After the sudden death of her father and mentor Dr. Michaela Quinn, also known as Dr. Mike, left her home in Boston to practice in the Colorado territory in a little town called Colorado Springs. Since the practice with her father was gone she had no where to work in Boston so she responded to an ad for a doctor on the new frontier. After the long journey she found that Colorado Springs was no better at welcoming a woman doctor as Boston was, but was determined to stay and show people that she was just as good as any man. She is befriended by Charlotte Copper and they become very close friends. Dr. Mike decides to look for permanent housing and receives an offer from a local man, Sully, to stay at his old homestead since no one was using it now. Charlotte calls on Dr. Mike to help deliver a baby and Dr Mike enlists Charlotte help to clean the homestead along with her sons Matthew and Brian, and her daughter Colleen.

[first lines]
Dr. Michaela 'Mike' Quinn: [voiceover narration] I was born on February 15, 1833, in Boston, Massachusetts, the last of five children - the four before me all girls. My father, being a man of science, firmly believed that the odds were to finally dictate the birth of a long awaited son. He would be named Michael... I was named Michaela.

Yeah, right
5 September 2003 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Let's be fair here. The plot sucks, most characters are as dimensional as cardboard coutouts and the anachronisms are as frequent as the political correctness. This show has no courage at all.

When it comes to the characters, I find some depth only in Sully and also, sometimes (surprisingly) in Hank. These guys actually get to evolve a little.

I stopped watching the show after the baby came. That's when it really really really starts to be a pukefest. If you want good western, throw this in the trash and visit your local videostore. There are plenty of good westerns out there.

To be honest: the only reason women watch this is because they think Sully is hot. The only reason men watch this is because women (inspired by dr Quinns women-rule-the-world attitude) force them to.

And I would also like to laugh at the gullible person who said that other races are actually played by actors of the right race! Did you forget Inga and the swedish settlers? I am swedish, and I can reveal that it's always embarrasing when the swedes are in the show. Their swedish sucks so much it's impossible to understand beyond a few words, it's translated incorrectly by the in-show interpretors and Inga's accent is simply a joke. Not that swedes and americans are different races, but they are certainly different peoples and the casting of the swedes certainly qualifies as a catastophe.
