TV show description:
Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks), the charismatic Chief of Surgery at Hope-Zion Hospital, suffers a massive brain hemorrhage on his wedding day and ends up in a coma. This leaves the hospital in chaos and his fiance, fellow surgeon Alex Reid (Erica Durance), in a state of shock. Along with a newly arrived star surgeon named Joel Goran (Daniel Gillies), Alex races to save Harris’ life. While comatose, Harris explores the hospital halls in “spirit” form, sees it from an outsider’s perspective, and isn’t sure if he’s a ghost or is just dreaming.

Alex is brilliant and quick-witted — an excellent general surgeon who believes completely in her scientific training. It’s a new experience when she finds herself as the loved one of a patient. It leaves her feeling vulnerable and under great pressure. It doesn’t help matters that her former boyfriend, Goran, has joined the staff.

Goran is a brash superstar orthopedic surgeon who doesn’t shy away from confrontations. He left a prestigious position at Sloane-Kettering to come to Hope-Zee and work with Harris. With Harris is in a coma and his ex in the most vulnerable time of her life, he can’t admit that he’s still in love with Alex. He also can’t bring himself to commit to Maggie Lin. Time will tell if he sticks around or runs away, as per usual.

Dawn Bell (Michelle Nolden) is Harris’ ex-wife and a respected cardiologist. She calls into question Alex’s ability to make the right decisions for Harris and is smart, sexy, and sometimes likable.

Like Alex, Tom Reycraft (K. C. Collins) is also a fourth year surgical resident and has his eyes on her position as Chief Surgical Resident. He can come off as crass and cavalier, but he is a talented general surgeon.

Gavin Murphy (Kristopher Turner) is considered Hope-Zee’s smartest resident. He’s perceptive, ethical, slyly sexy and has a special interest in psychiatry. He’s sharply observant about other people’s emotional lives but can be a bit clueless about himself.

Maggie Lin (Julia Taylor Ross) is a fun and sexy surgical resident who’s smart but uncertain. She’s often ruled by her emotions and has a secret that could jeopardize her future. Maggie finds herself charmed by Goran, while she overlooks a potential good thing with her pal Murphy.

Dr. Zach Miller (Ben Ayres) is Hope Z’s ER Doctor. He is a devout Christian and family man but his marriage may be in crisis. His job is his calling as he truly believes he is doing God’s work by saving lives. Confident and compassionate, he leads what can be a very hectic ER.

Shahir Hamza (Huse Madhavji) is a genius neurosurgeon who’s lacking in people skills. He may have mild Asperger’s Syndrome or may just be too intelligent to relate to regular people. Either way, he frequently finds himself in conflicts with his co-workers and patients. Hamza is openly gay and is in a committed relationship with OR nurse Victor Reis (Salvatore Antonio). Reis an extrovert and likes to mix and mingle. Their relationship is put to the test by Hamza’s emotional limitations.

Melanda Tolliver (Glenda Braganza) is an ICU doctor as well as Alex’s best friend. She oversees the day-to-day care of the hospital’s most critically ill patients including Harris. Working in intensive care, Melanda has to be both companionate, and tough as nails. Jackson Wade (Joseph Pierre) is an ICU nurse who works with Melanda and never loses his great sense of humour.

Alex and her fellow doctors continue to work to save Harris and the other patients at the fast-paced hospital. Daily, they must make complicated and courageous decisions in their struggle to keep hope alive.

Why why why do all the good shows always get cancelled? Every time I start to watch a show and really like it it gets cancelled. I really am sick of all these “reality” shows on tv, we need more series on television. You have to give the viewing audience a chance to get into a show before you cancel it. Just bring back Saving Hope and give it another chance!

Getting disgusted with shows being cancelled. I liked Saving Hope. I need to find a way to watch the last two. If it is still running in Canada is there a way we can go online to watch it?

This is very disappointing to me. I REALLY enjoyed this show. Taped in on DVR and everything and then it just drops off the radar. And what a time to drop it, right after he seems to start making some progress. NBC, you need to bring this back!!!

Loved the show. Cancelling this show rather than one of many lousy ones on NBC just proves that NBC will stay at the bottom of the network heap until they clear out most of the dunderheads running it.

Loved the show. Choosing to cx this show over lousier ones on NBC shows why NBC will stay at the bottom of the network heap until they get some half way decent talent at the top.

Why must the networks keep cancelling good shows especially after the first series. This was another damn good show and was getting good when they took it off the air. I can think of plenty of shows not worth being on the air that continue year after year.

Like Saving Hope….but was getting a little boring…writers need to get him out of coma and they may have a great TV series. Greys Anatomy has held on.
