Coma: Season 1 (2012)
Critic Consensus: Coma evokes some creepy images but the majority of the miniseries is not believable in terms of story development, dialogue, or performances.
In this two-part thriller based on a Robin Cook novel and a 1978 film (both of the same name), medical-school student Susan Wheeler (Lauren Ambrose) suspects foul play at her hospital after seemingly healthy patients fall into comas. Steven Pasquale, Geena Davis and James Woods play doctors at fictional Peachtree Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, while Richard Dreyfuss appears as a local college professor.
