The first season of this series was produced by William Asher and starred Cleavon Little as the jive-talking intern whose outlandish but well meant shenanigans outraged the hospital's chief-of-staff, played by James Whitmore. Joan Van Ark, Reva Rose, and Nancy Fox played the nurses who were always in cahoots with Little. Whitmore referred to Little and the nurses as "The Four Horsemen of Aggravation." See more »
I recall this series and the first season was funny. OK, so as a 12 year old my tastes were a bit different than now, but regardless, I did find it funny. Clevon Little was (is?) a comic master and was allowed to be funny. Then the show was 're-configured' with some, eh, funny people and the emphasis was taken off Little and he was made essentially a straight man for some very marginally funny cast members. I don't recall the last season, maybe I just gave up at that point. The few past posts I've done and all future ones concerning TV will show what my true feelings are towards television executives. Too much responsibility placed on too little brain power.
There, I've said it.
