  • This is one of the episodes that sticks in my mind when I think of how the show dealt with social issues like drugs

    I really thought the schoolgirl OD'ing and dying was pretty sobering...and then the mother being in denial about her daughter doing drugs. Huge dose of reality there. I thought it was pretty cool when they showed one of the treatment rooms being set up for the girls arrival, the equipment like the respirator being brought in..I remember during the rescue, all the girl's friends standing around her in disbelief that she OD'd on barbituates..All the episodes involving drugs and alcohol are pretty real. Also I havee always loved the humorous side of Emergency!especially all the incidents involving Johnny who seems to be the butt of practical jokes as well as always involved in one crazy scheme after another!
