Did Do No  Harm leave you with split feelings?
/>

NBC’s new Jekyll-and-Hyde drama about a doctor suffering from disassociative identity disorder debuted Thursday at 10/9c. It centers on Dr. Jason Cole (Rescue Me‘s Steven Pasquale), who’s a brilliant neurosurgeon and all-around good guy from 8:25 a.m. to 8:25 p.m. During the other 12 hours, however, his bad boy alter ego Ian Price comes out to play.

Jason has kept his alter on a tight leash for the past five years, thanks to an experimental drug that renders him unconscious during Ian’s office hours. However, that set-up also makes Jason unable to forge relationships – such as with his flirty coworker Dr. Lena Solis (Law & Order‘s Alana de la Garza) — outside of work hours. But the drug’s effectiveness is wearing off, as evidenced by Jason waking up in a strange apartment, surrounded by naked women and with vague memories of brawling and doing cocaine.

While Jason’s lab tech buddy Ruben (Lin-Manuel Miranda) labors to create a stronger formula that won’t kill him, the good doc is at the mercy of his “prick” of a double – whose crimes include toying with Lena, obsessing over Jason’s ex-wife Olivia (and child, Cole) and polluting Jason’s lungs with cigarettes.

Amid all of this, Jason presides over two typical medical drama cases: a brain-surgery patient who loses the ability to recognize his family and a domestic abuse victim who refuses to leave the husband who beats her. (At least in the latter case, Jason uses Ian’s rage to get the pulverized husband to turn himself in.)

Near the end of the episode, after learning how Ian messed with Lena, Jason develops a new mission regarding his other personality: “I don’t want to control him anymore,” he tells Ruben. “I want to eliminate him.”

Pasquale does well as the diametrically opposed main characters; Ian’s glee in wrecking Jason’s life and career certainly is fun to watch. It’ll be interesting to see how the show fleshes out its supporting characters – including Jason’s boss Dr. Young (played by The Cosby Show‘s Phylicia Rashad) and his devoted assistant Josh (played by Freaks and Geeks‘ Samm Levine) — who don’t have much to do in the pilot.
