I did a post about Alec Track from The Golden Hour as part of the A-Z challenge series, but I forgot to include a regular post as well.
What I really like about this series is the hands-on-medical drama
and the victim back-stories, that we get to see in flashbacks.
I’m not all that interested in the doctor’s personal stories, to be honest; I like my drama wrapped up by the end of the episode.
There are four episodes, all available on YouTube…as long as you don’t mind watching them cut up in several different pieces per episode.
I like the third episode best, it revolves around a toxic truck crash. A father and daughter are trapped in the truck, while several different people inside a community center are wounded. There’s a lot of drama surrounding a male Yoga instructor and his girlfriend, but the father-daughter truck driver story is the one I really like: neglected husband and daughter, mother who works too much and pushes the girl to excel, while never really listening to her.
I also find the sound-effects in this series oddly addictive. The crinkling of their flight clothes, and the sound of plastic being ripped open during medical procedures.
All four episodes are worth watching, though the medical side of things can get a bit bloody.
Each of the stories touch on relevant topics: like hard-to-spot child abuse, insurance fraud, cutting corners in the trucking industry and seat-belt safety, mixed in with real life drama
(the girl in episode two with the scarred face, is a storyline I really like too)
Richard Armitage doesn’t have a lot of face-time in the series as a whole, but his character is still very likable
Talented, respected, dedicated to his job. hmm, that seems familiar somehow…
