It seems like there are an endless number of medical shows on TV these days, but I’ve recently come across Boston Med and really enjoyed it. Unlike most shows, it follows the stories of real patients and healthcare providers, and provides a nice balance between their personal and professional lives. Here’s a capsule from the ABC website for the show:
“Boston Med picks up where the Peabody Award-winning Hopkins left off, going even deeper into the lives of caregivers and the cutting edge medical cases they confront inside the walls of America’s top hospitals. In this original eight-hour series, the unforgettable stories of doctors, nurses and patients are adeptly woven to give each hour the pace and intensity of a drama. Whether it’s the young resident in crisis doubting that she’s good enough to become a Harvard-trained doctor, or the deployed soldier’s pregnant wife praying for a miracle surgery to save her baby, Boston Med is sure to touch your heart.”
Although the first season just finished a few days ago, there may be more episodes in the future. If there are, I’ll be sure to let you know. You can watch all eight episodes via the “Boston Med” link above. Enjoy!
