  • Absolutely LOVE this show!!!

    This show is informative, insightful, thought provoking, and at times, infuriating when obvious clues are over looked, but right now, I want some answers. I saw an episode where a severely depressed man

    was allowed to literally wast away as he willed himself to death over months after his ex-lover refused him visitation of his daughter. He simply could not muster the will to live. How excruciating for him AND he lived with his sister who was either too self-absorbed to notice any changes like an increasingly emaciated brother who refused to get out of bed or eat much as he developed a deadly impacted feces problem which seeped into his blood stream. How can this happen? Are people so uncaring that they can't see the forest through the trees? This is a horrific tragedy that DID NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN. This is a warning to all who don't take depression seriously. DEPRESSION KILLS. And my heart is broken for this obviously sad beyond feeling any hope at all. If he had been my brother, I would have INSISTED, IF NOT ADMITTED HIM UNDER A 51/50 hold to dtermine if he was a threat to himself or others. When are we going to stop burying our heads in the sand and do what God has strictly instructed us to do? I, for one, know exactly where I am going because I have been following my B.ASIC I.NSTRUCTIONS B.FOR L.EAVING T.HIS E.ARTH (BIBLE), and to allow another human being to suffer to such magnitude will surely make you accountable. I hope you have a really good story because the end is nigh and we will ALL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR OUR BEHAVIOR. Have you been a blessing today. If you don't live your life accordingly, you had better start getting really terrified because the clock is ticking and there is a special place for self-centered, cruel, non-believers. Believe me now, or repent and say "you were right later". It's your choice and it's not too late.moreless
  • I have watched this show for about three years. Absolutely fascinating to watch Dr. G trace down the exact cause of death, especially in cases that are extremely hard. Her compassion to families is wonderful.moreless

    I have watched this show for about three years. What a fascinating thing to watch one of the best Medical Examiners in the country do her job. I love watching her do a step by step analysis of the last hours of the person's life to trace the exact cause of death, even when there is seemingly no cause and the autopsy does not reveal what she expected. Her compassion and sensitivity with the families of the deceased are extraordinary, as is the obligation she feels to obtain answers for them. I have watched her over and over assure grieving families that they played no part in the death. Without that, these people may have spent the rest of their lives feeling guilty. She clearly sees the cases she deals with as human beings, even when they were flawed and contributed to their own deaths. I do not need to see the actual autopsy uncensored to fully enjoy this show. My own husband collapsed and died suddenly last year, and I myself was comforted and reassured that I could not have prevented it. I decided to return to college at 56 and am now studying professional Medical Coding and Billing, which includes Anatomy, Terminology, etc. Dr. G's show has helped me to become familiar with many of the terms I am now encountering. I just wish there were more new episodes.moreless

    I really like Dr. G she get the point of thing, and she knows her job well. She also points out of how a person life is by telling us if he or she had a hard life, and what they could of done, to have a longer life. With Dr. G., she could save alot of people, by telling us about others peoples, health, so we can get a reality check, and get ourselves to the Doctor. I Heard that Dr. G is going to do a Full Examination and Autopsy on Caylee, can anyone let me know if thats true or not. My Husband said Yes its true.moreless
  • I love Dr. G, i watch her show whenever i can. I do wish the was a way to watch the show uncensored and that you can see the actual procedures. Dr. Michael Baden does live and uncensored atopsies on HBO and I would love to see Dr. G do them as well maybemoreless

    I love Dr. G, i watch her show whenever i can. I do wish there was a way to watch the show uncensored and that you can see the actual procedures with blurs over the bodies or organs. Dr. Michael Baden does live and uncensored autopsies on HBO and I would love to see Dr. G do them as well maybe one day. I've always wanted to become an Embalmer and learn about death and the human body. If anyone is interested in these topics too try reading the book "Stiff" it's a wonderful look into the human body after life.moreless
