Do you watch Medical shows?

  1. Hello, fellow nurses!
    The other day, I was discussing "ER" with a fellow group of nurses,and most said that they do not watch any medical shows. Most stated that they get enough of it at work. And they also state that most of thes shows are not medical based. In fact, one LVN, stated that "General Hospital" was close enough for her. So, when you come from the job, and peel off the scrubs and clogs, do you kick back with Carter and crew or TLC's medical shows?

    YES, I ENJOY WATCHING MEDICAL SHOWS ON TELEVISION WHETHER THEY ARE TRUE TO FORM OR NOT. IT'S ALL ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT AS I SEE IT!

    NO, NO, and did I say NOOOO!!??!!

    Every tape of 'A Baby Story' should be BURNED. Hate that show. Hate it hate it hate it. Stopped watching 'ER' after I graduated from nsg school 'cuz I screamed 'THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN!!' at the t.v. too many times.

    I agree w/the folks who say they get enough of it at work. Gimme a good episode of Spongebob Squarepants over Trauma Life in the ER any day of the week.

    I watch the dramas but not the real life shows like TLC. I get all tense and stressed just watching them, so prefer to go with something else after work.

    . . . Spongebob Squarepants . . . love that cartoon! Don't watch the Trauma Life shows on TLC, either. . .

    (Also love to watch "Cow and Chicken" and "Ed, Edd and Eddy" on the cartoon channel. I draw the line with the "Powder Puff Girls", though. . .)

    thisnurse -- you've got great taste -- ST ELSEWHERE is also my all-time favorite medical show. It was a wonderful show. I do watch ER, but that's it. I've slowly weaned myself off medical shows -- get enough at work. Much rather watch "Everybody Loves Raymond" or one of the "Law and Order" shows.
