We're back! Johnny and Dr. Jackson are joined by Dr. Courtney Nicholas and Dr. Greg Winter to discuss the 2009's "Crank 2." Jason Statham's heart has been removed and he needs to be zapped with electricity every four minutes or else he'll die. It makes complete sense if you've seen Crank 1 - but is it medically accurate?…
 
Johnny is drinking from the keg of glory - finally, a West Wing episode! We're discussing the two part season two premiere, "In the Shadow of Two Gunmen." The episode gains points for the way it handles a high-stakes trauma situation, but loses points thanks to Dr. Abbie Bartlet, whose medical resume would be literally impossible to obtain IRL.…
 
Johnny and Dr. Jackson are joined by Dr. Scott Herskovitz to discuss our very first episode of "Chicago Med," season five's "Got a Friend in Me."

This week we're joined by our resident "The Resident" expert, Dr. Courtney Nicholas, to discuss S03E10 of Fox's medical drama.

In this episode we talk a bit about issues like t…
 
We're following up "No Holds Barred" with an 80's brawler classic that's actually, you know, good. Unlike Frank Dux, the title of Jean-Claude Van Damme's "Bloodsport" isn't full of lies - this film actually has enough blood! But how medically accurate can a movie based on a "true story" about a made-up street fighting tournament actually be?…

Recorded live in isolation, it's our first shelter-in-place episode! This week, Johnny and Dr. Jackson discuss "Scrubs" S05E12 and S05E13, "My Cabbage" and "My Five Stages." Jackson picked these episodes because they make it very clear WHY we're all hanging out at home right now. Hint: it's not because we keep confusing candy for suppositories.…
 
How medically accurate could South Park's take on fecal transplants be? Actually, Turd Burglars is one of the most accurate pieces we've covered!

So it's come to this - we're covering a medical show. Johnny and Dr. Jackson Vane sat down to watch the pilot episode of "The Resident," and... it's bad, folks. It's very, very bad.

This week we're talking about an episode of TV that's gotten a lot of flack from the medical community. On S07E02 of The Blacklist, there's a chest tube insertion that's depicted rather poorly. Jackson and Johnny thought that'd be the only thing we'd have to talk about from this episode. We were very, very wrong. Watch the scene in question at http…
 
Jackson and Johnny discuss the medical accuracy of Hobbs and Shaw, the latest entry into the Fast and Furious Cinematic Universe.

It's our most topical show yet! We're discussing American Horror Story: 1984's "Episode 100," which first aired October 23, 2019. How medically accurate is the execution?

Jackson and Johnny discuss the medical moments in the 2004 stoner classic Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.

People put all sorts of things on burns. Butter... mayonnaise... mustard. This week we discuss the medical accuracy of "The Injury," S02E12 of The Office - and for once, we're talking mostly about what a show gets right!
