    It was good in the beginning, but once a major character was abruptly killed off (won’t spoil it for you), it lost “something.”

    First 1 and 1/2 seasons are great - after that....

    My dad watched it, and he usually never watched tv series.

    I recall the women in my family talking highly of it, and I remember when the box set came out a few years back, but I've never seen it personally.

    My Mom and I both enjoyed it. It could be uneven at times but when it was good it was very, very good.

    It was based on the memoir of a U.S. Army nurse.

    This is one of those shows I've heard good things about, but for some reason I could never get past watching the pilot without my mind scattering.
