I watched this show as a child and loved it then, as I still do now. My own child, who is 6, loves to watch it today as well. WE are lucky that Retro Network is currently carrying Marcus Welby in reruns. We simply record it on the DVR and watch it together on the weekends or before bed.I do not have to worry about violence, or sex, or drugs or bad language. I am very protective over what my child watches on TV for the most part. I also believe in discussing social issues and what is going on in the world, even today the show still opens up opportunities for discussion. People have got to remember a great TV show doesnt need to cost a million dollars an episode, it doesnt need flashy computer graphics, sex, drugs, rock and roll,car chases or lots of flash. A truely great TV show or movie is about the story line and the characters. I compare the old tv shows to something more along the lines of going to the theatre and watching the characters develop with very little in the way of special effects or flash. I hope that a new generation will fall in love with Dr. Welby, Dr. Kiley and Conswelo. I am blessed to have a family doctor that is much like Dr. Welby, although he stopped making house calls when i was in high school. He is a general practioner that has delivered babies, set simple fractures and will still actually treat a patient instead of shipping them off to specialist.. it is an awesome show, take the time to watch it if you get a chance.
I remember this show from when i was a little girl and watched it in reruns when I got older. every once in a blue moon over the last few years i have caught an episode and I always enjoy it. What people have to remember, back then tv was more like stage today. It was about the characters and the story lines not all the special effects and stuff. The show often dealt with ground breaking problems, issues, social problems and life issues. It was a different world and it has to be watched with the idea that the world was not the information super highway. TV went off the air at midnight or so.. there were a very limited number of channels, no internet, no news on all day and all night.. people it was a different world. If you watch it in the context it was done, it is a really good show, g in rating and good family fun
I remember watching Marcus Welby MD when I was a kid. I remember never missing an episode. It was great.It was cutting edge in its day. I remember the show plots being exciting and influential and informative. It showed things that were in that time not shown on tv. In todays world it would seem silly because they show so much more on TV now but back in the day it was considered revealing and top notch
