Editorial Reviews

The head of surgery may be "knife happy"...a runaway refuses to seek parental permission for a life-saving procedure...a research scientist ignores the side effects of his miracle cure for Hodgkin's disease. These are just some of the problems facing doctor and resident heartthrob Joseph Gannon (Chad Everett) and Chief of Staff Paul Lochner (James Daly) in the 6-Disc 26-Episode Debut Season of Medical Center, the influential series that ran from 1969 to 76. Known for tackling cutting-edge issues, the series also featured elite guest stars, including Season One's Dyan Cannon, Tyne Daly, Mercedes McCambridge, Slim Pickens, Walter Pidgeon, William Shatner, Martin Sheen, Richard Thomas, Cicely Tyson and more.

Ive waited a very long time for this show to be released, and am thrilled with the finished product. Takes you back to a different time and place (the first show stars O. J. Simpson in a fairly good performance), but as always the show shines due to performances by Chad Everett and James Daly, and a truly amazing supporting cast. The special guest stars are a who's who of old studio system stars and supporting players, many of whom disappear from view after this. What today we take for granted as to attitudes on social issues, these subjects were brand new in our social discourse in the late 60's, early 70's. Always handled with special care without being overly preachy, the writers took risks at the time that other shows often did not (re: Marcus Welby MD - another treat from the time). I look forward to the next season and beyond, Warner Bros Archives willing. Highly recommended!!

I saw this series when it was first shown on TV. The issues addressed are just as relevant now as they were 50+ years ago when this series was first aired. This ground-breaking series dealt with subjects such as abortion, complex family relationships, hysterical illnesses, witchcraft and homosexuality--subjects that were all but taboo in the 1960's. These subjects were dealt with in a sensitive, objective manner and the performances by Chad Everett and by James Daley were superb. I recommend this series to anyone interested in watching classic TV that avoids the overflow of vulgarity, rudeness, and disrespect included in so much of modern-day television. I hope WB will release this series in its entirety.

I purchased this DVD set with an Amazon Gift Card. Watching these videos, I know now why CBS scheduled this series at 9:00 p.m. in Los Angeles, because by that time little kids would be asleep, and the adults could watch this medical drama. There's no way as a little kid I would have understood this.

I was impressed with the quality, the content, the medical terminology, and the seriousness of Medical Center. The majority of Medical Center is new to me, since I had only seen a few episodes in syndication as a teenager in the 1980's. Like other reviewers mentioned, issues were covered tactfully, and I applaud the Respect Life aspect that Dr. Gannon upheld in several episodes (I don't think you would see that on Gray's Anatomy). Dr. Gannon and his colleagues also show the human side of medicine, where external factors and family issues are explored.

I know Chad Everett spent a great deal of time researching and preparing for the role of Dr. Gannon. Oftentimes, he would go on rounds with real-life medical students, interns, and residents, as well as watch surgeries. I read that real-life nurses and a real-life anesthesiologist were often used in the operating room scenes.

While the show does look a little dated, but I always like to see the old big cars, particularly a black Chrysler Imperial and the old smooth riding Cadillac Ambulances. I happened to notice some Brown Bomber uniforms too on the ambulance drivers. It took me about 20 minutes to recognize guest stars Tom Skerritt and Robert Pine (I recognized Walter Koenig immediately as a 4th year medical student), and I kept waiting for guest star Pat Hingle to call Batman on the telephone. I was also impressed with the lady psychiatrist - Dr. Jeanne Bartlett - that Dr.

Warner Brothers has done a really nice job packaging this First Season set of Medical Center. The transfers are clean and sharp, and the sound quality is good as well. More importantly though we get to relive(or see for the first time) some serious TV drama from this time period. Although most of it is dated and a bit melodramatic, that is part of the fun! The outstanding roster of guest stars is the best part for me. I just wish there were some extras/commentary to accompany this great little time capsule. I look forward to purchasing the Second Season of Medical Center when it becomes available. Recommended.

I just received the 1st Season of the show "Medical Center," which my husband bought for me for our Anniverary. I watched the show starting in 1969 and continued to watch it the full seven seasons. I've very impressed with the quality of the DVD (it was remastered). As only the First Season is available at this time, I hope and encourage the following Six Seasons be made available soon! I would definitely buy them! I loved the show as a teen, and watching it again has been a lot of fun. I would highly recommend this DVD!

I missed watching this show since the 1970s. It has taken to long for you to put it out on dvd. But I was so excited to finally get season one. I wish you would hurry and put out season 2. It was as good as I remember. thank you.

Just like they'll never be another Sean Connery for James Bond, they'll never be another Chad Everett for Dr. Gannon. He's the best. If I ever had a serious medical condition, I would want Dr. Gannon In charge for sure! I waited for (literally) dacades for this series to come out on DVD. This series is the pilot for many other medical shows of the 70's and 80's. Can't wait for season 2 to come out!
