Binge-Watch the Best Medical Dramas on TV

A couple binge-watching medical dramas on TV.

Do you enjoy fast-paced action and dramatic storylines? If so, here are three medical dramas on TV worthy of binge-watching:

The Good Doctor 

The Good Doctor is a newer drama that follows Shaun Murphy, a young autistic surgeon with savant syndrome. He leaves his quiet country life behind to become a doctor at a prestigious hospital’s surgical unit. But it’s not without controversy. Struggling to connect, Shaun uses his incredible medical gifts to heal patients and challenge the skepticism of his colleagues. Actor Freddie Highmore was a Golden Globe nominee in 2018 for “Best Actor – Television Series Drama.” 

Code Black 

Set in the busiest emergency room in the United States, Code Black is a heart-pumping drama that leaves viewers on the edge of their seats. The staggering number of patients outweighs the hospital’s limited resources. This creates Code Black. At the center of the department is Dr. Leanne Rorish. She’ll stop at nothing to save lives in an often impossible setting.  The residents call her “Daddy,” and outside of the ER, she’s busy adopting a teenage girl. The show also focuses on a field medicine physician and an ER nurse known as “Mama.”


Both comedy and a drama, Scrubs takes place at Sacred Heart Hospital where fresh out-of-med-school best friends land jobs. They’re mentored by an arrogant, yet brilliant attending physician, and realize just how much they have to learn. The show’s guests stars range from Brendan Fraser to Dick Van Dyke, and the 182 episodes will leave you entertained from beginning to end. Scrubs was nominated for dozens of awards, including “Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy” and “Outstanding Sound Mixing – Comedy or Drama.”

All in all, these medical dramas on TV offer plenty of entertainment for everyone.
