Your Happy Medic has a nerdy side. Gee what Paramedic doesn’t, right?
One of my particular joys after a long day in the 6×8 foot office is watching an episode of Firefly.
Firefly was a short lived sci-fi TV series written by Joss Whedon of Buffy the Vampire fame. No vampires in this series, but plenty of great characters and dialogue. The show took on a cult following, mainly appealing to two unique groups – space buffs and western buffs. And, like many great programs before it, was canceled prematurely.
A particular episode stands out as appropriate for this crowd as it has a neat look into the future of pre-hospital care. At least as envisioned by sci-fi writers.
The video at hulu.com is the whole episode, with only minor breaks and has a great explanation of the series to that point. It’s great alone, or with watching the preceding episodes first.
If another person ever tried to get you to watch a fun sci-fi show a few years back, this was it.
Find a few minutes and give it a try. The ambulance and interaction between medics and hospital staff is worth it.
