Any other Off the Map fans?

I know it's not doing soo well in the ratings (compared to others) but I really like it! I like the characters but the story lines are really good. I know, I know, it's another medical drama, but the "jungle" themed accidents are much more interesting to me. :)

I caught part of this a while ago and it seemed pretty good, but not sure I'd make plans to watch it, so that may be its downfall. In some ways, though, it kind of reminded me of MASH with them trying to perform medicine in a location that may not be completely ideal.

It is sort of like MASH, except for the fact that they have no where near the supplies that MASH had! LOL

They utilize the jungle at times, which is pretty neat and what I like rather than the standard operating rooms. For example, in one episode they didn't have staples so they used these special ants to keep the wound together in order for the guy to be transferred. :)

sounds cool ... has the blond actress on this show appeared in other things? When I saw it, she seemed familiar, but I couldn't place her.

I like it but don't think it will make it.
I really had the story line about girl having heart problems....it seems to me that his wife will die and then give her the hear...but then she has to leave the show due to being in jungle!

I really hate when they put all the main people in bed together...yuck!

I thought the samet thing, and it turns out that she's Meryl Streep's daughter. That made perfect sense!

From the first time I saw her I thought "Wow, there's someone who is a HUGE Meryl Streep fan" but never thought to see if they were related.

I think the police raid is a quick fix to continue the message "Drugs are Bad".

Or corrupted. ;)

It would be a nice in and out way though. They first met when he was shot during the first raid. Then shot again at the end.
