      Previous Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic A stellar cast, including Dana Delaney, Blythe Danner and Anna Deavere Smith, but melodramatic medicine. Feb 10, 2021 Full Review Tom Shales Washington Post [Dana] Delany dominates the ensemble without seeming to try, but there are no weak links except for the script, which is light on surprises and heavy on clockwork crises. Mar 12, 2020 Full Review Ken Tucker Entertainment Weekly "Presidio" features a terrific cast including Anna Deveare Smith, Blythe Danner, and Dana Delaney, but its pilot mires them in soap-opera melodrama or ignores them for the younger cast members in relentless pursuit of a young demographic. Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) And "Presidio Med" boasts a fabulous cast - if only they had a better script to dig into. Jan 6, 2020 Full Review David Zurawik Baltimore Sun Presidio Med... is the worst kind of new fall series. It's the kind that makes you crazed about the way network television can waste tremendously talented performers in the worst sort of formulaic, assembly-line mush. Jan 6, 2020 Full Review Tobias Peterson PopMatters Presidio Med diverges further from ER in that it is, oddly, more conservative. Jan 6, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews Next
