Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Gritty, filled with gallows, or rather hospital humor, and daily life-and-death struggles, St. Elsewhere was an innovative television series that attempted to present a more realistic view of life in a public hospital. The doctors at Boston's St. Eligius (St. Elsewhere is its nickname) weren't always heroes and miracles were seldom, if ever, seen as the staff worked with its poor, downtrodden patients, patients rejected by Beantown's tonier hospitals.
