Back in the day, medical dramas were primarily soap operas with a focus on people's multitudinous troubles and the occasional rare, but life-threatening "are-we-gonna-renew-his-contract-next-season-or-not" disease thrown in for good measure.

Marcus Welby, MD was different. It was the first network program to have more of a true medical focus, and yet it kept a good balance, interweaving the medical theme with the drama of people's storm-tossed lives. I've read that medical professionals thought highly of this show, because of its fairly accurate depiction of a general practitioner's day-to-day life.

And Marcus Welby was such a likable character. And the show's writing was stellar. I still remember so many wonderful quotes from the show and I could probably sit down and recite a dozen of the story lines - just from memory. It made *that* kind of impression.

The show first aired on ABC in 1969 and one year later, actor Robert Young won an Emmy for his portrayal of Dr. Welby. In 1972, he won the Golden Globe Award. Interestingly, another medical drama, "Medical Center" (remember that hunky Chad Everett?) also hit the airwaves in 1969.

I came to this site, hoping against hope that Marcus Welby, MD had been put onto DVD but am saddened to see that it hasn't happened yet.

If you think it's time to get Marcus Welby, MD onto DVD, how about a "yes" vote for this review and let's show them how many people are paying attention and better yet - ready to pay *money* to see this show again (and again).

If you liked Robert Young as Jim Anderson in "Father Knows Best", then you'll just adore him in this long overdue to DVD As Marcus Welby, the kindly old time doctor whom every family would like to call their own. Imagine, a doctor who actually cares about his patients. Whooda thunk it. Try that today! Anyhoo, why is it not on DVD yet? Come on guys. Lets get the ball rollin' and show the folks what real TV was like. Not like today's stuff, let me tell ya!

I have been checking Amazon hoping to find Marcus Welby on DVD for a long time now. It was a great show and I am hoping to see it offered in the near future. The shows on TV today are not even worth watching. I think that it is wonderful to purchase the old shows and let my son appreciate how good TV used to be. I don't know what the writers are thinking today most of them have their minds in the gutter and it does not set good examples for the younger generation.

Format: DVD
Marcus Welby, M.D., which ran from '69 - '76, was lauded as a landmark medical drama for its time and garnered multiple Emmys for its well thought out and acted story-lines. Robert Young as "Dr. Marcus Welby" effectively portrayed the critical yet sympathetic physician who never hesitated to act in the best interests of his patients, sometimes going above and beyond the call of duty. The supporting roles were admirably portrayed by James Brolin as "Dr. Steve Kiley" and Elena Verdugo as "Consuelo Lopez". The fine quality of this show set the tone for medical dramas to come. I can think of no more deserving drama to be released to DVD -- all seven seasons, uncut and restored. This classic TV drama deserves its place on the library shelves of discerning viewers.

I am saddened to find that you can't buy the seasons of Marcus Welby on DVD yet when so many other shows are available.
This was such a wonderful heartwarming show. Robert Young was ahead of his time with this show.

Format: DVD
I was only a teenager when this show came on, but I liked it and watched it most every week. Ol' Dr. Marcus gave each and every one of his patients his utmost care and professional attention, and his credentials, ethics and medical knowledge were beyond reproach. Today, we have all sorts of assorted bozos coming out of medical schools who I wouldn't let care for a pooch I didn't like. Bring on the DVD's guys!!
And I agree with one other poster that today's TV is unmitigated trash...poor writing, acting, the whole bit...never watch the junk myself.
