Storyline

This series brought the character of "Trapper John" from M*A*S*H in as the Chief of Surgery at San Francisco Memorial Hospital. Joining him on the surgical staff was a brilliant young surgeon, G. Alonzo "Gonzo" Gates, who had also served in a MASH unit - in Vietnam. The show covered standard medical stories, but it also took chances with such subjects as AIDS, the Epstein-Barr Virus, and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Written by Linda Adams <Garridon@aol.com>

watching in 2018.....just meh...and a very liberal show
12 March 2018 | by missjenniferdSee all my reviews

Im a conservative, and in 2018 with political views getting further and further apart from the middle, i like watching older shows so i can drift back into the conservative good ol days.. this show is just a bunch of liberal preaching most of the time. Someone gets on their high horse, throws a tantrum, and complains on their uppity high horse attitude how close minded or awful everyone else is... Then of course, everyone sees the error of their ways and agrees with whoever was throwing the tantrum... I was like wow, what year is this show, its just like its 2018 all over again.and for the record, contrary to all the rest of the reviews, house is the best medical show, followed by e.r.
