Editorial Reviews

Transitioning from the Internet to television, Children's Hospital is a new comedy series created by Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) -- and featuring an all-star cast -- that lampoons the medical show genre by exploring the emotional struggles and sexual politics of a group of doctors with supercharged libidos. The dedication of these doctors to their personal lives is relentless -- and is interrupted only by the occasional need to treat sick children. No medical condition is too severe to distract these oblivious physicians from their primal need to flirt, gossip, make out, talk about sex, show their underwear and more, all in front of horrified children and their anxious parents. The new series is based upon the Webby Award-winning digital show that debuted on TheWB.com in 2008 and quickly became a Web hit with its twisted take on network medical dramas like Grey's Anatomy and House. Check into the hospital!

Ah, medical dramas -- they're basically soap operas for people who don't want to admit they're watching soap operas.

And it's about time somebody spoofed them the way they deserve. "Childrens Hospital - Complete 1st & 2nd Seasons" mocks the soapy storylines and over-the-top melodrama of these medical shows, and never once removes its tongue from its cheek. It's immature, silly, and wonderfully offensive -- seriously, if you are a politically correct person DO NOT WATCH!

"Childrens Hospital" is a hospital founded by Dr. Arthur Childrens, supervised by an alluringly handicapped Chief and populated by several attractive doctors. These doctors spend most of their time wandering the halls having "profound" thoughts, making out in front of patients, and occasionally messing around in the operating room.

The first season has an interesting collection of stories: Dr. Lola Spratt (Erinn Hayes) pretends to have a brain tumor, which quickly spirals out of control; sexy Dr. Cat Black (Lake Bell) who has a torrid affair with a six-year-old suffering from Advanced Aging Disease; and clown doctor Blake becomes obsessed with curing people with the power of laughter.

In the second season, the hospital has a new administrator, Sy Mittleman, who is hated by everyone except the Chief (who is hot for him), and a sexy new doctor. The staff is rocked by deadly childbirth, a return from the dead, missing siblings, nerd affairs, a sensual rabbi, a sexual heat wave, Take Your Daughter To Work Day, and Big Pharma threatening Glenn after he learns that butterfly fluid can cure cancer.

"Childrens Hospital" started as a series of low-budget webisodes, which since got turned into an actual series on Adult Swim.

There is almost no way to adequately describe the savage and spot-on satire that comprises the delightfully insane "Childrens Hospital." There are pleasant shows that you love and you watch with regularity--but every once in a while, something so diabolically and deliciously wrong headed pops up. This is one of those shows! I can assure you that everyone in my immediate circle of friends was turned onto this madness by my enthusiastic rantings! And to a man and woman, everyone joined the cult! This DVD collection contains both the ten original web episodes that made the show an Internet sensation (dubiously labeled Season One--they were combined and re-broadcast as five episodes for TV) as well as the twelve shows produced for the Cartoon Network (more appropriately called Season Two). I think, however, it is prudent to clear up any questions with some definitions. As the original incarnation of the show was on the web--each episode clocks in at roughly five minutes. That's right, you can plow through the so-called first season in about an hour with bathroom and cocktail breaks. In the second season, the one that was actually made for television, each show runs approximately ten to twelve minutes. I wanted to clear up expectations--these are NOT regular TV seasons!

With that warning out of the way, all I can say is that these snippets of hilarity contain more actual laughs in their brief running time than most standard length sitcoms will in much longer airings. "Childrens Hospital," for the uninitiated, is a broad spoof of every medical drama you've ever seen. Episodes are highlighted by a philosophical narration (think "Grey's Anatomy") that ponders life, death, love and other absurdities though the lens of narcissism and selfishness.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Let's ask shim how...herrrim...sees hermself...herm." December 9, 2011
Format:DVD
This is a very funny show, practically surreal in its weirdness. The season 2 finale, titled "The Sultan's Finger: Live," was set up like a live broadcast in which everything that could go wrong very much did. It reminded me of the first episode of the David Lynch show "On The Air." Just great.

5.0 out of 5 stars "General Hospital" Meets Monty Python Only Less Soapy November 6, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I learned about "Childrens Hospital" during the 2011 Comicon convention in San Diego. Of all the things I expected to see at Comicon (such as people dressed up as Captain America, Superman, Thor, Princess Leia, or Darth Vader), this was NOT one of them. And I am a better man for having gone to their Comicon seminar to hear about the show, meet the cast, and partake in the silliness that evolved out of their Q&A session. The short episodes provide just the right amount of laughter, absurdity, and (sometimes) disgust for anybody's who's a fan of Monty Python or "General Hospital" or the notion of Monty Python doing their own version of "General Hospital." I'd tell you more, but honestly, it'd be a waste of your time because NOTHING can prepare you for this show. You have to see it yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully wrong October 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Rob Corddry's episodic series of shorts that originated on the Internet and then moved to Adult Swim are so wrong, so funny, that if you like comedy that is over the top, this may be for you. A cast of regulars with occasional guests is top-notch.

5.0 out of 5 stars funny show to get into December 15, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
like a dark scrubs, Cordry is hilarious. has some pretty stupid s*** in it too, and the first two season have some odd scene sequences where they do a recap of some scene that the audience has never actually seen before. weird. but good.
