Shock Til You Drop:
When strange boxes arrive from networks or studios, I know something strange is afoot. This morning, a delivery arrived from A&E.
Knowing they had the two-part TV movie Coma airing soon, I figured it was a promotion for that title.
Based on the novel by Robin Cook, adapted once before by Michael Crichton and brought back to the screen with the help of producers Ridley and Tony Scott, Coma stars Lauren Ambrose as Dr. Susan Wheeler in this thriller about a medical student who discovers that something sinister is going on in her hospital after routine procedures send more than a few seemingly healthy patients into comas on the operating table. Richard Dreyfuss, Ellen Burstyn, James Woods, Geena Davis and Steven Pasquale co-star.
