Do people enjoy serials based on their own profession?

Do you think doctors enjoy Scrubs or Greys anantomy, or lawers enjoy The Practice? Wouldn't they find technical flaws in the story or the techniques shown in the serial, or will they enjoy it more because they would understand the technical terms used more than the lay people.

hrm yeah,i think what you do everyday may affect on your favourite tv shows.i might not be a doctor but i am studying in the field of biotechnology and somehow watching Scrubs, Grey's Anatomy, CSI, Bones and other medical-related shows is more interesting then watching The Practice.oh but I do enjoy Judging Amy!

Do you think the doctors watching scrubs etc. might also relate with some of the characters in these shows and wish they were that person in real life?

A nursing student ! why ? because she has not yet stepped in to the real World of Medicine ? Or these shows lighten the tension she has to face every day?

I have always wondered if Doctors would like Shows like Greys Anatomy, ER, etc. I am sure there are some that watch these type of shows, and then go, NO, that's not how it's done, while there are others that sit there and laugh and enjoy these shows wishing it could be like that for them. But I have never asked a Doctor if they watch these type to see. But I can imagine quite a few of them doing so when they get home just to rewind.

Wouldn't you think they would prefer something different to rewind than seeing the hospital they have just left on the TV.

I think they may watch these shows with a sense of humor~I can't imagine a real Dr. Cox or a Denny Crane running around, that would be too interesting!!!!

yes these figures are quite different from what you would expect in real life but underneath the humor and funny dialogs there are very serious emotions you can relate to.

I work as a Legal Assistant and I love courtroom shows... probably because I never actually see the inside of the courtroom. But I do believe that people enjoy watching shows based on their own professions to a certain degree. My wife is a nursing student and she loves medical shows; but she hates some of them, too. I think there is some appeal there, but I am usually pretty interested in legal cases.

i think that they DO analyze those shows. but they also relate to how those ppl miss their family, or can't be with their family...like on law & order
