Kommentar: Episode: 35 (24.11.70) ""Marcus Welby M.D."" ist eine amerikanische Arztserie, die ABC von September 23, 1969, bis Juli 29, 1976, ausstrahlte. The pilot had aired as an ABC Movie of the Week on March 26, 1969 ""John Considine is quite good as a harried teacher-turned-insurance salesman who must endure not only the debilitating effects of epilepsy, but also the social stigma attached to his frequent seizures (his initial seizure scene is quite shocking by 1970 TV standards)."" http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/44377/marcus-welby-md-season-two/ The launching pad for the long-running ABC medical series Marcus Welby, M.D. was this feature-length pilot film, first aired March 26, 1969. Robert Young of course stars as Dr. Welby, a crusty but golden-hearted general practitioner forced by a mild coronary to take on a partner. At first, Welby and his new assistant, long-haired, doggedly independent motorcycle fancier Dr. Steven Kiley (James Brolin), are about as compatible as oil and water, but the two quickly become friends and confidants during an unexpected medical crisis. Originally, Anne Baxter as Welby's erstwhile lady friend, Myra Sherwood, and Sheila Larkin as the doctor's daughter, Sandy, were supposed to have been regulars, along with Penny Santon as Welby and Kiley's no-nonsense nurse/secretary Consuelo. But by the time the project graduated to series status, only Consuelo remained, played by Elena Verdugo. In syndication, Marcus Welby, M.D. was retitled A Matter of Humanities. ""Its handling of many varied medical cases – some common, some uncommon – made it an instant hit for ABC. Story lines included impotence, depression, brain damage, breast cancer, mononucleosis, sexually transmitted diseases, epilepsy, leukemia, dysautonomia, rape, and addiction to painkillers, among others. At its second season (1970–1971), it ranked #1 in the Nielsen ratings, becoming the first ABC show to top the list. The same year, both Young and Brolin won Emmy Awards for their work, as did the show for Outstanding Dramatic Series. Young won a Golden Globe in 1972 for his performance."" Wikipedia
