Review your favorite medical TV show.
Was it medically accurate? Was it anatomically accurate (that is, do residents actually look like that?)?

Dr. G is on Discovery Health whenever i watch it...maybe it is on both channels?

that show is always iffy for me...sometimes it is very interesting and other times it is so dry and boring...

Hmmm I don't know. I just happened to notice that it was on TLC the other day, maybe it's primarily on Discovery Health?

I think the entertainment value of that show depends largely on the case. You're right, it can be sometimes boring though. It's such a macabre occupation, I don't think I'd ever want to do it for a living.

They moved it to TLC and other networks.
