Storyline

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.

Quotes

[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.

French and Saunders spoof
6 January 2005 | by (New Orleans, LA) – See all my reviews

If anyone gets the chance, check out Dr. Quimn, Mad Woman (a spoof of Jane Seymore and Joe Lando's characters on the show). Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are hilarious at capturing the puerile and nauseatingly sweet characters, as well as the often repeated plot lines (listen for Saunder's "he/she's sleeping now...over and over and over). You can see more of their spoofs on any of the their collections. They hit _The Exorcist_, _Misery_, Thelma and Louise_, Gone with the Wind_, and many others. I personally recommend "Gentlemen Prefer French and Saunders." A must see for parody aficionados. It can be found on French and Saunders "Living in a Material World" DVD or VHS.
