Medical Shows

| | Comments (4)

Is it just me or has there been a marked increase in medical shows in the past few years? I, personally am fascinated by them. My favourite show for a long time was ER, but shows like Nip/Tuck, House, RPA, Amazing Medical Stories etc grip me. But they also scare me. Well sorta. Nip/Tuck was enough to turn me off plastic surgery (which I'd never been interested in anyway, but the procedures are positively *brutal*). In fact all surgery looks brutal. The idea if people cutting into me and poking at me and drilling holes and using screwdrivers, for heavens sake, is rather repulsive. And then there's the cancer stories and stories of what could happen when things just go *wrong* with bodies. And I'm not afraid for myself. I'm afraid of what might happen if a loved one (specifically Stu at this point) had a terminal disease or a life-threatening injury. The thought is terrifying. Have I ever mentioned I'm rather fond of Stu? Sorry, have had one too many beers I think :)

I like House! I guess it's the same kind of thing as the increase in the number of 'reality' tv shows over the past few years.

"Have I ever mentioned I'm rather fond of Stu?" is a very Stu-like remark in itself. He's *having an influence*! :-D
