Editorial Reviews

Making its TV debut in 1954, Medic was one of the first medical dramas to appear on American television. Documenting the lives of a group of doctors, the show is unflinching in its depiction of a real-world medical cases and the often gruesome events doctors face on a daily basis. Not only that, it also portrays the strain that the medical profession places on doctors' shoulders, schedules, and more importantly, their families. Notably, each episode of Medic is introduced by Doctor Konrad Styner (Richard Boone) and is dedicated to those who work in the field of medicine. This release includes sixteen episodes of Medic and features the guest appearances of Dennis Hopper, Charles Bronson, and lee J. Cobb in the episodes of "Boy In The Storm," "Break Through The Bars," and "My Brother Joe."

Amazon tends to not supply all the pertinent information about some of the titles listed, so I thought I'd pass this along for people who might find it useful.

MEDIC was a 1954 television anthology with each episode following a different doctor face a particular medical problem. It aired for two years, winning 2 Emmy Awards (with 10 nominations).

This collection combines two volumes that are also available separately. The episodes included are:

DISC #1
General Practitioner (Season 1, # 28)
When Mama Says Jump (2.7)
World So High (2.12)
The Strange Ending (2.31)
The Wild Intruder (1.11)
Break Through the Bars (1.20)
My Brother Joe (1.6)
Awake Into Spring (2.21)
DISC #2
Breath of Life (1.15)
Candle of Hope (2.8)
Flash of Darkness (1.17)
Just Like Your Father (2.15)
Vagrant Heart, Vagrant Cup (1.5)
A Time to Be Alive (1.16)
Boy in the Storm (1.14)
Who Search for Truth (2.18)

The episode "Flash of Darkness" is the only one host Richard Boone actually acted in, rushing to help survivors of a nuclear blast. Hopefully the entire series will become available soon. Recommended.

Despite the understandably low quality of the DVD, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing this series again as I remembered it fondly. Even though there have been outstanding medical breakthroughs in the intervening decades, this show stood out as an interesting and informative source of information. It is also a treat to see some actors who went on to much bigger and better things.

I think the reason that Medic stood out from the other early TV series in the US was not because it was so good,so much as that the others were so bad. They were all shot on shoe-string budgets. But at least Medic had a mission to open up medical and health practices to the public. This was an era when the word "pregnant" could not be mentioned on TV because the TV audience was perceived as having invited the programs "into their own homes." Likewise the doctor-patient relationship differed dramatically from the norm today. For example, it was considered ethical not to tell people that they were dying but only to tell their family members. This would be unthinkable now. Medic had decently plotted scripts which contrasted with the inanities of The People's Choice, to cite one particularly inane TV show. Or how about Topper? But Medic doesn't hold up the way the Twilight Zone does.
