this is one of the most entertaining shows that you will ever endure. the characters on the show are very life like, you will find yourself comparing situations that you may have dealt with and having the opportuntiy to see how someone else would have responded to the same situation. they touch bases on family problems relationships, financial diffulculty, single parents, teen pregnacy, homeless, holiday celebrations, work enviorments.and much much more. it is filmed in NYC so you have the police dept, the fire dept and the paramedics all in one. living life every day and as sully would say (solving problems). I can't wait for the next season to come out. I have my whole family sitting and waiting for the next episode to come on we all enjoy it.
