'Do No Harm' - First episode available on NBC website

Just a FYI,

The first episode of the new show 'Do no Harm' is available on the NBC website. The first episode is also available via usenet and torrent. It begins airing on Thursday, January 31 10/9c.

quote:
Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale, "Rescue Me") is a highly respected neurosurgeon who has it all - a lucrative career, confident charm and the gift of compassion. But he also has a deep, dark secret. One morning, after waking up disoriented in a wrecked hotel room amidst near-naked women he's never seen before, he knows one thing: it happened again. Every night at the same hour, something inside Jason changes, leaving him almost unrecognizable - seductive, devious, borderline sociopathic. This new man is his dangerous alternate personality, who goes by the name Ian Price. For years Jason has battled Ian, keeping him in check with a powerful experimental sedative. But now his - their - body has developed a resistance to the serum, setting Ian free once again. And to make matters worse, after being suppressed for so long, Ian is hell-bent on taking revenge on his oppressor. With everyone Jason cares about at risk - patients, friends, coworkers and even the woman he loves - he must stop…

Sounds interesting.

I am also interested in TBS Monday Mornings show.

Granted it's not scifi.

Though, IMO, the best modern retelling of Jekyll and Hyde was Jekyll with James Nesbitt. I wish they had done a second season, because the first ended with a good cliff hanger.

Yes, I totally agree with you. Nesbitt's acting was amazing.

I caught the first episode last night. It looked ok, kinda interesting. But I kept thinking I have seen this before, as I can recall parts of the James Nesbitt series on the BBC called Jekyll.

Still, I'll keep watching it, to see how it unfolds.

Absolutely, Jekyll, was fantastic, no makeup, no sfx, just an astounding actor,who could change who he was simply through body language and facial contortions.

But again, that's Britain, they go for the subtlety, while America goes for the blow'em up real good, and scare the Shit out of them...

Worst rating for a premier. Not even going to bother watching since it'll be canceled asap.

As they had the pilot posted a couple of weeks before it actually aired, I wonder if that had hurt it's numbers?

There doesn't seem to be anything new on, as it appears sports is yet again ruling the networks [yuck], or they [the networks] are spacing the shows out for the "sweeps" spots.
Febuary has a sweep week or two, as does March. Though I think "sweeps" is an old idea that needs to go, in the age of the internet and streaming services.
I want my series without long breaks between the air dates. I can understand a week, but 1 to 3 months [other than the summer break], forget it.
Hence why, I prefer Netflix, or even the free version of Hulu. Wait long enough and I can watch the series from start to finish with no breaks.

I changed my mind and decided to watch.

Why doesn't the guy just lock himself in a room and have that doctor open the door in the morning? Or handcuff yourself to a bed.

Then they wouldn't have much of a show

In the BBC Jekyll, I think that is how the series started out. He had an assistant that he would give all his items to, Hyde had his own stuff in the room. He would then enter the room and the assistant would lock him in. She wasn't supposed to assist Hyde in any manner, but you know how things that that tend to go on these types of shows.

Jekyll is well worth the effort to find it and watch. I'm stunned that they only had 1 season or series as the brits say.

The premise reminds me of My Own Worst Enemy, but I thought that was a very good show, whereas I think Do No Harm started off pretty weak.

Christian Slater vs. whoever this guy is.
Super spy vs. doctor.
Spontaneous transformations vs. scheduled transformations.
etc.

Changed my mind and decided not to watch it. Really didn't capture me that seriously to begin with, and as time passed, my minor interest faded.

Crazy to see it cancelled after just two episodes. Here's a link for those interested. It just reaffirms my belief in not starting a series until it hits season 3.

Off Topic: I didn't realize Awake was cancelled too. I thought that looked interested but held off given the common longevity of TV shows in this day and age.

Awake was interesting, but it should have been a mini-series, or just 10 to 13 episodes in length.

I don't know how it ended, because they moved the show time around and I had deleted the timer.

I totally agree. Networks should look at adopting the 6 to 8 episode series which they have in the UK. Once they know the series is a hit, then just order another series.

I think that ABC Family is kind of doing this with their shows.

I know that is what USa, SyFy, TNT/TBS, FX does. The main networks should catch on, especially with all the damn empty weeks they have between episodes. It's like one season is actually 2, maybe 3, "series". Thanks to all the breaks and the length of them.

Why the hell is Grimm coming back in March? It should be back now.

If you're asking about Awake, it was not revealed which reality was the "real" one.
It went in a whole different direction.

Pretty sure most series from those networks get a 13-22 episode order at a time (full seasons), so no, that's not how those networks do it. The fact that they air a single season over two different "time periods" (long break in the middle) is a different matter.

It's how they run them that gives the appearance of a smaller run.

Agreed. But previously you posted an agreement to this:

My point is that's NOT what's happening on the networks you cited in your post.

From my point of view, that is how it seems. That the networks I listed run just a few episodes of a show and call it a season.

All I know is I'm pissed at USa for taking such long breaks between runs of Psych.

No, they run 13 episodes over a two different periods and call that a season. Really.

And in any case, you responded to a post about the number of episodes ORDERED for production (e.g. 6 like in the UK) and claimed that some US networks do the same. And that's just not the case, regardless of what it SEEMS like to you.
