging throughout every episode.

If you want to be bored, while getting a headache, this is the show for you.

Also that the show is so fast paced.

Totally worth watching.
