Comedy and drama in the Miami hospital. Sandy, Annie, Gina, Julie, Hank, Paco and Jack keep things running day and night under the slogan "Here I Am". In 2020 the series celebrates it's 30th anniversary.
Ben Matlock is a very expensive criminal defense attorney, who charges one hundred thousand dollars to take a case. Fortunately, he's worth every penny, as he and his associates defend his clients by finding the real killer.
This was an early 90's sitcom that revolved around a hospital floor staff in Miami, Florida. It primarily centered on the female nurses but also some doctors and an orderly named Paco. Richard Mulligan's character (Harry Weston) from the show Empty Nest was a pediatric doctor who also worked at this hospital. In other words the show was a spin off from Empty Nest.Written by
Review BBC Comedy Guide: "Harris's constant determination to give women a strong yet emotional voice, and allow women space and time to deal with subjects of a sensitive (some may think non-comedic) nature, makes her the US equivalent of the British writer Carla Lane." See more »
If the Golden Girls gave birth to Empty Nest, then Empty Nest gave birth to Nurses, a sitcom, which featured the talented and underused Stephanie Hodge who left the show. Arnetia Walker was very good as one of the nurses as Ada Maris. The show also included Loni Anderson as a hospital administrator. The show was never as good as Empty Nest nor was it as brilliant as Golden Girls but sitcoms were abundant in it's day. Unfortunately those sitcoms haven't resurfaced or returned to the popularity it once had on the networks since the Golden Girls and Cosby Show days. Unfortunately, I think we need laughter that is not so based on sexuality like Will and Grace and annoyance like Friends. Good comedy does not have to be dirty or x-rated. The Nurses never became the huge hit nor was it supposed to be. It was there to fill a spot in Saturday's sitcom schedule.
