Hopkins Review, Variety

Produced by ABC News. Executive producer, Terence Wrong; senior executive producer, Rudy Bednar; supervising producers, Brad Hebert, Alex Piper.


Fraught with emotion, humor and the periodic grisly glimpse of what a body looks like pried open, "Hopkins" marks another six-week cinema verite stay at Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Hospital in the capable hands of producer Terence Wrong, who previously gave us ABC's "Hopkins 24/7." Uncompromising, raw and assembled as a narrative with a surgeon's touch, it's a more-than-appropriate occupant of the hour where "ER" makes its rounds, and represents an increasingly rare use of news-division resources in a manner that soberly blends filmmaking skill with dramatic flair.

I love this show. have worked in the medical feild for 25 years and have never experienced the drama and emotion that this show captures. It is not all sugar coated. It is well done and in my humble opinion the best show on TV, not withstanding the fact that it is only 6 episodes. I always feel tremendous emotion after each episode. WOW!!!!!!!!

Wonderful show, touches my heart both happy and sad. As we watch as a family we realize and understand that miracles happen every day and how blessed we all are. We have these brilliant men and women who have chosen this field. Thank God!
God Speed.
