It isn’t impressing me yet. I mainly created my TiVo season pass because of John Hannah, but since he isn’t the main character we don’t see much of him.
I have no trouble understanding anyone.
I’m not a fan of “kids who are mature beyond their years” characters, even ones who have been through ordeals, so for me the jury is still out on the little sister. And maturity or not she seems a bit young to be left alone for as long as needed to accommodate an intern/resident’s work hours, so we’ll see about that, too.
The main character (Dr. Hamed) leaves me feeling “meh”: great doctor, horrible communication skills (it annoyed the crap out of me during the pilot that he never just told anyone he needed to find his sister), seemingly very little personality.
I find Laurence Leboeuf’s Canadian accent jarring at times, and her character (Dr. Leblanc) annoys me in some vague way.
BUT, I shall keep watching…at least for the time being. None of the negatives I mention are super significant, and it often takes shows several episodes to hit their stride. Plus, I admit it’s nice to see new network programming. If this were a normal fall premiere season and Transplant was competing with other strong new shows, I might have deleted the season pass already.
