****POILERS**** White hot inaugural "Medic" episode has Dr. Konrad Styner, Richard Boone, in the role of a biblical King Solomon in having to decide which of the two patients under his care or operation to save: The mother Estelle Collins, Beverely Garland, or her new born baby girl. As for Estella she's as good as dead on arrival with her suffering from terminal 4th stage leukemia but there's still a chance to save her baby girl who's blood may not be effected by the disease but time is quickly running out on her.

With Estella's concerned husband Larry, Lee Marvin, pacing back and forth in the recovery room Dr. Styner and his staff work round the clock to save his new born baby as the baby's mom is declared dead during the operation. Nail biting final moments as the new born baby is given mouth to mouth-with a straw by Dr.Styner- as well as hot and cold baths to keep its heart beating and in the end miraculously survives the some five hour operation. Lighting up a cigarette-in the operating room no less- and getting a tap on the back a sweating Dr. Styner got the job done and can now relax in the hospital swing room sipping a hot cup of coffee as well as watching the latest episode of "Dragnet" on TV.

P.S Both Beverly Garland and Lee Marvin would soon star in their own TV crime series some three years later with Graland playing police undercover woman Casey Jones in "Decoy" and Marvin as the tough Let. Frank Ballinger in "M-Squad".
