Thursday on TV: ‘NY Med’ is too weird to be true -- but it is

First Published      Last Updated Aug 07 2014 10:38 am

In tonight's episode of NY Med (9 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4), a surgical resident is stunned when a nervous patient--whose aorta could rupture at any moment--decides to flee the hospital before a life-saving operation can be performed.

If this was a scripted show, that would be too weird to believe.

But this is a documentary series, so we have to believe it. Even though it's too weird to believe.
