In its first season, the series tackled such hot-button issues as abortion, substance abuse, and autism. No matter what life or medical crisis befell his patients, Welby responded in a reassuring, nonjudgmental manner. In the episode "Go Get 'Em, Tiger," he compels a school board to hire Kiley's former benefactor (guest star Jack Albertson), who is now a reforming heroin addict. In "Enid" he pleads for understanding in the case of a compassionate teacher who is addicted to prescription drugs. Welby could get radical. In "Dance to No Music," he stages a public confrontation to break through to a man convinced he has a crippling genetic disorder. Marcus Welby, M.D. earned an Emmy for Best Dramatic Series. Young and Brolin were also honored. The humanistic scripts are exceptional, and guest stars--veteran character actors and future stars (including a pre-Partridge Family David Cassidy)--rose to the occasion. Joe Campenella is a standout in "Dance to the Music" as the man who fears he has Huntington's disease. This seven-disc set includes the original pilot movie, A Matter of Humanities, in which Welby, felled by a heart attack, hires Kiley to help him run his suburban practice, which he operates out of his Santa Monica home. Marcus Welby, M.D. has rarely made the rounds in syndication. For fans of the series, this is the ultimate house call. --Donald Liebenson
Loved the shows and cast. Story lines aren't as good as in later seasons but what show can boast a better early season than later. Great DVD set!Published 19 hours ago by Michael J. Dedloff
Mis these value driven, family programs. The entertainment industry has sure run amuck these days, severely lacking in values-. having these programs available is refreshing.Published 26 days ago by Helen
