I practically never watch Gray's Anatomy or ER or those other medical shows, because they are usually so fake and far-fetched, but also just too frenetic and stressful to watch. I'd prefer a good gay situation comedy any day. But I could not turn off last night's (rerun?) of Gray's Anatomy's "Code Black" episode. The gist of the story: a patient in the OR about to have trauma surgery is discovered to have an unexploded ordnance in his chest. And the paramedic (a timid/brave young woman on her first week of duty) who has her hand in his chest to stop bleeding actually has her hand on the bomb, and if she removes her hand the whole OR staff will become "pink mist." It's sort of a reverse "Hands on a Hard Body" as one by one the OR staff deserts her, and she is alone, one hand in his chest, the other squeezing the ambu bag to ventilate him.
Of course, the stars of the show come back, and the paramedic is able to flee, leaving a poor young resident holding the bomb. And that's where it ends! To be continued. Arrrrgh.
I will not watch this show again!
