Video Review: Do No Harm (NBC) Premiere [Spoiler Free]

Check out my spoiler free video review of the new NBC series Do No Harm which premieres Thursday, January 31 on NBC (10-11 p.m. ET). You can watch this episode now for free on NBC.com or right below the video review.

Episode Synopsis: Renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale) has it all – including a dark secret. Every night at 8:25pm, Jason’s body is overtaken by a dangerous alternate personality who goes by the name “Ian Price” (also Steven Pasquale). For years, Jason has been able to restrain Ian with the help of an intense pharmaceutical cocktail – that is, until today. Now Ian is free and hell-bent on seeking revenge, which could jeopardize Jason’s life, career, and budding romance with Dr. Lena Solis (Alana De La Garza).

Show Summary: Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale, “Rescue Me”) is a highly respected neurosurgeon who has it all – a lucrative career, confident charm, the gift of compassion. But he also has a deep, dark secret. One morning when he wakes up disoriented in a wrecked hotel room amidst several near-naked women he’s never seen before, he knows one thing: it’s happening again. Every night at the same hour, something inside Jason changes, leaving him almost unrecognizable – seductive, devious, borderline sociopathic. This new man is his dangerous alternate personality who goes by the name of ‘Ian Price.’ For years he’s battled Ian, keeping him in check with a powerful experimental sedative. But now his – their – body has developed a resistance to the serum, setting Ian free once again. And to make matters worse, after being suppressed for so long, Ian is hell-bent on taking revenge on his oppressor. With everyone Jason cares about at risk – patients, friends, coworkers and even the woman he loves – he’s got to stop Ian once and for all. Will they find some common ground, or will they bring each other down? Hell hath no fury like an alter ego scorned.

    I watched, and feel that like Awake, this show will not survive. I am hesitant to invest time in any NBC series at this point.

    As for the show, it was ok, but the premise does not do much for me.
