    First Episode Review
    I wasn't too sure about this show, but I decided to give it a try. The first episode was full of tension. You meet Asuka who tries to live up to her father's expectations and keep the clinic, but she needs a doctor, and when all hope looks lost in comes Dr. Jumbo, but the answer to her prayer is quite different than she expected. I won't give anything away in regard to Dr. Jumbo. I will say that ...

  • Japanese House, M.D.
    This is basically a Japanese version of the series House, M.D.
    He even has the same catch phrase" everybody lies". Having said that from the episodes I have watch (1-4) it is pretty good on its own and probably in the future.

    Smart doctor, Dumb nurse
    In some ways this reminds me of House, but in a small town or rural setting. The doctor (of course) can figure things out that everyone else misses. The nurse on the other hand cannot seem to figure anything out because she only looks at the surface and is too influenced by what "authority figures" (ie, other doctors in the main hospital) have said. After 5 episodes she still does not seem to get ...

  • Japanese drama rocks!
    Yay, finally some J-drama. Its not bad too! Around the 3rd episode you end up loving the characters! I admit the acting was pretty forced during the first episode, but they seem to be clicking a bit more as the season progresses.

    Doctor Jumbo is worth watching!
    This is the best show to watch on a slow saturday. I give it five stars, I hope to see more shows that make you think and see all side of the a human being driven by what is right and determine to help even if its not wanted at first. In all this is a good show.

    Great Japanese Medical Drama
    All the characters have that extra bit of exaggeration to their personalities that makes them specifically unique. A thoughtful, logical, straight talking doctor vs a twisted, deceptive "evil" doctor joined by a handful of other characters including a naive new nurse that has to fall on her face several times on her way to becoming respectable.

  • One of the TOP Reasons I Love J-Dramas
    This drama reminded me of how much I enjoyed medical dramas. Focused on an inexperienced nurse and her childhood crush who returns to run her father's medical practice....this DOES NOT turn into a romantic drama but stays true to life and focuses on the big issues of life, death and real love. Men and women alike will enjoy this one.

  • A Better House M. D.
    I loved this drama Jumboe & Aska lovely young actress. Very clever Dr. and naive young nurse fit well together. I hope there's a continuation, where the 2 get involved Jumbo and the young nurse that would be so sweet.
