Sigh! What do I say. I really enjoyed seasons one and two. Waiting for season three to be released (I do not watch television) I couldn't understand why anyone would cancel a really good bit of work. Having watched season three, now I understand. What was focused on patients, hospitals and those that work there has suddenly switched to a much darker introspective detailing of a few focal characters with the hospital and patients mere, largely ignored, backdrop for some extremely depressing character assassinations.

Nurse Hawthorne is badly injured and looses her baby. The trained health professionals surrounding her react by firing her and confronting her, en masse, with HER faults! This highly inappropriate response is supposedly lead by a trained crisis councilor who, apparently, has never even met the victim. An excellent chance to educate folks about trauma, reactions to trauma, and appropriate behavior with the traumatized is, instead, used to heap additional trauma on the already dazed and bleeding victim.

They lost their direction and could not find their way back. Instead they kept making it worse. Perhaps it would be better thinking of HawthoRNe as having only two seasons. Sigh¡

What? The first season was great and had focus. This season was awful. No focus with hardly a great story line. I hated it. There only a few patients scattered through this season. Story turned to the sad life of someone who lost her mind. No wonder it was cancelled!

The first two seasons of Hawthorne were pretty good. I think it was probably one of the better medical dramas on television. Yeah, a lot of it was totally predictable and inaccurate but that is 95% of television shows. I liked how it was both comical and serious. I don't watch a lot of t.v., but I actually liked Hawthorne.

The third season is a train wreck. It's like the writers forgot the entire premise of the show and turned it into a very, very bad soap opera. I don't want to spoil it for those who would want to waste there time watching it, but it takes a dramatically different direction. The show now revolves entirely around Christina's personal life and I don't think there were any patient stories this entire season. Hawthorne has so many interesting characters and could have done a lot with them but didn't - at all. Everyone seems out of character, there are too many odd religious references, every episode is totally disjointed and slow, the story lines make no sense at all. Some of the characters who were in the first two seasons disappear off the face of the earth with absolutely no explanation. It's like a seven-year-old wrote the plot for the third season. I know, I probably shouldn't be insulting seven-year-old's.

I agree with many other reviewers; this season turned into a soap opera and it just got worse and worse. Despite some good elements--I liked the soul searching and personal changes many characters faced; I liked learning more about Christina's past; I liked the religious elements...ultimately I do not believe the level of drama the writers amped up into these characters. I believe Christina had more integrity and more capacity to deal with trauma than this season wrote her to have. The amping up element of the drama was not believable.

Also, the ABRUPT change in the story line about Camille's love life was insulting to me as a viewer. I'm not stupid. I know what happened in Season 2, so what is wrong with the writers that they couldn't spend five minutes explaining how she gets from point A in Season 2 to point B in Season 3? Give me a break. This was the most blatant example of poor writing I've seen in a show in a very long time. It makes me think there were some very bad choices being made behind the scenes that led to such a bad season overall. As a viewer, I am genuinely appalled by the decision to defenestrate the verisimilitude of Camille's romantic storyline. Unlike the Defenestration of Prague, there was no soft landing for what they threw out the window here!--just a completely unnecessary jettisoning of continuity and believability that got worse, and worse, and worse as the season progressed.

SOAP OPERA plot aspects SPOILER ALERT: The season had plenty of drama just from the first episode, but amping it up with more violence, infidelity, divorce, and murder made it into a different show than the show I was watching in Seasons 1 and 2. I agree with another reviewer: better to think of this as a two-season show.

Season 3 not so much.The story lines sort of fell apart on this season. I likes some episodes but as a whole, not anywhere near the caliber of seasons 1 and 2.

Primarily, I am upset about the season finale -- it was actually the series finale, and left the viewer hanging, never to know how anything turned out. And, secondly, the final season was becoming more like a sappy soap opera

I really hate this episode... After everything that's happened she sleeps with Nick who is the sleaziest ever guy on this show. I thought the show was looking up until this happened, I feel greatly disappointed by this episode
