Loved the show. I am giving a rating of 1 because the sneak peek for Season 2 is listed at $2.99. It is supposed to be free because it is the 1 minute preview. I have reported this issue to Google so hopefully they will correct this issue ASAP and then I can change my rating to 5 out of 5.

I love how the show also shows different moral dilemmas in the medical field. Great actor to play the lead. not a lot of quality TV shows out there that has something valid to say, this one is one, I hope it stands true to what needs to be said above all even rating. you usually can gauge when the TV show suddenly becomes slave to just ratings, it becomes contrived and cheesy.

Season 1 was phenomenal, Season 2 however has not been made available for purchase in Canada, rather its just episode by episode which is more expensive. If it's made available to Canada, my rating could be changed to reflect such a move.
