This is my favorite show. I became hooked shortly after I started to watch it.Dr. Mike is a brave, stubborn woman who knows what she wants (atleast most of the time) & goes after it. She is a great mom to Matthew, Colleen, & Brian and also to Katie. She's also a great doctor. The medical procedures they show on the show are all actual procedures they did back in the time it takes place, too. Sully is also a great guy who reins in Dr. Mike whenever she needs it. He is an excellent friend to all of his friends. The show deals with real issues, too. They dealt with prejudice(when Robert E. buys his house & Dr. Mike the clinic), gambling(Matthew), drinking (Jake), etc.In short it is a wonderful show.
