A new documentary series on ABC frames the life-and-death battles inside the emergency room at Baltimore's Johns Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore.

Hopkins, which premieres tonight, is a sequel to Hopkins 24/7, an ABC series from eight years back that told intimate, very real stories about Hopkins staff and patients. Fresh Air's TV critic says the new series is just as captivating — but both the series and television itself have changed in the meantime.
