Andrew El Bardissi,
Eight years after ABC News aired "Hopkins 24/7," its cameras return to Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Hospital for a new six-part documentary about the lives of the caregivers on its staff, and the patients who come through its doors.
If you love reality TV and you love medical drama then this is without a doubt the best amalgam of those two formats ever seen on TV. Each and every program pulls the viewer right in. Each episode is fast paced and cover many diverse situations and personalities. It's also great to see Dr. Oz in his natural element as a heart surgeon and his interactions with patients. You'll gain a new respect for all the nurses, doctors, and all of the other front line medical practitioners that make a hospital function. The scenes in the E.R. are riveting. Life and real death stuff right there in front of you. Without a doubt this is the best thing on TV this year. I've PVR'ed and archived all 8 episodes from season 1 and I'm sharing them with my grandson once he's old enough. To summarize, make time in your schedule for this one. It's worth the time to watch! It'll put a lump in your throat, a tear in your eye, and make your spirit soar.
