Storyline

Television medical drama in soap-opera style. Surgeons Jeffrey Geiger and Aaron Shutte battle valiantly for their patients, often coming into conflict with the hospital administration, run by Dr. Phillip Watters. Their cases are usually ethically complex, highly sensationalistic, and very melodramatic. Meanwhile, Jeffrey and Aaron, who are best friends, commiserate about the shambles their tumultuous personal lives have become.... Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Trivia

There are a lot of references throughout the series to St. Elsewhere (1982), another popular hospital-themed drama. Kate Austin wins the "Left Anterior Descending Aorta" award for being a top notch cardiac surgeon. Stephen Furst appeared playing a vet named Elliot. On St. Elsewhere, he played Elliot Axelrod, whose father was a vet (he did not appear as his St. Elsewhere character though as Elliot Axelrod, he was killed off on St. Elsewhere). Kate quotes her mentor to be "Dr. David Demidian". Mark Craig (William Daniels), on St. Elsewhere, said that Demidian was his mentor as well. See more »

Life and times of doctors at Chicago Hope Hospital.
21 March 2004 | by julia_rakowskiSee all my reviews

Chicago hope is one of the best medical dramas, and television shows in general, I have ever seen. The cast is amazing and includes some of Hollywood's top names. The show follows the lives of numerous doctors through their daily work and personal routines. The show tends to be very dramatic, but it has comedic elements. Each character has their own way of dealing with personal loss and trauma, which is a very common element in Chicago Hope. The characters are all different, with diverse personalities and temperaments. Though there is some jargon, it is mostly explained clearly and easy to follow. I find myself relating to some of the characters and their problems. The episodes are very touching and realistic. The on screen chemistry between the characters is incredible. A glimpse into the everyday life of a typical inner city hospital physician. Two thumbs way up!
