Created by Nathan Bryon and Samson Kayo for Sky Originals, Bloods is a UK-based situational comedy series. The premise explores the adventures of two misfit paramedics who get to know each other as they save people’s lives on the streets of London.
Season 1 of Bloods aims at bringing the two partners together in 6 episodes spanning over 22 minutes each. The comedy is heavily burdened upon its two stars Samson Kayo and Jane Horrocks.
‘Bloods’ Season 1 Summary
Maleek (Samson Kayo) is an over-enthusiastic paramedic. In the opening sequences, in his excitement, Maleek electrodes his partner Kevin while he was saving a man by a defibrillator.
The next day, Maleek’s station in-charge Jo (Lucy Punch) assigns him a new partner, Wendy (Jane Horrocks) whose over friendliness he can’t match. These two misfits try to gel in while they take up adventures to save lives.
In an ambulance station, the series also establishes other prominent characters and their individual struggles. An aspiring paramedic Kareshma (Aasiya Shah) wishes to someday become in-charge of the station like Jo and but ends up partnering on road with a dull-unknown old medic, Gary who lowers Kareshma’s enthusiasm and dulls her young spirit.
The in-charge, Jo while serving the station crushes upon a charming solo paramedic Lawrence who rides a bike ambulance. Jo tries her best to woo him and assist him on his operations but Lawrence maintains a distance. The interaction between the two is intriguing.
Major Spoilers Ahead
‘Bloods’ Season 1 Ending Explained
The fighting partners, Maleek and Wendy finally come to an agreement and accept each other. They finally become an unlikely team and Maleek stops missing his old partner, Kevin.
In the end, after a victorious adventure in which Wendy assisted birth delivery on an ambulance, Maleek couldn’t stop cherishing it. It is when an overly grown man, Spencer calls Wendy mummy. Maleek knew that Wendy was divorced but he had no idea that she has kids and someone who is older than Maleek himself. Spencer also reveals that Wendy’s real name is Helen and she ran away from home.
Maleek helps Wendy to run away from Spencer but he couldn’t stop thinking about the incident. Maleek senses something dubious about Wendy and that establishes the cliff-hanger for the end of Season 1. Season 2 of Bloods will explore Wendy’s true identity and other fun adventures.
Some British comedies flaunt a really dry sense of humor and unfortunately Bloods is one of them. In all the 6 episodes with a total running time of 130 minutes, there wasn’t any single moment that would make you chuckle. It is literally as dry as dust and duller than an average boring drama. Only Jo and Lawrence’s plot had some spark. But it was rather cute than funny, and in the end too cliched.
Bloods Season 1 is a situation comedy series created by Nathan Bryon and Samson Kayo. It is streaming on SKY.
