Typical 70s Telefilm about crusading doctor
29 September 2002 | by budikavlanSee all my reviews

Good showcase for the grievously underappreciated Dorian Harewood as a young doctor fighting entrenched power to uncover and defeat an epidemic in a poor neighborhood. You can guess how most of this goes: the young, handsome doctor is loved by those around him, he realizes there's an epidemic, he has to go around making increasingly impassioned speeches to bureaucrats and older superiors who discount his theories, etc. And don't forget the happy ending with everyone smiling at each other. It's a lot like many episodes of "Quincy" (except for the handsome part) and many other movies from the Seventies, but this one is pretty well done. It beats fishing shows, infomercials, and hicks turning left (aka NASCAR) for Sunday afternoon viewing, at any rate.
