Critic Reviews for Trauma: Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (8)

"Trauma" is by far NBC's best new drama.

Inane characters. Muddled story lines. Cheesy dialogue.

The problem with "Trauma" is that it clearly wants to be a 21st century adrenaline machine, and the pilot isn't all that exciting.

Maybe the pilot episode is the best that Peter Berg can offer, in which case "Trauma" won't be worth your time. But I have a little faith in Berg, in his more naturalistic style, and in his strong ensemble cast.

An expertly produced and acted series that stands as the most promising of the three new medical series this season and arguably the show with the most long-term potential, period.

The pilot went from "mildly diverting" to "boring as sin" in a hurry.
