The occasion was also marked with a feature-length episode in which a helicopter crashed into the roof of the hospital. See more »
Dr Li Mei Chen (2003 - 2006) arrived to New Zealand on a study program from China. After arriving with very poor spoken English skills and weak pronunciation of the English language, approximately one year after her coming to New Zealand she had a flawless English accent as if she was a New Zealand born Chinese citizen.

This is quite possible one of the worst shows ever made.
The acting is bad. The scripts are bad and repetitive. The whole show is bad!
I could barely stay awake through the episodes I was subjected to! It's so bad, that I can't even watch it to laugh at how bad it is! Everything about this show annoys me!
This show also promotes bad morals. Which wouldn't be so bad, apart from the fact that so many people in New Zealand actually LIKE this show. And they seem to think that the way these bitchy, grumpy hormonal fictional characters carry on is normal and acceptable.
Come on New Zealand, you can do better than this! Look at...oh hang on, I can't think of ANY good New Zealand TV shows. Except TellyLaughs. And they were great because they pointed out what was wrong with New Zealand's worst TV shows.
