They said it would be about Health 3.0, so I watched the pilot episode.

I mean, it’s based on a “true story” written by a doctor about Bellevue Hospital, so how bad could it be?

Well, you’ll have to watch my live-recorded reaction (preferably without kids or nuns around) to find out. This review from Vulture pretty much sums up my position with 70% less cursing.

Bottom line: if you want to promote a message of Health 3.0, do it in a meaningful, thoughtful way that doesn’t suck. Those on the front lines of healthcare striving for real change need real inspiration, not absurd and insulting sugar-coated Hollywood garbage that reduces the real scope of the problem to a series of lame fantasies. We deserve better than that, even from our so-called “entertainment.”
