A `Strong' TV Show!

"I have seen a lot of the episodes of `Strong Medicine' on Lifetime, and I feel that it is one of the most underrated TV shows being show today. It is a great show that portrays hope, life, relationships, and emotions in each episode. I am glad that this show is finally releasing on DVD, as we can get to watch the series from the beginning.
The story mainly revolves around Dr. Lu Delgado and Dr. Dana Stowe, two women who have nothing in common with each other, except for their passions in the field of work. They work in the Rittenhouse Women's Health Clinic, where they face new challenges, and solve new problems from performing plastic surgery to treating HIV positive patients. This DVD set contains the first 22 episodes of Season 1, which are:
02. Preexisting Conditions
04. Second Look
05. Performance Anxiety
06. Drug Interactions
07. Do No Harm
08. Miracle Cure
13. Second Opinion
14. Side Effects
15. Blessed Events
20. Drugstore Cowgirl
21. Wednesday Night Fever
Not only is this show moving, but you also learn something in each episode. Developed by Whoopi Goldberg and created by Tammy Ader, `Strong Medicine' has won numerous awards. Rosa Blasi (who plays Dr. Lu Delgado) won an Imagen Award for Best Actress in a Drama series. I doubt this DVD set will contain any special features, except for the standard ones like languages, and subtitles, but nevertheless, it is worth buying this DVD just to see the episodes.
Being sweet and sour at times, `Strong Medicine' is a wonderful drama that will definitely make you feel better.

"When Strong Medicine first came out, I indicated to to my girl-friend that she might like it. Strong Medicine quickly became her favorite series. While I normally avoid spending time in front of the television, I made a point of sitting with my future wife on Sunday evenings to end the week with a provocative episode of Srong Medicine. We always seemed to have an inteligent and lively discussion on the issues presented. When the first year of episodes came out, I was pleased to order a copy for Valentine's day. My wife was thrilled and we both are looking forward to the release of the second season."

"I absoultely love this show! i bought the first season almost a year ago and have been waiting ever since to buy the second season. I have not been able to find any information on it and was wondering if they were going to release a second season at all. the lifetime movie network states that this has been a very popular show with many viewers. so i don't understand why such the long wait to release the 2nd season. the 1st episode of the second season blew me away when i watched it on tv. can any body tell me anything about any more releases of this show? I think that the fans have waited long enough!!!!!"
It's about time, a show of this quality was placed on DVD

"It's no surprise that Stong Medicine, has lasted so long on Lifetime, from episode one it was evident that this show was not just another medical show. Strong Medicine has strength and courage of the female kind. It's not very often we see a show so full of passion, conviction, and focus to educate women as well as men of the importance of womens health, physically and emotionally. Rosa Blasi character of "Dr Luisa Delgado", is so moving. It's performances like Rosa Blasi, Jenifer Lewis, and Joshua Cox that keep me on the edge of my seat. I love the show and I can't wait for the rest of the seasons to be available on DVD.....It's great and I can't wait."
