So, I admit I'm addicted to the OLD show Emergency! :punk: What are some other good EMS shows or movies?

I don't really think there are any, they are all over-dramatised slop 

 

I don't like Emergency! even tho I watched a few episodes, MJ&S was quite funny independent of any medical theme, I watched the pilots of both Trauma and Chicago Fire and they are awful.

 

Third Watch was OK, there was not a great deal of complex medical information in that show and again, it was good because the story line was good, independent of any medical theme.

"M*A*S*H", in Germany they aired it without the canned laughter, which was a good decision.

I liked "Emergency!". A similar german show was "Notarztwagen 7" from the 1970ies, I really appreciate the old style settings (they even have an english wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia..../Notarztwagen_7, for the opening titles see youtube link at the end). Later german EMS shows from the 2000s were awful, couldn't watch more than one episode each.

"Third watch" was OK in the first one or two seasons, then it turned stupid. Same for "ER".

As a kid, "Firehouse" influenced our playing a lot. :)
