...and I really enjoyed it. Which is probably why it got cancelled so quickly. It was the precursor to the ensemble cast medical shows like "ER" and "Chicago Hope." Rather than being set in a hospital, "Heartbeat" took place in a women's OB-GYN clinic. It had all of the requisite situations; pregnancy, infertility, abortion, rape, lesbians, sexual tension between the doctors, you name it. Kate Mulgrew was excellent, as usual, with her take-no-prisoners attitude that has served her well in just about every role she has played. Lynn Whitfield was a gem, as was Laura Johnson and Gail Strickland. If, for some odd, remote chance, this ever pops up on TV, give it a look. It will probably seem a little dated now, but it was an excellent show for its time.
