Good Look at VA Hospital
3 July 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Best part of this episode is the extensive look at VA hospital center in Long Beach, CA. The dramatics are mainly staged in the various recreation and rehab facilities where Buzz and Tod work. Seems one of the patients, Frank (Hill), is too emotionally scarred by wheelchair confinement to relate to others, especially Buzz whom he sees as a rival. This causes a breakup of his budding romance with nurse Lori (Leslie) which he blames on Buzz. Among the many good guys, he's a hard case, for sure.

Catch that water basketball game where anything goes among the floating patients. My gym classes were never like this. The plot is more a character study than anything suspenseful. Nonetheless, the acting is first-rate, as usual (note Milner and Maharis expressively subtle eye movement). Also, can't help noticing the facial resemblance between Maharis and Hill-- nothing hangs on this, of course. Dialog is straightforward without the philosophical notes the series (Silliphant) sometimes sounded. All in all, it's an interesting behind-the-scenes 60- minutes that makes good background use of real patients.
