A night in the suite at the top of Cinderella Castle? No thanks. A day of pampering in the luxury spa at Universal Orlando's Portofino Bay resort? Maybe next year.

Yes Exactly! I want to see the autopsies! It's a show on a medical examiner I want to see the exam! I really am interested in becoming some sort of doctor. Medical examiner or cardiologist are my major interests so if they showed the exam, people who are in to the med professions would get a whole lot more out of the show.If the liver has Cirrhosis I would like to see it rather then hear her talk about it. I think that I personally would get learn more and get more out of the show. I wish people wouldn't think that it's to gory because it is a job out there. And if they want us to see what Dr. G. does then why can't we really see. I understand if they lose viewers but if people are watching it wouldn't they want to see. I mean why would people watch it unless they were interested in the autopsies. Just like Attorney an Doctor G Fan said,"That makes no sense to me! If you want to watch a show about autopsies, why wouldn't you want to see the procedures? Oh well, I still enjoy the show." I totally get what you're saying. It makes no sense to me either!!
Did it ever occur to you that the families of the "patient" doesn't want their loved one sliced and diced on national tv? You have also read that they have found their viewership would suffer with "real" autopsies. If you want to see one, go to the local morgue. The reason they show it on CSI or NCIS is because it's not real.

They wouldn't have to show the face or the actual exam. But the organs. Hello what is really so awful about showing like a liver or a heart! I mean it's not that gross, it's inside us so why would people freak out, its a show on a medical examiner doing exams. I understand that people don't want to show their loved ones face or body. But would it matter to show the liver? they show pictures they talk to the family so what would it really hurt! CSI and NCIS are stupid, fake I thought that it was really cool that they brought out a show that was real. But how are we really supposed to believe that if they show us absolutely nothing?

That's why they would have to get permission, as documentaries that have shown autopsies have done. It can be done, money talks. I believe that this show already gets the permission of the family in order to use the names of the deceased.

It is difficult to see an autopsy that has any (excuse the pun) "guts" to it. When I was in law school I took a class on Forensic Evidence and we were able to see the autopsy of a homeless man who died of natural causes. The Medical Examiner personally chose his case over the guy with seven bullet holes in him or the old lady who died of massive internal injuries from a car accident. Since those cases involved court cases, the ME didn't want to have to explain during depositions that 30 or so non-employees were present and may have distracted him from giving anything but his full attention to the autopsies.

I love Dr. G. I am addicted to the show. I have never seen anything but respect and compassion for all of her 'patients.' She is brilliant and she has a way of explaining very difficult concepts so that they are very easy for anyone to understand.

I have always thought that she would make an excellent college professor- not that she would leave her current position to do that.

I wonder how much Discovery Channel pays her. She is very popular and I hope they pay her well. Anyone have any clues as to what her contract is worth with them?

She was on a local radio morning show a couple of weeks ago, explained why she went into what she did, very personable on the air, sounded just like she does on her show. I hope the only time I meet her is maybe passing her at Publix.......She came into a big mess at the Orange County Medical Examiners office a few years back. It seems she's really turned things around there.

Due to Dr G's Knowledge a great service is done to society ...and to be able to bring it to the public and share her knowledge and experience for anyone who chooses to watch and learn from it.Anyone complaining about it dont watch it ,the families choose to have their loved ones shown etc and it brings disclosure to a lot of people and knowledge also to the medical field .It is a great show.

I also enjoy the show but when It comes to showing the organs they blur it out, show me a real Autopsy.

Who really cares about Ashley Spears anyway? I didn't care when she got her nose job. Besides that, who would screw her anyway with that beak? And after those nude pics on the net, and all those trips to rehab, why did they LET her perform on SNL?? AND, why didn't she have to serve her full sentence?? What is wrong with America?? Also, isn't it pretty hard for a lesbian to get pregnant? What will happen to her dog now? Well, at least she isn't anorexic anymore. BTW, does anyone know what Nick thinks of all this? I feel so sorry for him

How stupid can you be? This is about a real TV show and not about Ashley Spears,(who doesn't even exist anyway) You should get the facts before you write something the world can see and make you look like the ass you are!!

Well maybe they should switch it over to HBO then. When Dr. Baden was on there, they showed real autopsies being performed. Whats the point in watching the show if you can't see what it's about? If anything order the Dr.Baden dvds online.

I think that her show is great because it is inspiring our youth to want to have a career in something other than music videos and acting! We need more people like this to influence and not discourage!

This program should be filmed in a studio someplace, not in the public facility.
Additionally the expense it takes to accomodate the taping of this show are paid for by the taxpayers of Orange County. Dr. G is paid a considerable sum of $ to tape this show, at a government facility, at the same time she is being paid her salary (double dipping)
I disagree. See, her television program is not disrespecting the dead in any manner. It is meant to educate the living, but not (in so many words) to disrespect the deceased in any way, shape or form. So, if you don't like it- who cares, because her television program was ment to be!

Cops are overrated. Being a medic we need no guns, write no tickets, and just do what we can to appreciate life. I understand the human body as well as been an embalmers assistant. Dr. G is great. Let's count the illegal tactics OPD uses? I was going to be a cop but then I sayed to myself courage and LIFE doesn't happen through a barrel of a gun. Not to mention my team consist of firefighters not cops. Everyone has their place, I'll be their when EMS dispatches me to save your lives OPD, you will never be able to replace that. Like Dr. G we'll pick up your pieces, get over your pride we fight for peoples lives. Thank the Orlando fire fighters for responding to your smashed police car on 6/13 because you ran a light without your lights on and took out a civilian vehicle. WE SAVE YOUR LIFE when your guns don't work.

Dr. G works really hard to give the victim's family closure. They get the permission of the family before they ever tape it, therefore not disrespectful to the dead. If the camera people get in your way just ask them to move kindly. You are working with possibly the most talented medical examiner anyone has ever known and a tv star. You should be thankful that you get to work with people as talented and trained as the people at the district nine morgue. A lot of people would kill for that experience. I also believe that with the economy the way it is that anyone would jump at an opportunity for an extra income. Dr. G has inspired so many people with her book, including me. She is kind enough to share the things that she learns. Before I read her book, not even my mother could try to tell me to loose weight and she helps with heart surgery, but through her book and tv show she made me realize how important it is to stay healthy. I am positive that she isn't doing it for the fame or the fortune. She is probably just informing people how not to make the same mistakes another person made and wind up dead.

Would you turn down Cops-Orlando? That would be disruptive as well. Just who is in a hurry in the morgue? I imagine that there is some compensation from Discovery Channel. I find the show informative.
They won't film "COPS" in Orlando Florida because it would hurt our tourism! It is not aired to keep thoughts of negativity out of the people's mind. Straight from the horse's mouth!
