The Corner

The one and only.

Medical TV Shows


Even in the Corner, there are people who consume way more pop culture than I do. But it occurred to me that by the standards of tv, Scrubs (mentioned in a few posts earlier this week) is, musical numbers aside, relatively realistic. . . . Any nominees for a show that’s more so? . . . As an aside, the Ponnuru family’s judgment in this matter is questionable. My mother, a retired pediatrician, used to take they-would-never-do-that potshots at ER all the time, but had no trouble with Dick van Dyke roller skating down the halls of a hospital and solving murders (or whatever it was he did).
