NBC's new hospital drama Saving Hope begins with Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks), the pompous and infallible Chief of Surgery at Hope Zion hospital, and his fiancée/fellow doctor Alex Reid (Erica Durance) en route to their wedding. Before they can tie the knot, the two get into a car accident that leaves Dr. Harris's body in a coma while his spirit roams the halls of his hospital. Though the show promises to deliver a new twist on the genre, Saving Hope's focus on recycled hospital drama storylines and one-note characters feel more like a Very Special episode of Private Practice or some kind of mix-up of A Gifted Man.
Time to venture back to bloody ol' Bon Temps.
