Thoughts about "Nightingales"
8 February 2009 | by kgbernhardtSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this show when it was on. I too was surprised that NBC canceled because of "sexual nature". I always enjoyed Suzanne Pleshette and was saddened to hear she passed away, last year.

I really hope that DVDs will be issued, because I would get them. University Hospital was a syndicated show, and it seemed to have some similarities to "Nightingales". I believe it ran in the mid 1990s.

I wonder two things :

Would Nightingales have fared better on maybe HBO or Showtime ?

Should it have been put on a few years later (i.e. Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place), like that genre ?
