TV Shows - St. Elsewhere

A combination intense medical drama, soap and high comedy with many surreal moments in between, this originally aired on NBC prime time from 1982 to 1988 with most of the action taking place within the walls of St. Eligius- a fictious rundown Boston hospital. While the hospital was constantly in danger of being torn down or dismantled, it was often the site of many then-current cutting edge medical breakthroughs as well as quite a few controversies not always related to the medical field. A plethora of performers went through those walls including future stars Denzel Washington and Eric Lanueville- and this was the show to see many past and future comedy legends such as Ed Begley,Jr, Stephen (Flounder)Furst and Howie Mandel (yes, Mr. 'Deal or No Deal) hit dramatic heights seldom seen before or since in their careers. Of course, this show also had its now legendary ending with the debatably brilliant/infuriating twist of it being revealed that the entire show's action had taken place within the mind of an autistic child inspired by television and the most famous snow-globe since 'Citizen Kane's Rosebud!

1 This was the greatest medical drama I have ever seen. The acting was brilliant as was the script writing. I still miss this show. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 1:14 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Yeah, one of the biggest kicks in the ass a TV show could ever give to the audience (an autistic kid's dream, WTF are you KIDDING me?!). I mean, what did the writers think, that it was CLEVER?! Or did they simply run out of every conceivable idea which ever existed or ever WILL exist? A huge disappoinment to fans a a massive failure for anyone involved in writing or producing it. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 17, 2009, 6:01 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 When I saw the series finale with the snow globe, I felt as though the writers and producers had just given the viewers a giant RASPBERRY for all the time and energy we'd spent following and caring about the series and its characters! And, decades later, my friends wondered why I wasn't willing to follow 'Lost' to the bitter end. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 3, 2009, 7:02 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
