Rosa Blasi is the best actress ever!
23 March 2004 | by (Racine, WI USA) – See all my reviews

This show is the best show ever.. Rosa Blasi is the best actress ever! I hope the show is on for years to come and I hope the rumor that Mark is killed off in season 5 is not true! I also hope that Janine Turner will guest star on this seasons in at least one show, because that would be the best guest star ever on the show! A lot of fans miss her and would love to see her back on the show even if it is just for one episode! Also I would like to say that I will watch this show for as long as it is on, because there is no other show quite like it! I mean who doesnt want a doctor just like Lu? I know that if my doctor was just like Lu I would never be hesitant to go and get checked out! Even a doctor like Dana would be great or even Andy! I mean they are all wonderful doctors!
