Sully:(to Brian in the cave)/i>Even when we're far apart we're still together.
For some time we've wanted to do a more serious medical show, i.e., one in which the town is presented with an overall medical crisis. There hasn't been any kind of epidemic in town to speak of, since the first episode which I wrote, so it seemed only fitting that I would write this one as well. It was a bit nostalgic for me in that I was revisiting memories of the first show -- the brand new comraderie and our determination to succeed even though we were many months from being on the air.
What this meant to me was a chance to really do what I enjoy doing the most with the characters, which is to get in to the innermost part of them and how they are challenged when life is at its darkest. I also enjoy bringing Dr. Mike's Boston family out to Colorado Springs and dealing with those issues.
