These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Somewhat justified, as even the real-life profession it portrayed were demanding it die and go away. While EMS providers don't need an excuse to drink, there was actually a drinking game on the JEMS.com forum to make an episode watchable.
The portrayal of EMS providers in the show was blasted by the fire and EMS community for lack of realism and "giving EMS a bad name."
Unfortunate Implications: "The Fragile Hour" at first appears to be An Aesop about violence (including both a case of Domestic Abuse and police brutality). When Glen tells the truth about the police officer, the jaded Nancy defends his actions when it appears he could lose his job over the incident. However, later in the episode, Nancy is attacked by a schizophrenic bum and Glen instinctively becomes violent to protect her, saying afterward that he didn't mean for it to go that far. The episode ends with her answer of, basically: "no one ever does - don't feel bad."
