This is an amped up version of the hit 70s show Emergency!. There are a lot of similarities between the two, but this focuses a bit more on the characters and their stories, in addition to the explosive action. It will be interesting to see if they can maintain the excitement level going forward without blowing up the entire city.

sprspndx, That’s the one time being on the West Coast turns out good TV wise, is with sporting events. I can usually watch most of Sunday or Monday Night Football and not have it conflict with too much of primetime.
