I grew up with some great tv medical dramas, including "Ben Casey" and the short-lived "Medical Story". "St. Elsewhere" set the standards bar extremely high, but all paved the way for the phenomenal "ER" and "Chicago Hope". "Chicago Hope" had a very special quality about it because creator David E. Kelley explored storylines with a focus on ethical and legal barriers to health care provision, and the ensuing dilemmas faced by the medical staff. When I think of "Chicago Hope" I am reminded of the "Dr. Kildare" episode "Behold, The Great Man" which featured guest star James Mason as a gifted surgeon who has to face a Morbidity and Mortality conference. This episode impacted on me greatly, and drove in me an enthusiasm to explore other medical stories with a legal slant. Consequently, I am looking forward to the "Chicago Hope" - Season Two release with much delight.
