An ER/St. Elsewhere Retrospective
23 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spoiler Alert Typical of this poorly done series, the focus of Doctors and Nurses was extremely limited and myopic. 35% of the show talked with E.R. actors; 33% talked with St. Elsewhere actors (10% of the show had Norman Lloyd reminisce about his time with Hitchcock). The remaining third had snippets of Kildaire, Ben Casey, Marcus Welby and Chad Everett. Some of the other 47 medical shows on TV listed by IMDb that were ignored included (recent) Grey's Anatomy, House, Doc Martin, Scrubs, and going back a bit Dr. Quinn, Chicago Hope, MASH, Quincy, Trapper John and even Doogie Howser. To illustrate the nearsightedness, although the show pointed out that Marcus Welby had the first Hispanic playing a professional in a series, it completely ignored that Julia in the '60s was the first show to have an Afro-American star as a medical professional. When I watch a series that calls itself "Pioneers of Television" my expectation is that the distant past isn't 2005.
