  1. S2: E1 No Recovery

    Haven't decided which is soapier, this or Chicago Gabby, er, Fire. Both have red trucks and people who don't follow chain of command because they Care!So!Much!/Take!It!Personally! and put on shameless PDA in the house.
  2. S02.E02: The Prince and The Pauper

    Not to mention the fact that meters/test strips are now considered "durable medical equipment." I'm buying generic ones now, out of my own pocket rather than deal with the quagmire that is Medicare. Back on topic, I really enjoyed the woman selling "doctor gadgets." Mrs. Torqy and I are still making jokes about the artificial sphincter.
  3. I finally gave up on this show a couple seasons ago. Just checked in here to see what's being said. Thanks to all for validating my decision!
  4. S05.E02: Fog of War

    I am sure that the general/admiral in the white shirt in the war room is a mole, he's just too sketchy. Ensign Swain is also a good possibility. Some of the writers on this show must have worked on 24. There's a mole in CTU!!! I can't look at Marissa Neitling now without seeing Skyler. (If you also watch Elementary you're already laughing)
  5. S02.07 Part VII

    My theory is that Vera killed the Beacon because he intended to sacrifice Julian as they did with the calf.
  6. S02.07 Part VII

    Mrs. Torqy predicts that
  7. S06.E20: Fit To Be Tied

    No one else clocked that gorgeous '54 Kaiser Manhattan Bazemore's neighbor was polishing?? Get off my lawn!
  8. S01.E10: Not Your Hero

    What they said above! My sister in law was married to a firefighter. She just hated shows about firefighters because no matter how good the initial premise, they just ended up as soaps with red trucks.
  9. S01.E14: Total Eclipse of the Heart

    Check out the movie Double Jeopardy to see Bruce Greenwood play a sleazy character quite well. Someone upthread wondered if there are enough cancer patients; when Mrs. Torqy was getting chemo for lymphoma (she survives and thrives well) the chemo room as well as the waiting room were always jumping. Sadly there seem to be an endless supply... Re the paper patient files, Mrs. T and I see different docs in the same practice. My doc is appx. 50 and he uses a laptop for my records. Mrs. T's doc, early 70's, though a very good doc, is old-school and writes in a paper chart and will give her a paper scrip on request. Am I the only one who thinks Greenwood has rattlesnake-looking eyes in certain lighting and camera angles?
  10. S01.E11: And the Nurses Get Screwed

    Prolly hits too close to home?? A friend is a semi-retired doc. He said he tuned out of the pilot after Bell killed the first few patients.
  11. S03.E01: Third Year

    Chekhov's video? Love it! Why are you not writing this show?
  12. S01.E09: Lost Love

    I am not in the medical field, but I called the ectopic early on, because I still remember Ralph Bellamy spitting out the words "Ectopic pregnancy!!" and shaking his head in Rosemary's Baby. Seems TV recycles even old ideas... This is why I watch almost everything except news and sports with captions on.
  13. S02.E17: Gag Order

    Thanks @Dowel Jones!
  14. S02.E17: Gag Order

    Once again, either I was dozing or the DVR hiccupped (Curse you, DirecTV). When did Cable appear, and where, at the end?? Thanx in advance!
  15. S03.E11: Folie à Deux

    Thank you @Ailianna!
