Action-paced with charm and heart.
If there's any indication that the fall TV season is shaping up to be something really good then "Trauma" is another candidate for another hit that gives the proceedings loads of gravitas and energy. With ER off the airways and other themed shows vying for our viewing pleasure such as Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice, Trauma takes a different approach as the rescuers are out in the field rather than the emergency room saving lives while also trying to deal with issues in their personal lives at home or when their on the job.
Sure, there's some nitpicks I have with the show. The first being is that there's only snippets of character development but the show is fast paced and thrilling with a jaw-dropping opening that will leave you on the edge of your seat. But there's also humor and charm that works really well within the shows atmosphere and little by little you'll grow to like the characters even more.
Even with Grey's Anatomy and other similar shows out there, "Trauma" mixes action with humor, charm, and suspense with likable characters and great storytelling. And it's produced by Peter Berg, the man who gave us Hancock, giving it a gritty edge that's hog wild in the world that they created.
