Childrens Hospital, Season 1HDClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Actor/comedian Rob Corddry (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) has created and stars in Childrens' Hospital, an irreverent satirical comedy that lampoons the medical show genre. Beautiful doctors with tragic flaws struggle with charged emotional and sexual politics in the workplace . . . which just happens to be a hospital for young kids in life-threatening situations. More often than not, the wildly inappropriate behavior of the oversexed medical staff is witnessed by terminally ill pre-teens. No medical condition is too severe to distract these oblivious doctors from their primal need to flirt, gossip, make out, talk about sex, show their underwear, and more, all in front of horrified children and their anxious parents. The series also stars Lake Bell, Ken Marino, Erinn Hayes, Rob Huebel, Jason Sudeikis, David Wain, Nathan Corddry, Ed Helms, Nick Kroll and two-time Emmy winner Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) as The Chief.

Shamelessly raising the star count
Give it, like the children, a chance!
Oh, all your whining about the children! From what I see the kids are merely the backdrop of this show. It's for adults. Does everything today have to be sensative and kid friendly? It's not making fun of the kids. It's clearly making fun of the Doctors. Lighten up. Some of us who have been in, or have relatives who have been in such places could use a laugh. Put the kids to bed & watch Children's Hospital. It's funny.
Love or Hate?
Whenever I see reviews divided between * and *****, I figure whatever is being torn up is worth a look. In an age of sanitized mediocrity, usually only shows with satirical or heavily ironic content draw such polarized critique. Sad to say, some people don't get irony, especially when it comes in an "inappropriate" form. I think the producers of this show are making a statement about the portrayal of doctors on TV as spoiled juveniles whose hair occupies as much time out of their day as the latest medical journal article about that rare tropical disease their patient is spreading around the hospital. I personally find the lot of medical dramas, comedies, "dramedies" and "soap operas" (hand sanitizer operas?), of this very sort rather dreary and redundant. All the more reason to take a look at how others have chosen to express their disgust towards that very redundancy and absurdity (I got that out without choking on it. Good. I wouldn't want to interrupt somebody's foreplay by needing a doctor). If you find the idea of "Children's Hospital" disgusting, fine. But don't give it a "*" until you have at least looked at it. You never know. It might actually make some sense. At least look up "irony" in the dictionary. The title of the show might take on a new level of meaning for you. :-)
