Reviews are good for you

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

Reviews are good for you

So I was in LA chatting with my brother-in-law, a producer-type for a prime-time show some of you may have seen, but that I won't disclose.

At any rate, the idea occurs to one of us that we have an opportunity to do what we love on this forum - watch TV and pretend like we know all the words they use.

So here's the deal. Write a real review of last night's medical TV show. No promises, but maybe someone's agent's brother's cousin might read it, and poof, it's big time.

Give it medical bent (evaluate the medical jargon, would an OB resident really not come down for a mom in eclampsia at the Cook Co. ER?, etc.).

Nothing fancy, a couple of paragraphs. If you're a good writer, show off.

So, to make sure I read you right-

We're to write a review about flaws in shows which make us throw popcorn at the TV because the medical jargon is off?

Or...



I'm confused. :shock:
