Trauma: Season 1 (2009 - 2010)


Season 1
Trauma

Critics Consensus

Trauma makes little lasting impression despite its best efforts to dazzle viewers with life or death stakes and explosive set-pieces, weighed down by rote characterizations and a dulling lack of authenticity.

Critic Reviews for Trauma Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8)

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

Here's hoping you like loud noises and big explosions, because those are about the only things this medical drama has in its puny, if flashy, little head.

Sep 28, 2009 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

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

To paraphrase: This show might blow!

Sep 28, 2009 | Rating: C | Full Review…

"Trauma," is just a not-very-good medical series.

Sep 28, 2009 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

It's entirely possible that these people and their problems will become more interesting as the series goes along, but you can't tell from the pilot.

Sep 28, 2009 | Full Review…

Inane characters. Muddled story lines. Cheesy dialogue.

Sep 28, 2009 | Full Review…

Without stronger characters, thatadrenaline boost won't be enough to keep the show off life support.

Top Critic

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.

Sep 28, 2009 | Full Review…

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.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Trauma can't seem to decide whether it's a high-stakes drama or a lighthearted look at emergency workers.

Sep 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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