Trust Me Review
Trust Me could be good, but it is simply flat and dull. The acting is not horrible and the story has a good foundation. Unfortunately, the pacing is tediously slow. Plus, the viewer is never really given an opportunity to develop a connection with the characters. This makes it difficult to really care about the characters’ futures. The show does a great job with the operational and medical scenes though.
Sadly, the episode was painfully dull. The series would have been much better with 2 or 3 episodes instead of 5. At this point, I am not impressed. A 6 out of 10 is awarded to episode 2. Catch up with previous recaps of Trust Me right now.
