Do No Harm Axed!
A brilliant neurosurgeon who has to battle his own alter-ego so that he can live a normal life.
Not as compelling as BBC’s Jekyll, but certainly watchable. I am surprised that NBC went this route after similarly-themed Own Worst Enemy fizzled a few years back.
The marketing could have been stronger. After you get past the Jekyll & Hyde stuff, what kind of show are viewers dealing with? Medical procedural? Crime drama? Thriller? Viewers want a clear sense of what they’ll be getting every week. On the other hand, the marketing folks can only work with what they’ve been given. The “all of the above” approach to the concept probably contributed to the muddled advertising. I don’t understand the image of Ian's face in Jason's hands. Is that supposed to be scary?
I hope the produced episodes eventually find their way online or on SyFy...
