The best hospital series ever!!
6 November 2007 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

"Nemocnice..." is an intelligently written classic Czechoslovakian TV-series about everyday conflicts and professional issues in a small-town Czech clinic. Family affairs and several love stories of doctors and nurses are perfectly developed and no spectacular action scenes are necessary to attract viewers' attention. Many tried to copy different elements of this series later on to be successful, but I strongly believe that no other hospital series (like Schwarzwald Klinik or ER) has beaten this masterpiece so far... Today's hospital series are full of exaggerated characters and attitudinized effects while they all lack the intelligent screenplay and the actual plot which was all the way present in case of "Nemocnice...".
