Dr. Mark Sloan, a very busy guy, was the Chief of internal medicine at fictional Community General Hospital in Los Angeles. Not only did he treated patients, he also teach young doctors at Community General. Over all that, he maintained a private practice and served as a special consultant to the L.A.P.D. and that gave him the most pleasure.
Working with Dr.Sloan were:
* Jack: a handsome young resident at the hospital who did double job as Mark's legman.
* Amanda: also a resident at Community General specialized in pathology.
* Steve (Dr. Sloan son): a detective on the L.A.P.D.
The cast for this show are:
*Dr.Mark Sloan ..... Dick Van Dyke
*Dr.Jack Stewart (1993-1995) ..... Scott Baio
*Amanda Bentley Livingston ..... Victoria Rowell

Think about it---Dick Van Dyke and the creators were geniuses in their day. They were the pre-cursors to all the CSI shows and others like it. They did the forensics and solved murders, but in a much less gruesome way. Diagnosis Murder is a G-rated show that solves crimes in a thought provoking way, without showing all the blood and guts all the CSI and other shows do. You can actually sleep after watching the show.
Dick Van Dyke and the cast are like a huge family (no pun intended since his son Barry has a lead role) and the camaraderie comes through to make for a very enjoyable and family friendly show. Young and old, cool and nerdy, single or married, people from all walks of life can and will enjoy this wonderful show.
Amazon, if you could pass along all the positive feedback to the producers, so that they can see how much people desperately want the other seasons on DVD, I think I speak for all fans of the show when I say, "we'd GREATLY appreciate it!"
To readers, buy this DVD and you won't be disappointed. The show is AWESOME!
Van Dyke is no Rob Petrie in this one. He still has a friendly bedside manner and easygoingness that he has in the original Van Dyke show, but its not one liners and jokes that makes this shows. Its a friendly snoop that Dick brings to this show, like TV's Columbo, without the "MY WIFE SAID..., SIR".
The ensemble cast meshes together well. With dick's son Barry Van Dyke as Sloan's son Steve, Happy Days's Scott Baio as Dr.Jack Stewart, and Victoria Rowell as Amanda, the cast supports Van Dyke's witty detective style
an extra bonus, the DVD has the Jake and the Fat Man episode that introduced Van Dyke as the Dr Sloan.However the two hour pilot is not included in this set, nor is there an audio commentary (FOR SHAME). Would love to heard Van Dyke talk about an episode of two or even an interview with him
Its a great family series, Enjoyable
