1. Welcome to Kandahar TV-14 CC

It's 2006: Major Rebecca Gordon, a highly trained trauma surgeon, and Captain Bobby Trang, a brand-new doctor, report for duty at the NATO Role 3 Multinational Medical Unit at Kandahar Airfield, the only advanced surgical care hospital in Southern Afghanistan. Perched at the edge of the airfield, built out of plywood and canvas held together with duct tape, the temporary building that houses the Role 3 shakes every time a plane takes off. The hospital's commander, Colonel Xavier Marks, tells the newcomers to expect an experience unlike any they've had before. Rebecca thinks she can handle anything, while Bobby's acutely conscious of his inexperience. They both get off to a rocky start: it's humbling for both of them as Colonel Marks points out Rebecca's mistakes and tries to build Bobby's confidence. But over the next 48 hours, as they deal with rocket attacks, falling shrapnel and wave after wave of wounded U.S. Marines, Canadian soldiers, Afghan civilians and even a Taliban prisoner-they manage to rise to the challenge, even as they grow more and more exhausted. Welcome to Kandahar.

At least now I can see it as many times as I want!

The characters were real and they brought to life the war in which our men are involved.

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 thought this series was excellent. Great realistics as well as humanistic. I was very sad to find that it was not renewed and there are no further episodes available.

I thought the series was very interesting and well acted. Since they used allot of footage my son took during his 3 tours there I guess I'm a little biased. Wish it hadn't ended but I suppose they were lucky to get the opportunity to make it. At least it survived a full season except in the States where they never showed the last episode.

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.
