The fifth daughter of a wealthy Boston physician, Michaela Quinn defies the conventions of post-Civil War society by following in her father's footsteps. After his death, 'Dr. Mike' leaves Boston and moves to the frontier town of Colorado Springs, where she finds the citizens less than thrilled by the concept of a woman doctor. While she struggles to earn their trust, Mike's life is complicated by a growing relationship with mountain man Byron Sully, and the unexpected responsibility of raising three orphaned children.

It's a TV show people, not a historical documentary!!!!!
First off I would like to start out by saying that I just can't understand why people think this is a bad show. The most common thing I read was that this show was basically historically incorrect or fake. Do you people think the things that happened on Little House on the Prairie were real? Do you think that all TV shows and movies that are based around some historical time period have to be accurate? If that were the case TV/movies would be very boring. Besides a few episodes that gave a few actual historical facts, it never claimed to be historically correct. Why can't people just watch the show and enjoy the amazing sets, wonderful characters and interesting story lines. Do you watch every John Wayne movie and judge them by what's historically correct? I doubt it. Anyways, I personally think it was one of the best shows ever. Joe Lando is hot, Jane Seymour is beautiful and both are great actors. I loved all of the characters, even the ones I hated. Most of the story lines were sad and made you feel for each character involved, but I laughed a lot too. I watched the show religiously and then for years on reruns and now I can't wait until the DVDs get a little less expensive so I can buy them all!!
