Excellent TV Series and Way Ahead of It's Time !!!
14 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series was way ahead of it's time . . . Not only were there mostly women doctors in the practice (headed up by Kate Mulgrew and Laura Johnson to name a few . . . ) But Gail Strickland and Gina Hecht played a wonderful lesbian couple !!! I was still very deep in the closet and was shocked to see women in a relationship that was working. This was pre-Ellen . . . This was the first time I remember lesbians being part of an ensemble cast. I thought they were brilliant for having the story revolve around a Women's Clinic. Having so many stories to choose from.

There has been so little information out there on this series. I really wish someone would come forward and release the DVD's !!! Maybe time has caught up with the series ??? Hint, Hint Hint !!! :-) :-)
