1 :01x01 - Point of Maximum Pressure

The first show starts out with a group of young interns getting some of the finer points of what's in store for them from Dr. Goodwin (Peppard). A young idealistic intern (Christian Raines), challenged a highly-reputed veteran of the operating room, Dr. Wilson, when he loses a patient through ineptness. The story seems to stick to the formula as Wilson's report is accepted in the hospital's Morbidity-Mortality Conference and the intern's residency is cancelled.
However, the chief of neurosurgery and star of the show (George Peppard as Dr. Jake Goodwin) persists in his investigations of the incident.
A sub-plot about a child who has mysteriously suffered an apparent stroke turns out to be a warning for parents rather than simply an overblown device to gain our sympathy and to give an intern self-confidence..

5 :01x05 - The Loneliest Night

An improvement over previous episodes, perhaps because both the doctors and their cases seem more believable than they have so far.

How he finally demands that she face up to her slavish self-pity makes the hour a toughtful affair. An overweight and unpopular coed falls in love with Dr. Goodwin, the only person who seems to care about her.

doomed movie mogul, becomes cold and withdrawn until Cliff DeYoung, playing an attentive and caring hospital orderly, snaps him into a real emotional response. There's also an interesting, if too hastily thrown in, subplot about a nurse on the verge of hysteria.
