What medical shows do you watch? - page 3

I used to watch ER, lost interest in that when Carter left, but keep up here and there to test my knowledge....I adore Greys Anatomy - they have some great cases (and good eye candy;) ) and hey, they... Read More

    Grey's anatomy, house, strong medicine, ER and love those trauma shows, and we have a few canadian ones called surgeons (i think) where i have seen a few of our docs profiled..

    Do they still play Strong Medicine? I used to watch it all the time on Lifetime but they changed the days/times around and now I can't find it. Any info would be appreciated... I loved that show.

    I am a discovery health channel addict... I watch Paramedics, Trauma, Untold Stories of the ER, The Critical Hour, Dr. G, Mystery Diagnosis, and lots of the special shows (although as someone said, many are reruns)

    OMG - I was just thinking of starting a thread like this! I love ER, Trauma: Life in the ER, and EVERYTHING else on Discovery Health Channel. I have to record everything though and watch them all when my husband is not around. He can NOT STAND the sight of blood...so I have to sneak around him so I don't gross him out.
    I haven't tried Grey's Anatomy or House yet, but I've heard they're really good so I think I'll rent the first season and catch up on one lazy Sunday.

    Love Grey's Anatomy, ER (even though it has been on too long), House and a new show on TNT called Saved. More paramedic drama then nursing, but still really good, and of course, TLC and Disovery health programs

    Grey's Anatomy and Discovery Health, I love watching plastic surgery.

    I only allow myself to watch three TV series at one time [on DVD - we don't have cable], and two of them are medically oriented:

    Scrubs - it is actually scary how similar the humor on the show parallels mine

    House - the perfect antithesis to what a good, holistic health care provider should be...and I love it. Plus, it is a great exercise in ways to violate medical ethics.

    I love watching Grey's Anatomy! I don't watch it regularly, but when I catch it, the channel stays there.

    has anybody seen the special on discovery health, i can't remember the name exactly, but something like "Left Behind in the OR".. ? anyway, it's about surgical tools being left in the body after surgery and found on x-rays and such, long after the procedure, or in some cases, causing MAJOR medical problems. one of the most interesting was a man who had something removed and after the surgery, he noticed a sharp pain in his side everytime he rolled over in the bed a certain way. he never followed up on it, just learned to lay a different way in the bed. years later, when getting x-rays for something unrelated, an x-ray tech discovered a pair of scissors in his abdomen

    I am now addicted to Grey's Anatomy, thanks to this thread--I went out and rented season 1 and DH and I watched 8 episodes over the weekend!

    Yes, I love my DVR!!!! I have Grey's Anatomy and Saved set to record all new episodes. I tell everybody that I'm on the lookout for my own George at the hospital! I used to be a very faithful ER watcher, and I think it's still set on the DVR, but it doesn't get watched very often. I also love a lot of the stuff on Discovery Health - there are some FASCINATING shows on there! I also record House, but all the nurses on there are ever used for is "clean-up on aisle 3" as House shouts out. The docs on there do all the transports, meds, blood draws, etc. It's really annoying. And how many times have you seen House jab somebody with a syringe w/out cleaning the site first? Just once I would like to see a nurse on the show who shows some competence! But it is an educational show and challenges my thinking.

    Quote from LivingMyDream
    I watch mostly TLC/Discovery Health shows like Trauma: Life in the ER; Dr. G, Medical Examiner; Untold Stories of the ER; The Critical Hour....

    I don't really care for the medical drama shows on the networks...too much like soap operas for me...

    I'm with you, Sonya! Dr G even offers us little exercises in critical thinking with the way that the cases are presented. Another Discovery Health show that I enjoy is First Days, although I haven't seen it in a while.
