Japanese drama with some touches of comedy about a brilliant female freelance surgeon who as the introductry narration explains, hates authority, groups, and constraints. She is not a very smpathetic character. But as someone asks earlier on, if you had to have surgery performed on you, would you prefer someone who knew what they were doing, or someone with the right things to say. The series gives what I assume is a true insight into the political infighting, and fight for power that goes on in large city hospitals. It also exposes the incompetence of some doctors, and such things as gratuties, and patients with the pull being given priority over others. To me though the real heroine of the series is not Ryoko Yonekura as the lead character, but Yuki Uchida as another female doctor.
