I used to really love watching Chicago Hope when it originally aired. This is their Christmas episode from December 11, 1995.
As Christmas approaches...Nyland and Hancock aid a wounded man trapped in a neighborhood under siege by gang members.
The show starred Mandy Patinkin as Dr. Jeffrey Geiger, a hot-shot surgeon with emotional issues stemming from the psychiatric condition of his wife (played by Kim Greist), who drowned their infant son. Adam Arkin plays Patinkin's colleague and best friend. Peter MacNicol and Hector Elizondo feature as the hospital's in-house attorney and director of medicine, respectively. Christine Lahti joined in the second season as a talented cardiac surgeon with a feminist chip on her shoulder, vying with Geiger for the chief of surgery position.
The show has never been released on DVD, but you can order an excellent soundtrack at Amazon.Com by clicking on the link below. You can't beat it for less than 2 bucks.
