1. Welcome to Kandahar

It's 2006: Major Rebecca Gordon, a highly trained trauma surgeon, and Captain Bobby Trang, a brand-new doctor, report for duty at the NATO Role 3 Multinational Medical Unit at Kandahar Airfield, the only advanced surgical care hospital in Southern Afghanistan. Perched at the edge of the airfield, built out of plywood and canvas held together with duct tape, the temporary building that houses the Role 3 shakes every time a plane takes off. The hospital's commander, Colonel Xavier Marks, tells the newcomers to expect an experience unlike any they've had before. Rebecca thinks she can handle anything, while Bobby's acutely conscious of his inexperience. They both get off to a rocky start: it's humbling for both of them as Colonel Marks points out Rebecca's mistakes and tries to build Bobby's confidence. But over the next 48 hours, as they deal with rocket attacks, falling shrapnel and wave after wave of wounded U.S. Marines, Canadian soldiers, Afghan civilians and even a Taliban prisoner-they manage to rise to the challenge, even as they grow more and more exhausted. Welcome to Kandahar.

2. Enemy Within

Rebecca is nearly run over by a pickup truck full of Afghan National Army soldiers heading for the hospital. Their leader -- who turns out to be an American Special Forces operative -- carries in one of his men, delirious with a serious infection, one that neither Rebecca nor Bobby have encountered before. When another patient comes down with the same bacterial infection, it becomes evident that the team is dealing with a highly contagious and antibiotic-resistant strain. They have no idea what it is, where it came from, or how to stop it from spreading as their patients continue to deteriorate. Colonel Marks is left with no choice but to quarantine the OR, ICU and the recovery room - the Role 3 medics are forced to do surgery in the dining hall. If they don't get it under control fast they won't be able to treat the incoming wounded. Meanwhile, Rebecca accompanies Pedersen off base to the Women's Clinic where they find a local in dire need of emergency life-saving surgery.

I thought the series was very interesting and well acted. Since they used allot of footage my son took during his 3 tours there I guess I'm a little biased. Wish it hadn't ended but I suppose they were lucky to get the opportunity to make it. At least it survived a full season except in the States where they never showed the last episode.

Why wasn't this series promotes better? It gave us a window into a modern MASH unit in an unpopular war. We want to forget the reality of war but these Combat hospitals show us what the victories cost us.

I was disappointed that there was only one season - this is a well produced program and one that I will want to watch more than once. The characters were real and they brought to life the war in which our men are involved. It is colorful in that the hospital is staffed with doctors and personel of different nationalities. It gives one a glimpse of what it would be like to be in Afghanistan: the dangers, the bravery, camaraderie, the dedication, as well as some fun.

I haven't finished season 1 but it's been interesting. I don't have any military experience but If I did I think it would support this presentation of a military field hospital. Combat Hospital is all drama; very little, if any, of the comedy found in Mash or China Beach.

This is a good solid series. It is comparable to the old MASH series. It is less comical and a little more into ethical and moral situations. It makes you appreciate the cultural differences between people in different countries and how we need to learn to live together. Everyone needs to make an effort. I recommend this series.

This show gave me a modern view of shows made over a similar material. As a teen, I watched China Beach and as an adult Combat Hospital. I love the way they delivered it as though you could be on base. My only disappointment is that there isn't any seasons beyond the first. So the lacking star in my review is not for those that worked on the show but those executives that shorted the viewers.
