Review of HawthoRNe

60 minutes

In this character-driven medical drama told from the nurses' point of view, Jada Pinkett Smith stars as Christina Hawthorne, the forceful-yet-caring director of nursing at Richmond Trinity Hospital. When a patient's care is at risk, she will not hesitate to violate hospital protocol, defend her staff against egotistical doctors or firmly stand up to apathetic administrators who seem to have forgotten a hospital's true purpose. Recently widowed, she also has to take on her equally important role as a mother to a willful, rebellious teenage daughter.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Like so many medical/hospital dramas this show started out really great. I'm actually glad that it only lasted 3 seasons. Why do they constantly make all the drama about the doctors/nurses? Why can't we just focus on the patients for once? I'd much rather watch a show about the issues facing patients having to face difficult decisions than watch a show about who's sleeping with whom or a character thinking they're above the law/protocols and not really being reprimanded for their actions like they would be if it were the real world.
