about medical center
13 August 2005 | by n_ruysSee all my reviews

Medical Center was a very popular drama doctor TV. series in the seventies, Chad Everett and James Daly did an super starring role as doctor Joe Gannon and chief of staff doctor Paul Lochner. It also starred most well known actors from those days in guest roles,for instance, Jodie foster, David Cassidy, Michael Douglas, Cid Charisse, Richard Thomas and many more,

every episode had it's own touching medical story, the script writers did do an excellent job, by writing such touching exiting medical story's,about people and their medical problems, and how the doctors helped them to cure,

but it was Chad Everett in his brilliant touching role as clever, kind ,great looking doctor Joe Gannon, who brought the show to the top! There has never been any medical Dr. show on TV who was so perfect done like this one was! Hope the entire series will be released on DVD or home video soon! A lot of medical center fans, would love this to happen! We would all love to see a remake movie of medical center with Chad Everett nowadays! this would be great!
