Best of the best
27 January 2017 | by shortesunshineSee all my reviews

Best new show of all. Loved every episode and always looked forward to the next. Entire family watched this season and it only proceeded to get better with each and every new week. The characters performed in a way leaving you feeling the connections they have with each other as a medical family as well as their own personal life issues each and every one of them attempt to deal with along the way. The storyline and believable solutions as medical technologies progress in real life were very relatable to human medical issues we all face in the real world. Sad to see it come to a finale. So hoping it will renew again for many more upcoming seasons.
