Product Description

From the moment that Dr. Michaela "Mike" Quinn (Jane Seymour) first stepped from the stagecoach into the mud of Colorado Springs, TV audiences had a new destination on Saturday nights. Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman won popular and critical acclaim--including five Emmy® awards--with its tales of courage, conviction and romance on the American frontier. When the show was cancelled after six seasons, it sparked one of the largest viewer protests in TV history.

This comprehensive collector's set gathers all 17 episodes from the groundbreaking first season--plus a host of exclusive extras--on 5 DVDs. Old fans will delight in revisiting favorite moments, like Dr. Mike's first kiss from Sully (Joe Lando) and General Custer's visit to town, while newcomers will be captivated by the gripping, family-friendly stories and painstaking authenticity. Return to Colorado Springs for the unforgettable first season of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, available for the first time on DVD!

Season one of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman captures the popular television series at its most charming and original: a gently feminist, 19th-century Western with mythic overtones, a Gunsmoke-like vision of small-town constancy, and an audacious love story that might best be described as Buckskin Bronte. British actress Jane Seymour scrubbed away her accent to play Michaela Quinn, fifth daughter of a well-to-do Boston physician who encouraged her to get a medical degree despite social obstacles.

The headstrong Quinn moves to rough-and-tumble Colorado Springs to set up a practice, faces stiff resistance from the locals, witnesses the brutality of white America's expansionism, and generally experiences a classic Western transformation from privilege to pioneering. Along the way, Quinn makes a heartfelt connection with the mysterious Sully (Joe Lando), a laconic outsider/cowboy-knight-errant/widower preserving his broken heart. While the series' pilot may be the best thing in this set, there is a lot to enjoy about further episodes (with such guest stars as Johnny Cash and Robert Culp) exploring Quinn's hard-won admiration from town skeptics. Dr. Quinn creator Beth Sullivan admirably balances the many influences and narrative forces at work; some of the best shows are idea-driven, such as "Portraits," which deals with prejudice. --Tom Keogh

When I first heard about the concept of the show in 1992, I was already convinced that I just HAD to see the very first episode (pilot). And gosh I am glad I did, I have been watching breathlessly for six years!
The first season in my opinion is the best, because it illustrates how hard it was for women to earn respect in a men's world. Dr. Quinn (Jane Seymour) is one of the first woman doctors and when she moves to Colorado Springs, a woman on her own, not married, she has to convince the townspeople that she is very capable as a doctor. Then, when she gets the care of three children, she's also a single mother. GREAT stuff!!
Besides that the life and culture of the Cheyenne people, are beautifully brought out. Dr. Quinn, gets her indian name 'medicine woman' from chief Black Kettle as she saves his life.
Beth Sullivan has created a masterpiece, a series for prime time to watch with the whole family. Jane Seymour is lead actress and we finally see that she can do more than acting in mini-series. Joe Lando (Sully), Chad Allen (Matthew), Erika Flores (Colleen) and Shawn Toovey (Brian) show us great acting as well!

Dr. Quinn is one of the finest shows ever produced. For six seasons, this show took us back to the period just after the end of the Civil War when the West was still wild, beautiful and dangerous. Jane Seymour is unforgettable as Dr. Michaela Quinn who leaves Boston high society to begin a medical practice in Colorado Springs. The history of medicine unravels before our eyes, along with the history of the West, the injustices carried out against Native Americans, the birth of the railroad, etc. Dr. Quinn also tells one of the greatest love stories ever written for television. The chemistry between Jane Seymour and Joe Lando was truly amazing.
There was good reason for the uproar unleashed when CBS canceled this show before its time was done. It was a terrible mistake in judgment. It is a decision that continues to haunt the President of CBS, Leslie Moonves, who recently admitted that he still receives (more than 7 years after Dr. Quinn's cancellation) over 100 protest letters and e-mails a month.
If you have never seen this show -- watch it now (commericial-free!!!) and enjoy one hell of a ride.

"Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" is one of the best TV series. I'm glad to see its release on DVD, but disappointed to find that it's not closed-captioned like it's described in's "Product Details." Once again, the hearing impared are ignored, and cannot fully appreciate the great series. In terms of the rating, the Series itself deserves FIVE STARS, but I give the DVD three stars for its lack of close captions, and its false advertisement in the "Product Details."
For the hearing people, enjoy this top quality series that features one of the best heroines of all time. The season one is the best, and the pilot brilliantly sets up the characters. Dr. Quinn and Sully embody the conscience of the white people, and their charisma carries the show.
I hope that the DVD set will be availble for the rest of the seasons, and WITH closed captions for the hearing impared.

This is a review of Dr. Quinn for those who would run a mile from anything described as "wholesome family entertainment" (intending no disrespect to those who appreciate such shows). Yes, children were part of the intended audience of this series, and a lot of the characters' delivery reflects that knowledge, but there were other, more adult aspects of the show that usually aren't given enough credit.

Dr. Quinn and Sully: Sure, Joe Lando's Sully looked like the cover of a romance novel, but the fact remains that these were two very good looking people with a lot of chemistry. In the first couple of seasons, the sexual tension between them was so palpable you could cut it with a knife.

Whatever edge the show had came primarily from Jane Seymour, a sometimes underrated actress who could go to some pretty dark emotional places in the show's more dramatic episodes.

Season One was the most innovative musically and cinematically. The show that year had a movie look, with a lot of visual depth to scenes, imaginative camera work, and an evocative musical score. Any episode in the series directed by James Keach is a feast for the eyes, and perhaps not surprisingly, as he is her real-life husband, Jane's beauty is particularly mesmerizing in Keach's shows.

There was a recurring cast of Native American characters that is rare if not unheard of in modern television. Many of the best North American Indian actors (with special kudos to Tantoo Cardinal) appeared in "Dr. Quinn" through the run of the series. Season Three's episode Washita, the culmination of what in fact was a historical event, is one of the most powerful hours of television I've ever seen.

Most tellingly, Dr. Quinn tackled some very loaded social issues.

Ditching my TV in the mid 1980s made me happy. There was not much worth watching. When I acquired a secondhand TV ten years later, it was for video movies only (and then DVDs, when they became popular). But I was running out of movies. I was sick of all the gratuitous sex and violence--and the depiction of women as vapid sex kittens, their value in meeting Mr. Right, and men as James Bond clones.

Then I met Dr. Quinn.

The glowing Amazon reviews inspired me to start renting. What I was not prepared for was how feminism suffuses this series. What are "family values," exactly? Not the insipid standards from sit-com land, where humor consists of putting someone down at the expense of another. These "family values" are kindness, reverence for nature, respect of people regardless of race or short, the golden rule to treat others as one would want to be treated. A TV show that includes respect for women as independent, intelligent people is a rare find. But one might expect this in a series that a woman conceived, women produced, and where the majority of episodes were written by women as well.

The feminism in Dr. Quinn is not devoid of art. It's not a political statement smacking you in the face. It's an organic part of the story. The story is always first, which is what makes this show so great. We sympathize with Dr. Quinn as she struggles against the sexism and patronizing attitudes of the townspeople, trying to set down roots as the "lady doctor."

Racism takes its rightful place alongside feminism. We are rightfully horrified by the white people's mistreatment of the sensitively portrayed Cheyenne Indians (of particular note is the wonderful wise character of Cloud Dancing).

Why do these DVDs cost so much?
Hi Rivers...

I agree these cost way more then most other vintage tv shows. Little House series runs about half the price. I love this show and bought mine through the outside sellers. You can find some really good dealers. Look for the best deal from sellers with good feedback. Even sold new... Read More
