Bizarre ER

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Thurs­day, 7.30pm, CI In which peo­ple with un­pleas­ant in­juries are ex­ploited for the amuse­ment of view­ers. The ap­proach here is more MTV than E.R., so, to a funky sound­track, you can watch peo­ple hav­ing enor­mous boils lanced, see hor­ren­dous im­pal­ings, fol­low the jour­ney of a bloke who has swal­lowed a mo­bile phone and see bones so de­formed by frac­tures that they point amus­ingly in all direc­tions. Not my idea of a good time on tele­vi­sion but an eye opener of sorts for any­one who hasn’t spent much time in an emer­gency depart­ment.
