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.

When you read a story, you cannot know who tells it - cannot see him, or hear his voice. If you cannot see his spirit, the story has no meaning.
Dr. Michaela 'Mike' Quinn:
Well, all we wanna do is give them a new way of learning, so they can have both ways.

Despite being such a simple series, It is probably one of the best for that reason. The 'EastEnders' of nowadays is becoming way too stereotypical and predictable that this masterpiece of a series has a somewhat timelessness to it. I mean, I'm a 16 year old, and I'M ADDICTED TO IT! The acting is of a high standard and there is no part of it I can deem as typical.
The best thing is, that if you miss a few episodes and pick it up from a random episode, it still makes sense and you still enjoy watching it. It's not like one of those series that if you miss one episode, you don't really understand what's going on in all the episodes following it. That is why this series is so viewer-friendly.
I don't know about you, but I'm considering buying the entire box-set!
