Editorial Reviews

Chad Everett and James Daly return to resolve more life-and-death crises in Season Three of this groundbreaking series. A surgeon facing the loss of his hands. A cancer victim keeping her illness a secret. A physician succumbing to drink. These are just some of the issues addressed by university hospital doctors Joe Gannon (Everett) and Paul Lochner (Daly) as they mend the bodies and ease the minds of their troubled colleagues, students and patients. Featuring appearances by an impressive array of guest stars including Oscar® winner* Michael Douglas, Ida Lupino, Vera Miles, Kim Hunter, Leslie Nielsen and Thunderball's Claudine Auger, Medical Center: The Complete Third Season is a six-disc 24-episode collection that remains as compelling today as when it originally aired during the 1971/72 season.

*Actor in a Leading Role, Wall Street, 1987

Right from the first episode---awesome! Very impressed with the quality of drama brought by this season. Dr Gannon's cool under fire demeanor sets the standard for smarts--setting his patients on the positive track to recovery--physical and emotional. There's no need for bloody scenes and foul language to "wake-up-your-viewers" with scripts like Med Center--and season 3 kicks'it up a notch. Product of a time when script writers actually used their brains to build suspense. Try to find that anywhere on TV today. Warner Archives: YOU ROCK!!! Keep'em coming!!

Again, Medical Center : The Complete Third Season has not disappointed this fan. Each episode has brought controversial 1970's topics to the forefront with great acting from all, and again the OR scenes are very real. Chad Everett and James Daly remain the stars, and seem to bring a depth of compassion and reality to all of the episodes. I love the Third season, but as a huge and dedicated fan of one Chad Everett, I could be said to be a tad biased. I look forward to more of Medical Center !

We have the First and Second seasons of this show and it's one of my favorite, top five television series. We watch a lot of old time movies/series on DVD and this is always one that I like to take off the shelf again and again. Chad Everett's acting skills are amazing and the show's cast is usually great as well! We had trouble with the second season, because some of the episodes would freeze up or wouldn't work at all. :-/ But except for a brief pause on a few of the episodes in this third season, we enjoyed it immensely. :) Definitely recommend buying this if you like Chad Everett and lots of action.

I was in elementry school when the show debuted.Growing up in south la in the 60's and the 70's this show was top notch. Chad Everett and James Daly never got enough credit for their outstanding acting ability. And Chad was "DROP DEAD" gorgeous

I was delighted to see that season 3 is finally out. I bought the first two and loved them, though I agree with others that the reproduction quality leaves something to be desired. I assume that's because they're using worn or damaged film sources and are not cleaning or remastering from originals, as is often the case these days with older releases. They're also an "on demand" product, which sometimes lessens the quality. Still, I was happy to get them for the content, since I loved Medical Center as a kid, and I was young enough that now I have only vague memories of the plot lines.

This time around, though, that steep $60 price tag has given me pause. I may buy anyway, but will think it through for a day or two--not sure I can complete a whole series (assuming they ever even release it all) at that price level. So, my rating is based on price and previous products. If I buy, I may update this review after I see the third season.

9/29/13 A follow-up. I did buy the 3d season at that $60+ price tag, and wished I'd waited a bit: Amazon dropped the price the next day, and I see it's dropped again now. Too bad they don't refund with that kind of timing. I will say that the audio and video quality of these disks are much better than the first two seasons, and the show itself is everything we remember it to be. At this new lower price, I definitely recommend the set. I noticed, too, that there's a listing now for a remastered first season. If I hadn't already bought the first two, that's the one I'd go for.

This set is a great buy. It contains many of my favorite episodes. I get very nostalgic when watching these DVDs. I feel 30+ years younger and watching the DVDs makes exercising and cleaning the house almost enjoyable. It's also interesting to watch them to remember the clothes styles and social issues during the 80s.

My wife is a great fan of Medical Center and will get a lot of use out of this product but the quality is somewhat deficient. There are several times where the video is frozen for a bit and the volume changes between some episodes and even sometimes within an episode.

There are always one or two episodes from each season that really stand out. For me, the true standout from this season is the two-parter "Shock". I have vivid recollection of this episode, even though I first saw it go to air here in Australia back in the early '70s. I agree with another reviewer's suggestion that "Medical Center" enjoyed some brilliant scriptwriting and expert casting throughout its run. How great it is to be able to re-live it. Thank you so much Warner Archive and Amazon.
