    I've dropped this series as medical dramas have become boring to me.

    This seems like it's becoming a problem with some dramas. Mike Frezon was saying the same thing in the "This is Us" thread about the kid characters on that show.

    I've been 1/2 watching [what I call laundry-folding observation], but the 'genius idea' exchange regarding the 3-D titanium femur was the kind of dialog I like to see in ostensibly 'cutting edge' medical dramas. Nice writing renewing my faith in creator Shore.

    I dropped "Greys Anatomy" several years ago, been going on way to long, but I'm enjoying this so far, kind of quirky but not bad. Looking forward to when "Chicago Med" returns. Sometimes they run to long, but new ones kick in and they're decent.

    Well, ignore my previous comment. Now #2 on my cancel list this season. Just to strange so I'm done. Find the kid way to annoying. Chicago Med is back, much more enjoyable.

    As with so many shows nowadays, the producers set up a set of fall finale cliffhangers that just feel so phony and contrived, and I'm SO tired of this cliché.

    The show continues to find ways to keep me interested, but I don't need them to constantly end things on a cliffhanger.

    (On a tangent).

    When I was younger, I was able to watch through medical drama type shows such as the earlier seasons of St Elsewhere.

    As I got older, I found medical shows harder to watch for some reason. For example, I found it somewhat difficult to watch 90s era medical type shows like Diagnosis Murder, ER, etc ... Though I was fine with watching shows that featured some medical type stuff which wasn't a main emphasis of the show, such as the original Law & Order (and later CSI).

    By the time it was the 2000s, the few medical drama type shows I was able to watch were shows like Greys Anatomy and House MD. Though for these two shows, what kept my attention was largely unrelated to the medical type stuff. In the case of House MD, it was watching the sarcasm and cynicism of Gregory House's curmudgeon antics. For Greys Anatomy, what kept my attention was the character development and other quasi-soap opera aspects.
