What Should You Know Before Watching?
One thing that is very important to know before watching this series is that one has to start watching it from the start of the series, as all the seasons are connected to each other, and to start directly from the fifth season wouldn’t make much sense. Since it’s a medical drama, there might be a lot of blood here and there, so those who aren’t in for that should leave this one out from their lists of viewing series.
The show has received a lot of positive reviews for its representation of the hospital and how it has some or the other flaws in it, but it’s rarely talked about. It shows the reality of life and how hospitals really sometimes do focus on money. People liked the reality it showed. On the other hand, people gave negative reviews saying it encouraged upcoming doctors to break the rules left and right and not follow protocols.
