No Angels isn't your Holby City, Casualty or your ER style programme. What it does show however, is actually quite real to life. OK, some of the story lines are sometimes are a tad Exaggerated. This is no more so that Holby City or Casualty. No Angels depicts how life is sometimes on hospital wards, people make mistakes, people get upset, people use humour (sometimes in bad taste) to deal with really upsetting and stressful situations, something the show pulls off really well. The acting is fantastic and the characters are plausible. For most of the story lines I can think of example I have witnessed in practice that are very similar. This show does not particularly portray the nursing profession in a great light. However, this is not a documentary, its a drama, if was based purely on facts, my god it would be DULL!! This is a great light-hearted perspective of how life is for these characters (who happen to be nurses). VERY FUNNY SHOW!! Worth getting, especially if have experience working in this environment.
