* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Oh so very much.
** 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."

Added DiffLines:

** This is entirely TruthInTelevision. Paramedics rarely if ever get patient follow-ups, and only if it's a truly significant case. Patient care in EMS is totally transitory.


* DidNotDoTheResearch: Oh, so many examples of it. The EMS and Rescue community absolutely <i>hated</i> this show with a passion, because unlike it's spiritual father, Emergency!, it went so over the top it wasn't even funny. Fire Chiefs and EMS Directors around the nation actually wrote letters to NBC demanding it to be canceled because it gave them a bad image to the community at large.
