  • This is one from the good old days!

    I recall this tv series from many years ago. My favourite character was Sam (Samantha). Would they ever consider showing a rerun of this series on tv again?

    Would bring back so many memories...



    I was born in 1983 so I was only 6 when it showed but I remember it somewhat but would love to see it on tv again sometime.



    I am certain there would be other people also interested in seeing this again. Perhaps a tribute to Aaron Spelling of some sort can be arranged as he is quite good.



    I think they should consider showing it again sometime. Thanks.moreless
  • Student nurses in L.A. who live life like a Soap Opera.

    Absolutely loved this show. Aaron Spelling was a genius and really knew how to put out the good stuff. I loved tuning in every week to see what would happen next. Unfortunately, it was cancelled four months after it premiered because nurses all over the country threw a fit because the felt it made them look bad. Apparently, they never learned the difference between fiction and reality. Suzanne Pleschette brilliantly played Christine Broderick who was the director of nursing and house mother to five nurses and Fran Bennett was tough head nurse Lenore Ritt.moreless
  • They weren't real nurses!

    This was another guilty pleasure from Aaron Spelling about student nurses. It was a prime time soap and not meant to be taken seriously, but nurses groups had a fit over this show. They felt the nurses on the show were trampy and gave nurses a bad name. Of course they were trampy, it was an Aaron Spelling soap! It was Melrose Place in a hospital and believe me, no one watching it thought nurses really behaved this way. It was strictly popcorn viewing which is what Aaron Spelling shows are meant for. Mediocre acting, goofy dialogue...what more could you ask for!moreless
