Thanks To ABC For “Hopkins” Mini-Series
Earlier this summer, we chatted about the debut of “Hopkins” on ABC and the sometimes, overly dramatic Grey’s Anatomy.
Well… Robyn (my wife) and I just watched the seventh-and-final episode of this very unique, very touching mini-series about the reality of working at Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore Maryland.
I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed this show.
Yes, Robyn and I intently watched the complex and nerve-wracking heart surgery cases that were presented throughout the series. However, the other medical miracles documented throughout the show (especially the three-way liver transplant) were equally amazing. But, above all things, we appreciated the honesty of the patients, caregivers, doctors and nurses within the show – even when that honesty brought both of us to tears.
If you have the time, I would highly recommend watching Hopkins. I believe the series is now available for download at iTunes.com and DVD.
Keep on tickin!
P.S. I didn’t want to ruin it for you at the beginning of the show… But, Doctor Brian Bethea (Cardiothoracic Surgeon) ended-up reconciling with his wife. They are now living with their three children in Texas. Dr. Bethea has taken a new position at the University of Texas – Southwestern Medical Center.
