Ok, so this show wasn't Shakespeare. It was pure trash, but fun trash. It actually begain as a two hour movie in 1988. Mimi Kuzyk was the star (replaced by Suzanne Pleshette in the tv series). Fran Bennett was in it as Nurse Lenore and Kristy Swanson, Chelsea Field and Susan Walters were also there. The other two girls in the movie were played by Galyn Gorg and Neith Hunter (replaced in the series by Roxann Biggs and Kim Johnston Ulrich). I really like the movie and was happy to see it ordered to series the following spring. Barry Newman was on hand as Garrett in the series but about midway through the run of the show Gil Gerard was added to the cast and I got the feeling he was there to phase Barry Newman out. Also added to the cast midway through the season was Doran Clark as over the top nasty Dr. Charlene Chasen. She was an actress I had always liked, but I could not stand her character on this show.. This was pure soap opera full of sexcapades and silly storylines, but it was an entertaining hour of television. I was very sorry to see it end, especially since the storylines were left up in the air.
