Last night the ABC network premiered a new drama called Combat Hospital. Set in 2006 in Kandahar Province Afghanistan it focuses on the work of an group of International Doctors from Canada, the United States, the UK, and Australia.
The show is fast paced, as I am sure the hospital would be in real life, and I believe it celebrates the work that these dedicated medical professional do each and everyday.
I Tweeted that I was going to watch it, and one of the other posted that it is like a cross between M*A*S*H and China Beach. I do have to agree, but without the humor of M*A*S*H and without Dana Delaney from China Beach.
We will have to wait and see how the show fairs as the season progresses but I do like what I see so far. The staying power of any program has to be the story line. One of the things I liked best about Law and Order was that it was not really about the characters. You did not know much about their private lives only about the job. I hope this drama is cut from the same cloth.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it an 8 to start, we will see where it goes from here.
