'Medical Center' Season 1 on DVD

August 15, 2011

Premiering in fall 1969 (the same year as ABC's hit drama "Marcus Welby, M.D."), CBS' "Medical Center" revolved around handsome young surgeon Dr. Joe Gannon (Chad Everett) — who managed to look great even in scrubs — and his chief of staff, Paul Lochner (James Daly, father of Tyne and Tim), who work at a university hospital in Los Angeles. From the first season through its last in 1975-76, the series dealt with such hot topics as abortion, child abuse and drugs. The first season, just released on DVD, features guest stars including Cicely Tyson, Ed Asner, William Shatner, Dyan Cannon and O.J. Simpson.
