Storyline

Dating someone you work with can create problems, as Charley Michaels and Ann Anderson learned. He was a surgeon at Kensington General Hospital in San Francisco, a good doctor but less than enthusiastic about conforming to hospital rules and regulations. She was the hospital's new administrative assistant, an English lady with a commitment to keeping the hospital running efficiently. They were romantically involved but often at odds.

Was Great During the First Season
2 October 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty good show during its first season. The thing that made this show watchable was the chemistry between Wayne Rogers and Lynn Redgrave as Charlie and Ann and that relationship provided the a lot of the humor for the show. Also, the relationship between David Wayne and Ray Buktenica and doctors Weatherby and Solomon respectively gave this show a real kick in the pants. Unfortunately, after Ms. Redgrave left because of a contract dispute, the whole dynamic changed and the show went downhill from there. If it weren't for that, this show would probably have had a very long run on television.
