Quotes

Dr. Dylan West: Mr. Lawson, don't give up hope.
Mr. Lawson: Try looking from the world from where I'm sitting before you lecture me on hope.
Dr. Dylan West: I've been there.
Mr. Lawson: You've killed someone?
Dr. Dylan West: Yeah. I killed my fiancée. I was a fourth-year surgical resident when I met her. She was amazing. Three months after our first date, I asked her to marry me.

Excellent series
31 January 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Strong Medicine is an intelligent drama dealing with issues from a women's perspective, not seen very often on TV. The story lines are full of thoughtfully resolved problems that I have experienced in my life. I can see if I were younger, it would help me understand why things go the way they do in life. I like the various characters, and the wide diversity in terms of their ethnic and economic background. I also like that they generally support each other, develop friendships, and understand them. The characters are not cardboard, and I really wish it were put on network television. It was hard to find it, and the friends I've recommended it to, love it as well. I'm glad there is not too much gore, as the ER series has started to have, so I can learn about hospital life without seeing body parts and lots of blood.
