the best thing I have ever seen on TV
27 November 2004 | by (spain) – See all my reviews

this TV-series is the best I have ever seen. yes I love it. It's incredible the things you can learn from this series: learn about medicine, about personal problems and how to solve them... That series should win an Oscar! usually, the series that are on TV in Spain are all reality shows that the only thing they teach is how a man can eat 2 hundred worms in ten seconds.... that's pathetic. this series should be known for all the people around the world due to it's incredibly and amazing way to say things. it gives the people who watch it the things that other TV series don't do.. like love, faith, friendship,etc. I encourage every person who wants to see it,It's worth to see it believe me!
