Ambulance Twenty Years Later
After the famous series 'Ambulance' closed for a long time, it looked for at least something similar. Alas, all medical series could not stand the competition. The viewing of this project began without much enthusiasm, but how to skip the next replenishment in the Chicago family. And she was pleasantly surprised. Of course we will never see the second Ambulance, but this series has potential. The first season I watched without stopping and was delighted, in the second about the middle there was a slight decline in the plot, but the authors quickly corrected.
Of the pluses, one can note an excellent cast, Colin Donnell (Tommy from Strela) as a talented trauma surgeon played probably his best role here. The image suits him very well. The same can be said about Torri DeVito, finally this actress has a successful role in a serious project. Dr. Will Halstead, who migrated from the Chicago Police, performed by charming Nick Gelfuss, has changed a bit here, but has become even more interesting. Brian T - Dr. Ethan Choi, for the first time the image of a doctor with a military background is quite convincing and does not cause rejection. Oliver Platt as a psychiatrist is surprisingly harmonious and charming. The appearance of his hero in the 'Chicago Police' has always been a pleasant surprise. And as I liked Rachel DiPillo, her intern Sarah Reese was absolutely real. Yes, all the actors did well, creating very lively images, avoiding both schematics and excess sentimentality. The head of the hospital, Sharon Goodwin (Epata Merkerson), with iron will and maternal care leads the clinic, the head nurse Maggie (Marline Barrett) is holding an appointment. Minor characters are sometimes so pleased that I want to see them more often in the frame. Another huge plus is that the series from Dick Wolfe, complementing the already existing projects 'Chicago Firefighters' and 'Chicago Police', whose characters are constantly 'visiting' in the Medicines and vice versa, which adds to the series dynamics and authenticity. Of the minuses, the medical part is often lame, especially in the second season, the series clearly needs a new consultant. Although, judging by the 15 series of season 2, he has already been found. Even the heroes have a clear deficit in their personal lives, but given that in many so-called medical projects this is too much, I would not call it a disadvantage. I recommend to all fans of the genre
