Interesting Medicine, Cheesy Acting

The medical part of the show is interesting and a lot like it is on Mystery Diagnosis. Otherwise the show is too cheesy, primarily the acting. Whether it is by the actual doctors or supporting characters, the dialogue is usually awkward and melodramatic. The segments where the doctors talk together about things like hypotheses and testing seem entirely contrived. Furthermore, there are sidestories with a doctor, nurse, or technician in some kind of relationship with another. The schmaltziness is barely tolerable. This show seems to be OK for kids about junior-high-school age.
