Dr House, Greys Anatomy, Good Doctor and New Amsterdam

This Blog Post was originally published on the platform "writelier" (formerly "co-writers" and "200wordsaday"). Sadly the blogging platform was discontinued. I downloaded all my blog posts and prepared them to be republish them here.

In the last few years, I have been watching several medical tv shows. Everything started with Doctor House. Interestingly Doctor House made me think about a paramedic career and thus civilian service instead of the shorter military service.

Besides Doctor House, I started to watch Grey's Anatomy and recently The Good Doctor and New Amsterdam.

I also got Emergency Room somewhere on my watchlist, but I think it will take a while until I land there.

Interestingly all of the mentioned have a little bit of sub-genre to them. Grey's Anatomy focuses on heavy drama. I think Game of Thrones is the only series where more people die.

The Good Doctor, in contrast, has less drama and a really great focus on the main character and medical cases. Especially the operating room scenes feel more realistic than those of Grey's.

New Amsterdam on the other side has a good part of the drama, but in contrast to the other two, it also focuses heavily on the whole hospital and not only on the surgery part of it.

Doctor House on the other side put the patients and diseases in the focus.

So for now, I will have to stick to all of them, until one will finally come out as my favourite.
