Is It Any Good?

This engaging "ride-along" reality show highlights how EMS responders handle chaos by being compassionate and non-judgmental while remaining focused on rendering appropriate assistance. It also shows the various ways that the injured respond to their emergencies as a result of being in shock or pain or simply frustrated with the situations they find themselves in.

Although many of the responders are a pleasure to watch, much of the show's entertainment value also comes from the various accidents and injuries featured here, which range from the odd to the horrific. Some of the folks they deal with at the scene also make for some interesting moments. But despite all the kindness featured here, it's not for the faint of heart.
