Zach and Nas tackle the first two episodes of one of TV’s most renowned shows! This intense hospital drama series had it all: terrorists, romance, and STDs. As a remarkable slice of 1980s workplace culture, we dissect how the show portrays the long hours, medical maladies, and bizarre casual racism exhibited by Mr. Feeny (William Daniels.) In what was one of the first types of shows of its time, Zach discusses the legacy of St. Elsewhere as found in more modern dramas.

Small spoiler alert: This show does not pass the Bechdel test.
