The Complete Second Season

What gay man in the 1970s didn’t lust after young Dr. Joe Gannon (Chad Everett)? While lesbians may not have lusted after him, they were nonetheless enthralled with Everett’s pre-Justin Bieber, lesbianish haircut. We include this release in OutSmart to note Medical Center’s sensitive portrayal of a top medical researcher (Paul Burke) who is gay; episodes like it and others focusing on mental illness, syphilis, and more indicate how wildly ahead of its Vietnam-era time this medical drama was.
