    Not going to lie, absolutely love Sameer, he's the funniest guy i ever saw. I also like the white blonde guy, he seems like such a relaxed(don't think he should be a surgeon though, his cannulating was basically just stabbing people), i think amieth would make the best doctor.
    But that priya(surgeon really????!?!?!? you couldn't even take blood, i wouldn't let you anywhere near me) and milla(anybody else think her "posh" accent is put on, she really winds me up and apparently she went on holiday a week after the rotations began) and Aki is just plain useless(no offence, but if a doctor gave out confidential info on phone, id sue him).
    But overall love the show, interesting to note how even those that graduated from the same uni still produced such wildly different doctors.
    I was appallingly bad at cannulas for the first year on the job. It doesn't make you a bad doctor simply because you struggle with one skill.

    Must admit that it got a bit tedious focusing on cannulas/bloods for what seemed like the whole episode. I think voiceover guy, or whoever writes his script, needs a slap more than any of the junior docs.

    'Every day, they must face life and death situations'

    'It's a tough job, and has unique challenges'

    ...... I think they've run out of different ways of saying those lines.

    They must have said 'junior doctors must learn to deal with patients dying' about 5 times. Seems a bit excessive especially as the one they were focussing on didn't even seem that bothered by it

    Sameer just came off as bizarre in that episode. Often a case of 'not sure if joking?!'

    I swear it wasn't always this cheesy though - the voiceover is doing my head in, that guy seriously needs to cut the drama.

    that guy who wanted to study aliens' anatomy is very intelligent. His laidbackness could drive you mad, but he's clearly very clever.

    I thought this. he thought of that on the spot too.

    and remember 'I'm fun, I'm fair, but I'm not funfair'? That's just such a weird thing to say, but he clearly doesn't care and that's what's interesting about him.

    Anyone else think this season is shaping up much better that the last?
    no...

    it's not bad, I don't prefer it though lol... it's the same cannula problem again and some CPR at AandE. It's alright, but not brilliant. Some of the doctors are fun though.

    Oh goodness, can you remember him last year? When they were constantly running for cardiac arrest calls and he'd give this really dramatic coverage of it? :facepalm:

    I agree with the cheesiness - hopefully it'll tone down a bit :rolleyes:

    I loved the over exaggerated music; when someone had a CARDIAC ARREST!(running like crazy through the hospital, mad camera man ) :rofl:

    I think I'm the only one who finds this hilarious

    It's the anticlimax of all the drama that makes it so much worse too - tense music, dramatic voiceover, then the guy gets there and has to time two minute intervals.

    So that's what he was saying. He obviously needs to refine some of his material.

    The episode was good and funny in parts but way too dramatic. Dramatic music for everything: cannulas, tests, even cremation forms
