Watching good medical drama is one of the things I love to do when I am home. I'm naturally inclined to those shows because of my being in the healthcare profession. My top favorites are House, Nurse Jackie, Grey's Anatomy (less on the medical, more on the "dark, twisted" drama), and of course, E.R. Eventhough these aforementioned shows are great and patterned well on their real-life counterparts, they are still make-believe.
It is still different when the series is the real thing. The rush and excitement is amplified. You'll be given a blow-by-blow account of what really happens in a medical setting and the daily struggles and triumph doctors and nurses face. These are the real life drama shown in the new eight part docu-drama series entitled NY Med which first aired last July 10th.
Produced by the same people behind Hopkins and Boston Med, the series is set at the prestigious Columbia and Weill Cornell Medical Centers of The New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
The most famous personality in the series is Dr. Mehmet Oz. He is a cardiothoracic surgeon who later became a television personality by first appearing on Oprah back in 2004. Years later, Oprah (Harpo Productions) produced a show for him entitled The Dr. Oz Show.
I doubt if this docu-drama will be aired in our country. I'll just wait for the DVD set again just like I did with Hopkins. *sigh*
