Spotlight: Saving Hope

It's time for the second spotlight, and this time it goes to my current favourite tv serie Saving Hope.

I have to admit it has been a while since I've been following a  hospital TV show. I have never actually seen Grey's Anatomy (which I might have regretted at one point, but I can't be bothered to catch up anymore) and I have never seen more than a couple of episodes of House. I did like ER, though I didn't see that show until like the 10th reruns on television. I did really like 'Strong Medicine' but they only kept showing the same episodes over and over on television, really annoying.
In SAVING HOPE, when charismatic Chief of Surgery Charlie Harris  at Torontos Hope-Zion Hospital ends up in a coma, he leaves the hospital in chaos and his fiancĂ©e and fellow surgeon, Alex Reid, in a state of shock. Along with newly-arrived star surgeon, Joel Goran , Alex races to save Harris life. As the action unfolds, comatose Dr. Harris wanders the halls of Hope-Zee in spirit form, not sure if hes a ghost or a figment of his own imagination. Reid, along with her fellow doctors, press on to save his life and those of their other patients, as they deal with the complicated and courageous decisions that are made in their daily struggle to keep hope alive.
I started watching the series, because Daniel Gillies is in it, otherwise I might not even have ever heard about the series. I have to admit that Daniel is pretty awesome it in (and looks good too!). His character Joel can be a total ass now and then, but that kind of makes me like the character so much. He is the typical kind of surgeon every tv serie needs.

And yes I do like the series further as well, not only because of Daniel. The difference from this serie with other series is that they took a little paranormal in it as well, with the out of body experience from Charlie. It might make it less realistic, maybe it is something that really happens, who knows, I like the extra addition and the different look you sometimes get from it on whatever the doctors are doing as Charlie will explain it.

I have to warn, they really do not cover up wounds it the series, you get most of the time, full shots of every growse wound, but I'm really not the best with wounds and all and I can stand it as well so that counts for something at least.

Have you seen the show, planning on seeing it?


  1. yaay for saving hope, tomorrow a new one, a very good one to :D Sooo excited.
