Night Shift won't make anyone forget the glories of NBC's ER at the height of its powers.

This seven-episode medical drama inevitably evokes past doctor shows. But Night Shift brings new twists to the story.

The Night Shift... is lively and moves quickly. Some of the characters, even the most stereotypical, are interesting and engaging.

It's the kind of manipulative, boilerplate material that you could use as a teaching tool at the school for TV hacks, in a seminar called "How to Be Bland and Formulaic." It is definitively generic.

The cast here is decent, especially Flint and Rodriguez, but the writing is unforgivably bad.

If a TV show goes over the top too often, it's eventually going to bump its head on the ceiling. And then it's going to get really loopy. That's what happens to NBC's new medical series The Late Shift.

NBC's The Night Shift delivers yet another standard procedure medical drama about attractive doctors and their ongoing sexual tension with one another.

The problem is that the bulk of the action and conflict are built around TC, who is a parody of a cliché of a stereotype.

The canned drama in The Night Shift fails to inject any new life into this very worn and tired genre.

Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Its hero is so obnoxiously awesome and self-righteous that I could only make it through half of the whopping eight episodes NBC sent out for review.
