Combat Hospital: Season 1 (2011)

Season 1
Combat Hospital

Critics Consensus

Attempting to be a dramatic medical serial, Combat Hospital is instead comical, combining clichés with a blithe approach to the subject matter.

Critic Reviews for Combat Hospital Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9)

It's too bad Combat Hospital is such an uninspired piece of work.

Jun 21, 2011 | Full Review…

Combat Hospital still has flashes of intelligence. Definitely worth a second look.

A smart, sedate Canadian production.

Top Critic

In spite of its serious subject matter, there's something about Combat Hospital that feels like a gag, or at least like one of those trumped-up TV shows they slip into real movies for the sake of comedy.

Jun 21, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Not bad, but not something I'm going to be rushing back to watch.

Jun 21, 2011 | Full Review…

If it's willing to be a little more creative and take some chances, there may be more story potential.

Jun 21, 2011 | Rating: 3.8/5 | Full Review…

The "medical drama" is far too paltry to sustain the series without ramping up the relevance of the war context.

Jun 21, 2011 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

Combat Hospital leaves no cliche unturned.

Jun 21, 2011 | Full Review…

It may not be the worst new drama to hit TV screens this summer, but it's certainly the blandest.

Jun 21, 2011 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Combat Hospital has accomplished what a few years ago I would have thought impossible: it has made the dramatizing of an ongoing war boring.

Jul 6, 2011 | Full Review…

Not the best pacing considering the subject matter.

Jun 21, 2011 | Full Review…

The promos notwithstanding, it's a low-key, well-acted pilot

Audience Reviews for Combat Hospital: Season 1

  • Jan 20, 2019
    Season 1 was pretty good except the brunette main character. I think if they had replaced her with someone else, it would have made another season. That actor alone ruined the show.
