Frankie, a doctor who's been a transplant recipient
24 August 2017 | by aces_handsSee all my reviews

My favourite show of the week (it's a tie with Utopia). Alright, I'm a sucker for beautiful women, especially, beautiful women who can play character roles. There is a separate review that wants to critique the hospital procedures. Me, I'm just gobsmacked to see innards exposed and organs such as a beating heart exposed and held in a surgeon's hands. The storyline is emotionally draining, so my wife won't watch it. Me, I'm captivated by the emotional demands put on the viewer by both the life and death decisions being made daily in the hospital and the career-changing political undercurrents. It's an aptly named series. My pulse quickens in response to both the beauty and stresses laid bare.
