Storyline

Television medical drama in soap-opera style. Surgeons Jeffrey Geiger and Aaron Shutte battle valiantly for their patients, often coming into conflict with the hospital administration, run by Dr. Phillip Watters. Their cases are usually ethically complex, highly sensationalistic, and very melodramatic. Meanwhile, Jeffrey and Aaron, who are best friends, commiserate about the shambles their tumultuous personal lives have become.... Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Trivia

In Chicago Hope: Cutting Edges (1995), the series quietly broke a major network TV taboo by showing the uncensored breasts of a teenage girl after her character undergoes successful reconstructive surgery. The scene, conducted with no fanfare and in good taste, attracted little controversy. See more »

Chicago Hope
22 March 1999 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

Started off great with Mandy Patinkin in the lead, but when he left and Christine Lahti stepped in, the quality got lost. While Hector Elizondo still gives great performances episode after episode, the show doesn't have its original punch. Peter MacNicol and E.G. Marshall were wonderful members of the original cast while Berg annoys incessantly. Harmon isn't really in the show much; he just sticks his head in once and a while. One more year and it'll be gone.
