And it's about time somebody spoofed them the way they deserve. "Childrens Hospital - Complete 1st & 2nd Seasons" mocks the soapy storylines and over-the-top melodrama of these medical shows, and never once removes its tongue from its cheek. It's immature, silly, and wonderfully offensive -- seriously, if you are a politically correct person DO NOT WATCH!
"Childrens Hospital" is a hospital founded by Dr. Arthur Childrens, supervised by an alluringly handicapped Chief and populated by several attractive doctors. These doctors spend most of their time wandering the halls having "profound" thoughts, making out in front of patients, and occasionally messing around in the operating room.
The first season has an interesting collection of stories: Dr. Lola Spratt (Erinn Hayes) pretends to have a brain tumor, which quickly spirals out of control; sexy Dr. Cat Black (Lake Bell) who has a torrid affair with a six-year-old suffering from Advanced Aging Disease; and clown doctor Blake becomes obsessed with curing people with the power of laughter.
In the second season, the hospital has a new administrator, Sy Mittleman, who is hated by everyone except the Chief (who is hot for him), and a sexy new doctor. The staff is rocked by deadly childbirth, a return from the dead, missing siblings, nerd affairs, a sensual rabbi, a sexual heat wave, Take Your Daughter To Work Day, and Big Pharma threatening Glenn after he learns that butterfly fluid can cure cancer.
"Childrens Hospital" started as a series of low-budget webisodes, which since got turned into an actual series on Adult Swim.Read more ›
With that warning out of the way, all I can say is that these snippets of hilarity contain more actual laughs in their brief running time than most standard length sitcoms will in much longer airings. "Childrens Hospital," for the uninitiated, is a broad spoof of every medical drama you've ever seen. Episodes are highlighted by a philosophical narration (think "Grey's Anatomy") that ponders life, death, love and other absurdities though the lens of narcissism and selfishness.Read more ›
