5.0 out of 5 stars Before its time! December 15, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These shows were just excellent. I had never seen them before but being a big Richard Boone fan I had heard about the show and wanted to see it. I must say that I found these shows to be very compelling. The show was before its time. They discuss several topics that are hard hitting and they pull no punches. I watched one show about a woman that found out that she has a lump on her breast. The show went thru her diagnosis and then her finding out that she has breast cancer and needs to have a masectomy. It also goes into depth about her feeling and her fears not only about her own fate but about her relationship with her fiance.

I expected sappy watered down sanitized stuff from this era. I was pleasantly suprised to find that this was not the case with The Medic. Also Richard Boone does the intro as he introduces each piece as a doctor of medicine. He is very convincing in this role. Also you might see several people who went on to become famous on the big screen and on TV.

4.0 out of 5 stars The 16 Episode Collection September 23, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Episodes September 23, 2010
Format:DVD
I only recently discovered this series and am really enjoying it. Unfortunately only a few episodes are available (the ones that have fallen into the Public Domain).

This volume contains:

General Practitioner
When Mama Says Jump
World So High
The Strange Ending
The Wild Intruder
Break Through the Bars
My Brother Joe
Awake Into Spring

There is also a Volume 2 with 8 more episodes Medic V. 2, or a set that has all 16 Medic, Vol. 16 Episodes. Maybe someday complete seasons will come out, but enjoy these for now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Medic Vol. 1 April 15, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

Watch the doctors, nurses and medical staff in these hospitals. Listen to every word they say. Listen to the morlistic judgements and wrong assumptions. Listen to the bad medicine that was state of the art knowledge when this stuff was first aired. The thing I find most funny about not just Medic but Ben Casey and Dr. Kildare too is they all smoked like Pittsburgh Steel chimneys in their hayday. Whenever I see a doctor offer a patient a cigarette I think to myself, "Drumming Up Business Are We?" as I laugh and my autistic brother gives me his patented what's wrong with that AUTISTIC WEREWOLF now look!

Speaking of autism imagine what it would be like going into one of these olden days hospitals with autism. I don't have to imagine what it was like to be an autistic patient seen by the kinds of doctors on Medic, I lived through it. No matter how horroble you think it was triple it. Of the three Ben Casey, Medic and Dr. Kildare Medica always tried to be more accurate and faithful to the real world life of doctors, patients and diseases it portrayed. Medic was also notable for its prelogue that introduced a sort of disease of the week. Also in Medic you were not apt to see so many patients dying. Dr. Kildare's patients had about a 50% survival rate. On the early years of Ben Casey patients died like flies left in an airtight jar on a windowsill in the height of an August heatwave,

Watch Medic and see just how primative 1950's medicine was. Look at how cold and dungeon like the buildings appeared. Now for video quality these are perhaps the best footage to be had of these very old TV programs. You must remember TV was in its infancy when Medic was produced so image quality ws not terribly good to begin with.
