"The Resident"

I'm bingeing this on Hulu and absolutely loving it. I'm right near what I hope is, but I bet is not, the end of the part about medical device fraud, which I find rather fascinating as I used to work in cardiology and alongside electrocardiologists and surgeons who put in artificial valves and stuff. I know a good bit about some of the other things (artificial hip joints, neuro-stimulators, etc.) either because friends have gotten them or because I've done a lot of reading. It's fascinating stuff, and I do know there's been fraud in the business. This whole part of the series is amazing. The series has also not hesitated to take on the American healthcare system, insurance, and some other hot button issues. I don't know why I didn't discover it before except that I don't watch network TV at all.

2. I've watched the first couple years and yes it fascinating.

I have many episodes still TIVO'd but not yet watched. I had gotten out of the habit of watching because of events and also the fact that it was on a local Fox channel and I don't watch Fox hardly at all, but you are right that in some ways it took on the money side of medicine more than the other medical dramas. It also takes on the showboat surgeons and how the hospital is OK with their misdemeanors as long as they bring in the big bucks in the way of conveyor belt surgery. (Kind of like the scandal in past years when local hospital rose fast to prominence with a team of cardiac surgeons doing unnecessary procedures).
