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.

Beth Sullivan, who named Loren Bray after her grandfather, never intended for him to have a softer side. Her grandfather was a grumpy, mean man, and that was her idea for Loren's character. But Orson Bean had an immediate connection with Shawn Toovey on the set and it was impossible not to write that bond into the show. See more »

It is a sad day when programs produced for general family viewing are so few and far between. However, it is comforting to know that Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman joins the ranks of great family programming. One of my favorite episodes is 'Just One Lullaby', which depicts the thin line between school discipline and abuse. I did not agree with the way in which the teacher 'got a taste of her own medicine' toward the end of the episode, but it proved the adage that 'what goes around, comes around'.
Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman may just go down in history as a great television classic.
Huzzah for this one.
