      Heartbeat — Season 1

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Heartbeat is a Frankensteined drama made up of hospital genre cliches and unlikable characters, though the cases-of-the-week are sporadically interesting.

      Previous Amber Dowling TheWrap Heartbeat is another forgettable medical drama that... will only leave audiences feeling sorry for doctors and their love lives, and scared to ever enter a hospital like this. Jun 14, 2018 Full Review Michael Idato Sydney Morning Herald The good news is that after the precarious beginning, when you fall into the rhythm of the series -- tight, barbed, fast-cut but full of heart, literally and figuratively -- it's an enjoyable night in. Sep 26, 2016 Full Review Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times Some of it might have been written by a computer, sure, but a better class of computer than sometimes is hired to write for TV. Mar 23, 2016 Full Review Melissa Camacho Common Sense Media Soapy, bloody medical drama lacks a pulse. 2/5 Mar 29, 2016 Full Review Tim Surette After about 10 minutes of watching the premiere in catatonic disbelief mixed with unstoppable fits of giggling, I buckled in and prepared to see just how bad this show could get. My diagnosis: pretty darned bad! Mar 23, 2016 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Here's the problem with viewers getting accustomed to smart, high-quality shows on cable: In their wake, broadcast network shows seem particularly fake, predictable and just all-around lame. Such is the case with NBC's Heartbeat. Mar 23, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews Next
