Feel like yelling at your TV tonight?

    Haha, I've seen that commercial a few times and I'm just not sure if I can actually watch it... I can watch ER and Maternity Ward and nitpick them, but I don't know as much about ER and OB as I do about preemies so I might be especially hard on it. I never even watched Presidio Med.

    Though it did actually look like they used a couple of real preemies.

    Good grief they showed commercials for it all night last night on CBS the song they used was driving me nuts :chuckle I've heard it's a decent show, although I haven't seen it yet.

    I have to admit, I'm intrigued. I'll have to check back here after watching it to see what "real experienced NICU nurses" think of it.

    At this point I'm just a voyer!

    Bleah. I tried to watch this show a few times and gave up because it was so unrealistic. Can't manage to sit through the whole hour, not even to drool at Oded Fehr! Painful waste of a very talented cast, in my opinion.

    Let us know all the stuff you screamed at--I don't know nothing about preemies, so I'm sure I'd miss a lot of the errors (hey, maybe I could actually sit through this one!)

    I decided to watch it. Ok, it's commercial. They've got a freakin 30 weeker on a cold CT table. *****??????? No blanket, nothing. All the babies look completely fake and everyone of them has a full head of hair.

    I'm not impressed so far.

    Well, I totally messed up and forgot to set my VCR...but considering the reviews, I didn't miss much.

    I was watching that new show Mr. Sterling. It's pretty good, to bad that is unrealistic as well.

    I watched Presidio Med last night. I was intrigued. I admit a few tears when they lost the preemie. It was the first time that I had seen the show.

    The show was ok. I thought the neonatologist/resident? seemed a little too cold to be working in the NICU. It was very obvious the babies simulator dolls, but get real do you think there are any NICU babies that are actors or actresses? They did an ok job of compiling the many events that go on in the NICU into one hour. I think we could have a TV series on the NICU :-)

    If I remember:
    There was 28wk twins with twin to twin and a 30 weeker.
    (At that point I was wondering, "Who's getting NEC first"
    Recipient twin was in CHF, vented yada yada, donor was on high settings, blowing a pneumo, Grade I bleed both not so hot. 30 weeker was feeding and growing, room air, blah blah blah.
    So did you figure out who got NEC first? That's right! The feeder grower!!!!
    Now here's what pissed me off the most, WHY NO BELLY FILMS??? Hello???? "Gee, we can't figure out why she's decomping all of a sudden. Oh no! Her belly blew up in front of my eyes! Gee, her entire bowel is dead? Maybe it has something to do witht the fact I TOOK MY TIME getting to the OR?!"
    To be honest the lost me when everyone was on a warmer bed...for days and days!:chuckle

    I watched and thought the show sucked! Sure some good moments...but I've never seen a consultant do quite so much...I have worked with some extremely gifted and caring doctors however...And nurses. Didn't see much of the nurses.
