    For all you guys who love Doc Robbins, I thought you might want to check out Dr. G: Medical Examiner on Discovery Health Channel. I think it is cool how you get to follow all the real cases a medical examiner works on. I like seeing how their investigations really work since sometimes you don’t see all of the medical examiner’s work in CSI.

    I've heard about this but haven't seen it around. What sort of day/time is it on?
    (Don't know where you are, but i'm in the UK, so it might be different times and such).

    I've seen a few episodes on Discovery Channel and it's a very informative show. Fun to watch but I don't like it that they blur out the 'gory' details. In shows like this I would like to know and see all the details.

    These days her show airs at 1:55 AM so I don't get to see it anymore. :rolleyes:

    I think that show, or a show similar to it may be coming to Australia on one of the Discovery type Foxtel channels, for those who live here and are interested.

    I'm happy they're finally showing new episodes.

    I just wish they'd give me some new Skeleton Stories, which is the forensic anthropology show.

    I love Dr G: Medical Examiner! She's one of my role models and the show is pretty interesting. But most of the details during an autopsy are blurred out. Still, I'd definitely recommend the show to anyone who's interested in real life forensic pathology.

    Yup, it is Dr. G that's coming to Australia. Saw the commercial again yesterday. I'm looking forward to watching it, should be a blast.

    Dr. G would be my medical examiner, if I was killed. I live in her district. :lol:
