Editorial Reviews

Combat Hospital is a fictional medical procedural, set in 2006 at the only military hospital providing advanced surgical care in all of Southern Afghanistan. The series charts the frantic lives of the hospital's resident doctors and nurses from Canada, America, the U.K. and other coalition countries. This highly-charged series follows the characters as they navigate their way through the relentless life-and-death battles on the operating table, and the never-ending conflicts that arise from working in a war zone military hospital.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Once dubbed as "the nakedest person in TV history." But I digress. This Canadian produced drama provides a realistic look at a front line combat hospital.

I wouldn't call Combat Hospital (CH) "Mash" for the next generation, as while there are comedic moments, CH is much more of drama where doctors of multiple nationalities, deal with patients, family back home, being in Afghanistan and each other.

In my opinion the production value and cast is excellent. CH appeared on ABC as a late season replacement and slipped under my radar. I caught up with CH thanks to my "on-demand" during the TV "dog days" of the summer.

Truth be told, I don't particularly gravitate towards medical dramas. Watch CH for the storylines, casting and production values. Lusting after Michelle Borth is just an ancillary bonus =:)

I really liked this show. The cast is great and I thought the episodes were really well done. The only thing I didn't like was running out of episodes to watch.

This was a very good television program that did not receive the recognition and ratings it deserved. Viewers actually cared about these characters and would have liked for their story to continue. With these DVDs, fans can at least rewatch the sole season that aired. I would also recommend this to fans of other tv shows like MASH, CHINA BEACH, TOUR OF DUTY, etc. or anyone who knows someone or has a family member who served in the Middle East. At times it is uncomfortable to watch as it portrays a combat hospital and therefore injuries and casualties of war. But it also shows the dedication of the medical staff.

I was a civilian medic a few miles North of this hospital at Kandahar Airfield. I took my patients there and did some training of the medics that staffed the Emergency Department. This will be a nice reminder of the folks I worked with there. I met and worked with some wonderful Dr's, physician assistants and medics there.

I love the show as it is extremely touching and fast pace. I would recommend this show to most anyone especially my friends. On top of which, the seller has shipped it to me fast and I received it before the actual timing.

From the day I heard that the show had not been picked
up for a second season, I still wonder, just what happened.
The network claimed, it had low ratings, and that they had
another show for it's time slot.
Did Combat Hospital, step on too many toes?
Did they touch on topics that were "off limits"?
Did the mention of "Govt Contract" workers, cause some people
to get uncomfortable?
Did the Special Forces episodes cause undue reactions?
Unlike, China Beach, which was an after product of the Vietnam
War, Combat Hospital, covers things and issues concerning a War
that is still on going, and people don't wish to see war as it is happening.
I watched the show when it aired, and have watched all of the episodes
over again, and yes, it pulls no punches.
Pity that it only ran for one season.

This contains SPOILERs. I found to be Fantastic. I watched done if these when they were airing, but to watch the whole season as one block makes for some powerful tv, especially when a character you love is killed. I bawled.

Great series! It's just too bad it only lasted one season, I bought while working as nurse in Afghanistan so I could identify with it...helps the viewer get an idea of what things are like in the "Stan".
