'Miami Medical' - 'Pilot' Recap (Series Premiere)

Like CBS's other medical drama for this TV season, 'Three Rivers,' 'Miami Medical' is very earnest and filled with moments that strive for poignancy. The fact that it doesn't succeed is less a reflection on the network than the creators. At least CBS gets credit for realizing that 'Miami Medical' was less that the sum of its aspirations and planted it in the little viewed Friday, 10 PM time slot.

Unfortunately for Miami, 'Miami Medical' is like the world's worst postcard of paradise. It's not actually filmed in South Florida, but the fakey shots of the real place tries to simulate the locale. In the first few minutes, all the oversaturated sunlit scenes are replaced by dripping blood.

Like something out of driver's ed videos to scare the hell out of you, there's an explosion, then a truck crashes into a nice young pregnant lady and her husband, just when they thought they'd survived the explosion. And all right outside an ice cream shop. Thank you, Jerry Bruckheimer, for the 'FlashForward' style disaster opening.
