Review: Supernatural twist not a safe bet for NBC's 'Saving Hope'

The new medical drama 'Saving Hope' on NBC features two comely leads and a lot of hokey lighting, but not much interesting to say about alternate realities.

There is something disturbingly symbolic about NBC's recent penchant for trapped-between-two-worlds dramas. Existing in a state of suspended animation itself — all the advertising dollars in the world couldn't make "Smash" a bona-fide hit — the network appears to be casting about for narratives that might provide the answer. In the recently canceled"Awake," a police detective toggled between two post-traumatic realities, and now we have the Canadian supernatural medical drama "Saving Hope," or as I like to think of it now, the "Coma Doc" show.
