Nurses (Canada)

Recommended Posts

Did anyone watch the premier of Nurses on Global TV in Canada last night? 

While it wasn’t great I thought I was OK. I thought the way they dealt with Grace learning that the patient she was caring for and comforting was the perpetrator of the car attack was good.

I watched it and it held my interest .. I hope they really delve into all the issues that are going on in nursing and not into another medical soap

Watched it last night. Thought it was good for a start.  Love to see the development of background character stories especially why Naz is being called princess.

Thought Wolf would crack a Sinead O'Connor joke when he found out head nurse's name.

Grace calling her "boyfriend" at the end and it turns out that its Sav from Degrassi (!!!!)  and he's getting married so Grace is the other gal.

Yep I will be watching.

I did watch on Monday and I enjoyed it. It's a show that's really right up my alley, and I'm always a sucker for Canadian medical shows. 

It'll be fun to watch. I'm not looking for anything too serious anyway, so it looks like this show is going to be entertaining enough.

Anyone catch last night episode?  I was expecting Grace got fired because of the Doctor she is seeing, not what actually happened.  But I am glad it shut up the other nurse who was being all mean girl to her.

The girl with CF and her smoking really pissed me off.   I can understand her anger but smoking to kill her lungs sooner was overly selfish.

Didn't much care for Naz's storyline. If the case was that she was very wealthy, I want to know why she didn't become a doctor instead of a nurse?

I did like the ex football player's background story.

Well, I guess I should be glad that Wolf isn't a drug addict, like so many other shows go for. I guess him having leukemia is a decent enough twist on an old trope. But yeah, smoking CF girl was annoying me to no end. Girl, get off the smokes! 

Naz's reveal was really weird. So, she never learned how to make a bed, she pawned off those responsibilities to others in school and...ok? I can't say that I cared for it.

Other main chick who's not Naz or Grace is awful. I really don't care about her; I don't even remember her name! And she's dating Wolf, right? It's hard to really tell because most of the time, they don't seem like a couple. 

Grace's reveal was...alright. I'm not a huge fan of Grace because she's clearly the lead and has a very distinct storyline. I was fully expecting some other reveal in how she was trying to be a doctor first and then had to go into nursing after the incident in the OR. She just seemed to be acting like a doctor a lot of the time. 

Keon's story was alright. But is he really on his way to hook up with Maryse from Shadowhunters? Similarly to Grace hooking up with the doctor dude. I figure once two characters get stuck on the same rotation with the exact same doctors that it's likely a hook-up/relationship set-up. With both of them working with the same doctors two episodes in a row now, it's also just very obvious what they're going to do.

Yeah, half the kids going off to college/university these days don't know how to make beds! Hell, even nurses need to learn hospital corners; it's not like they're born with the innate ability.

Also nurses aren't usually making beds anymore.  If the show wants to be current they need to make sure they emphasize that nowadays there are usually very clearly defined duties that registered nurses do as opposed to practical nurses and nursing assistants (who have different titles depending on province and/or hospital).

Caught epsiode 3 after I watched The Good Doctor. So my Monday nights are now medical overload!

P.S. - I did not learn these people's character names. I had to IMDB them.

Colour me surprised that Ashley (snakry mean nurse) isn't Wolf's gf but just his roommate and a former Christian because she turned gay and doesn't pray anymore?!?!  WTH!?!?  I can see her becoming an alcoholic. She cannot take the stress of the job.

Nazneen's mom was a Bollywood star and she was a bollywood star as well? I'm guessing they are going with a similar storyline as Keon.  I'm guessing something happened on set with her brother which she then wanted to pursue nursing.

The merge with all 3 hospitals and bringing in Dr. Douche to terrorize Grace is going to push her over the edge.

Yeah, I had thought Ashley was Wolf's gf because I thought I remembered her first scene being in Wolf's bed? Or maybe they were just roommates and not sleeping in the same bed. 

As for her storyline...alrighty, then. It doesn't excuse her shitty personality for the first two episodes. I felt a bit bad for her losing her first patient, but...not so sure I'm all thrilled about her storyline with her new girlfriend. But we'll see, I guess. The series is still very early on so there's room for her to grow.

Meanwhile, Grace is a shitty human being with sleeping with a taken man and not caring about it. But with Dr. Sexual Harasser seeming to come into the fold soon, I guess we'll see how that plays out.

Naz's storyline, once again, just made me go "ok, and?" I need to see a bit more. I did like her scene with her mother. That could interest me more.

Not a whole lot of Wolf or Keon this time around.

I’d like to see more of Naz’s Story. What drew her to nursing?

I’d like to know what hospital has councillors for their staff available 24/7 for their staff to talk to after being hit by a patient!

If I had to put a wager on storylines I am hedging that Grace met Lawyer before he got engaged and he had to get engaged to said girl due to cultural issues.
