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.

Two individuals played the character of Colleen Cooper: Erika Flores (S1-2) and Jessica Bowman (S3-END). Erika was asked to sign a 3-year contract after Season 2 however her father felt she should receive more money than her co-stars siblings. The network refused and recast Jessica Bowman as Colleen Cooper. See more »

Man and woman are not meant to be alone. Like Mother Earth and Father Sky, everyone needs a partner or they become unbalanced. It's nature.
Dr. Mike's an awfully strong force of nature.

Well said. I absolutely love this show. It has heart without being sappy. Of course that's just my opinion but I think that people should realize that others might have different tastes and might like this show. Being negative about it doesn't really help anybody because they have to make up their own mind. As you said it's not a documentary, it's entertainment and it should be seen as only that. I agree Sully is cute but that's not the main reason I watch the show. I don't lay in bed after I watch an episode thinking: "I can't get Sully out of my head". I think about the values that came from the show, things that might make me a better person.
